Anatra-Monocoque, Anatra DM, Anamon, A.A.Anatra


Fighter single-seat monoplane. No technical drawings or photos known to survive. Aircraft had slim plywood fuselage and mid-placed trapezoid wing with cut out viewing aperture. Landing gear - same as on Anade.

It was flown June 18-16 1916. Pilots did not accept this aircraft - they disliked its 'long' (150m!) takeoff and Landing Roll as well as steep gliding. Deep pilot's position also was not appreciated.

Improvements were suggested, but after minor damage aircraft was abandoned.

One built.
