    Dan: I said I would be easy - but you at least have to get the spelling correct!

    BBofBW: Oh - I see, you win the initial question and it's all go for you!

    OK - first one coming up - be warned it will not be very easy.

    Cheers

    Congrats Black Baron of BW (Stifles a giggle) - you've done well!

    The AEG bomber could probably be attributed to the ii, iii or iv.

    Cheers
    I'll refine that to G. II then, the forward fuselage and MG cupola seems to indicate that more.....These damn goggles keep misting up is all.

    Prototypes eh? A typical trick by the dastardly Hun, but not enough to throw off the Baron!

    It's a Lloyd FJ 40.05

    More info: The Lloyd FJ 40.05 was a very unorthadox Austrian experimental fighter/reconnaisence biplane built in 1915. The design's faults were many and virtues were few. The aircraft never went beyond initial testing before development was halted. The primary stumbling block to the evolution of an effective fighter aircraft was the inability to fire into the forward arc without losing a propeller. Until the machine gun synchronization was invented, various aircraft manufacturers tried of solutions including pusher engine configuration attaching metal plates to the propeller, firing sideways, mounting a machine gun on the upper wing to fire over the arc of the prop, etc. None of these stop-gap measures proved to be the optimal method to achieve the goal of creating a truly efficient fighter-craft.The Lloyd Company designers tried a radically different approach to solve the problem. In 1915 they designed a two seat aircraft designated FJ (Flugzeugjäger) and received the Austro Hungarian Air Force designation 40.05.
