AVIS / Anderlik-Varga-Iskola-Sport AVIS II

 

avis2


The poor results achieved with the AVIS I fighter prompted Prof Abody-Anderlik and his team to redesign the aircraft despite the decision of the Legilyi Hivatal to acquire 21 Fiat CR.20bis fighters from Italy. While retaining the Jupiter VI engine, the redesigned fighter, the AVIS II, featured a slimmer, slab-sided fuselage, redesigned vertical tail surfaces, narrower interplane bracing struts and increased gap. Empty weight was reduced by 100kg and, after initial trials, the engine was enclosed by a Townend ring. The AVIS II commenced flight test early in 1935, but still proved overweight and lacking in the agility demonstrated by contemporary foreign fighters. The planned armament of twin 7.62mm Gebauer guns was never fitted. Development was abandoned in favour of the higher-powered AVIS III.
