Aviatik D VII
|FIGHTER||Virtual Aircraft Museum / Germany / Aviatik|
The D.VII, which was intended to participate in the third D-type Contest of October 1918, was essentially similar to the D.VI apart from having completely redesigned vertical and horizontal tail surfaces. Like its predecessor it was powered by a geared Benz Bz Illbm eight-cylinder Vee engine driving a four-bladed propeller. Armament comprised the standard twin 7.92mm synchronised machine guns, and only one prototype was completed.
