Lohner L type: One of Porco Rosso’s Foes.

Lohner L type: One of Porco Rosso's Foes.

This Austro-Hungarian Lohner L’s were the result of adding more powerful engines to the basically pre-war E type.Those neat artifacts were very successful in the heavily contended Adriatic Sea skies; the Austrian navy used them as fighters and to bomb ships and land targets.Germany also found them oustanding and built some under licence.

Sharp drawing of this Lohner over his Fleet. Lohners was known by their previous “Pfeil- flieger / Arrow Flyer,” model that used a swept-back biplane wing, the L still displayed that lovely configuration.

Artist: M Pozar
