Introduction 1915

The AEG B.III was a German two-seat biplane reconnaissance aircraft produced in very small numbers from 1915. It was a further refinement of the B.I and B.II, with a fresh tailplane assembly, but was still only just adequate in performance and did not attract much interest. The B.III was put into reconnaissance and training roles in 1915, but was soon replaced by armed aircraft in the German military.
