I was reading a profile of the Siemens Schuckert D III and D IV
and was surprised to read that the production of these planes did not
end with the Armistice. According to this Profile the production of D IV's
did not end until mid 1919. It goes on to say that most of the airframes
were destroyed according to the terms of the Treaty. So what happened?
Did the folks at S.S.W. think that they might be able to make a few bucks
on some extra airframes? This is a puzzle. I thought that all a/c
production was halted at the end of the war.
