ABC / Anient, Buranelli & Carisi Military Biplane
 
The rationale of the name, A B C, is. firstly, that it contains the initials of those associated in the development of the machine; and, secondly, that it expresses the constructional simplicity, which is a prominent feature of the machine.
 
In April 1915, a machine to be known as the A B C Military Biplane (pusher"), was to make its debut shortly. Mr. Robert S. Anient, a well-known newspaper artist, was directing the exploitation, and Messrs. John Carisi and Yincent J. Buranelli were responsible for the design and construction of the machine.
 
The airplane was designed to especially facilitate quick assembling, and the machine, being a pusher, has a splendid range of vision, and for military work gives the gunner a sweep of 180 deg. The machine is a two-seater, seats arranged side by side, and dual controls are provided. The fuselage is covered entirely with duralumin. The landing chassis has four wheels, two in front, to facilitate running over rough ground.
 
The top wing warps from the end uprights out, similar to a monoplane. The power plant was to be a 100-hp specially built A B C aviation motor.
