UFAG D.I (60.02)

  The UFAG D.I monoplane fighter was designed by Oberingenieur Stanko Bloudek who, when interviewed some years ago, recalled that it was begun as a private venture project conceived along the lines of the Fokker E.V parasol fighter. Assembly was at an advanced stage in the autumn of 1918, but difficulties encountered in the construction of the wooden, semi-monocoque fuselage delayed progress. Power was supplied by a 150 hp Le Rhone(St) rotary engine, making it likely that the D.I was designed to the LFT interceptor fighter specification. Bloudek claimed that he devised a simplified synchronization mechanism to control the twin machine guns. The three-view drawing is based on an original factory drawing dated 5 June 1918. Neither the UFAG monoplane fighter project nor the prototype number 60.02 have been mentioned in extant LFT documents. Pending the discovery of new information, it seems logical to assume that the prototype number 60.02 was reserved for the D.I monoplane.

UFAG Series 65

  The series 65 designation was never assigned or used by UFAG, nor did UFAG build the "Brandenburg D.I(U) series 65 fighter" under license, as has often been claimed. In fact, in the extant LFT documents there is no record that Flars ever contemplated having UFAG manufacture the Brandenburg D.I fighter.
