Description:
Following World War I, the need arose to renew the aging air force of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (KSHS - Kraljevina Srba, Hrvata i Slovenaca) which consisted mostly of obsolete war relics. The Kingdom approached the Dornier factory having recognized its reputation for quality instead of going exclusively to its traditional ally, France. Of course, wartime reparation payments played a role in this decision, however this is not to detract from the fact that at the time airplanes which the Kingdom expressed interest in and eventually purchased from Dornier, had no equivalents.
