  Idflieg aircraft designation system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Idflieg designation system was used to generate German military aircraft designations prior to the end of World War I.
For example, the first "D"-class aircraft built by Fokker was designated the Fokker D.I, the second, the Fokker D.II.
The system fell into disuse with the end of German military aviation after the Armistice, and aircraft of the newly reborn Luftwaffe would be designated according to the RLM aircraft designation system.

The RLM aircraft designation system was an attempt by the aviation bureaucracy of the Third Reich to standardize and produce a identifier for each aircraft type produced in Germany.
More duplicates were created when the RLM allocated "8-" series numbers to captured foreign aircraft, such as Czech Zlin XII aircraft referred to as "8-12" when this same number was already being used for the Dornier Do 12.
Once accepted by Lufthansa or the Luftwaffe, major variants of the aircraft were suffixed alphabetically with a capital letter.

Designed to operate as dive bomber or low-level attack aircraft, the small Hs 132 was intended to be flown from a prone position, to reduce drag and to help the pilot to resist the expected accelerations, up to 12 g in the pull-out from the dive.
This aircraft was never built and its design features remain mysterious, but it was intended to be armed with a 75 mm DRP recoilless cannon, or alternatively with a pair of conventional 37 or 45 mm cannon.

I have come to believe that the correct answer to all of this is that under the Imperial German Army designation system the "D" designation of German WW-I aircraft DOES NOT stand for "Doppledecker".
A designation for all float equipped land planes or flying boats regardless of number of wings, seats, or horsepower.
The caption printed on the negative in German reads "LVG Doppledecker, System Schneider, Schulemachine" this is clearly a distinction between the training mission and the biplane configuration of the aircraft.

with the appearance of the experimental biplane V.1, machines were given a different designation to that previously used in order to emphasise that from that time onwards a type was made which differed in its entire conception from previous machines and this difference was the use of the cantilever wing system'.
The V.4 aircraft was in the Austro-Hungarian Empire at Matyasfold on the outskirts of Budapest.
I would believe Wagenfuhr would be referring to the V.5 aircraft as two of them were attached to JG I for combat evaluations.

He footnotes " The 'V' designations were introduced in July 1917 and were aplied retrospectively to earlier aircraft types.
To prevent confusion they are used in this book to identify Fokker V1-V6,although at the time these aircraft used Roman numerals prefixed by the letter 'D' in an earlier Fokker company designation system, which was,of course,discontinued with the adoption of the 'V' numbers.
He further notes that both Fokker and Idflieg considerd the aerofoil - section - shaped undercarriage axle of the Fokker types as a wing.

One of the reasons is probably that its design combines all the things we see as typical for that era - multi wing design, rotary engine, fabric covered wings and fuselage but still the plane has something distinctive.
The airplane as a weapon system was still new and the technical advances were fascinating for the people.
But since at this point no better German design was available the type had to stay in service until it could be replaced by more advanced types in spring 1918.

The '''Idflieg designation system''' was used to generate Germany German military aircraft designations prior to the end of World War I.
(''Wasser'' - "water") It is a popularly-held misconception that the '''D''' and '''E''' designations referred exclusively to ''Doppeldecker'' ("biplane") and ''Einedecker'' ("monoplane") respectively, but not all D-class aircraft were biplanes and not all E-class were monoplanes.

The real difference when it comes to the D.VII variants (and correct me if I'm wrong) is the forward fuselage of the aircraft.
Just looking at the sprues you can see that there are two engines, two exhaust stacks, two sets of wheels/axles, and three different props.

 The Aerodrome Forum - A-class designation for German planes
23 November 2001 06:54 AM As far as I know (and that is not very much) A-class aircraft were unarmed monoplanes (the whole variety of different Taube types) used for reconnaisance during the first days of WW1 and later for pilot training.
23 November 2001 10:06 PM I think I remember the designation "A" was originally simply meaning "Aeroplane" and "B" possibly "Biplane".
23 November 2001 10:10 PM I forgot to say: the word "Aeroplan" was also very widespread in Germany in the first time - therefore the abbreviation or designation "A" made sense.
