O.Thetford, P.Gray German Aircraft of the First World War (Putnam)
The designation of quadruplane (vierdecker) was something of a misnomer, for the top surfaces were, in fact, full-span ailerons, although the machine was later modified and normal ailerons fitted. Engine, 100 h.p. Oberursel U I. Area, 46.175 sq.m. (498.7 sq.ft.). Weights: Empty, 883.5 kg. (1,844 lb.). Loaded, 1,383.5 kg. (3,044 lb.).

EULER VIERDECKER Germany
Although referred to as a vierdecker (quadruplane), this Euler fighter powered by a 100 hp Oberursel U I seven-cylinder rotary, which commenced its flight test programme in December 1917, was technically a triplane in that the top surfaces were, in fact, full-span ailerons acting as a controllable fourth wing surface. The poor performance demonstrated during evaluation at Adlershof, which was continuing in May 1918, precluded further military interest in the design, although a second prototype was completed with a 110 hp Goebel Goe II seven-cylinder rotary. Both prototypes were transported out of the Allied zone of occupation in December 1918.
