O.Thetford, P.Gray German Aircraft of the First World War (Putnam)
Sablatnig C III
Although no data on this interesting machine is available, it appears to have been based on the same ply-covered fuselage and tail surfaces as the C II. The low wing was of parallel chord and fitted with overhung, balanced ailerons. It was cable braced to the top of the fuselage, and underneath the cables were anchored to an additional pylon incorporated in the undercarriage chassis. A large lifting surface, as in the Fokker D VII, faired in the axle and spreaders. Engine, 245 h.p. Maybach Mb IV (probably).
