Meller-III, Dux

32k drawing from "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.105;

Differed from Nieuport-IV by strengthened undercarriage, added ailerons and tail (from Farman-XVI). Instead of single Nieuport propeller, two tractor propellers were installed on the wing, driven by chains. Performance was quite poor.

No production.
