avis3


Developed in parallel with the AVIS II and entering flight test shortly afterwards in 1935, the AVIS III was powered by a 550hp Manfred Weiss-built Gnome- Rhone 9Krsd Mistral nine-cylinder radial engine driving a three-bladed adjustable-pitch Hamilton Standard propeller. Unlike the preceding AVIS fighters which were of all-metal construction, the AVIS III had wooden wings with a combination of plywood and fabric skinning, and four prototypes were laid down. The AVIS III demonstrated improved characteristics, but lacking the agility of the Fiat CR.32, which was meanwhile evaluated by the Legilyi Hivatal and adopted for service, it was not ordered into production. The armament of the AVIS III was two 7.62mm Gebauer machine guns, and one of the four prototypes was completed with minor modifications as the AVIS IV.
