Dornier Do.H Falke / Seefalke

 

Dornier pursued the clandestine development of military aircraft, including the DoH Falke and Seefalke all-metal cantilever high-wing fighter monoplanes in 1922 and the DoD twin-float torpedo bomber monoplane in 1926.


Manufactured at Altenrhein / Pisa, the Do.H was a relatively modern design. Fitted with floats, the Falks was available a sea-based fighter, too. Several engine variants existed.


In cooperation with Wright, the Wright H3 was fitted and the Falke offered to the US-Navy.
