  Parseval-Puffin
 

 

Built in 1913 by Luft-Fahrzeug-Gesellschaft, the non-rigid Parseval PL-14 Burewestnik was purchased in Germany by the Russian Federation and called "Parseval-II” (maybe was called "Puffin" or “Burevestnik / Petrel”).
 
 
Burevestnik was filled with gas in the first half of November, 1914 and executed some flights before it was recognized as unsuitable in fighting conditions. It was armed with machine guns and had bombs. It was not used in combat. It flew with the Russian Federation until 1915.
