Fokker A.III / E.III




The E I was soon superseded by the generally similar E II with the 75-kW (100-hp) U.I rotary for improved performance and then by the definitive E III with detail modifications. The final attempt to wring extra capability out of the basic design was the overweight E IV with two guns and the 119-kW (160-hp) U.lll rotary. Total E-series production was about 300 aircraft including 258 E.III.


The E.I and E.II were built in both armed and unarmed versions, and mainly used for training, before the armed versions were re-engined with a 74.6 kW / 100 hp Oberursel rotary and re-designated E.III. They also had lengthened wings, could carry more fuel and had greater ammunition capacity.
