Hansa-Brandenburg L.14

10/31/2011. A derivative of the KD (D.I) with larger overall dimensions, simplified interplane bracing and a 200 hp Hiero six-cylinder water-cooled engine, the L.14 single-seat fighter was evaluated by the Austro-Hungarian air arm in 1917, but was not accepted for series production. Two prototypes were built and flown, these differing primarily in the arrangement of the interplane bracing struts employed, and intended armament was twin 0.315 in (8.00 mm) Schwarzlose synchronized machineguns.
