What where the external differences between a Fokker E.II and an E.III ?
I know that there were differences in span and lenght. But that's hard to judge from photographs. What's about the cowling? I have looked to my sources and got the feeling that the E.III mostly did have the familiar cowling with the elephant ear type side cowlings. The early E.III seems to have a squared variant ( f.e. shown in the Windsock Datafile on the E.III, first color profile).
Now my question: Did all E.II have this squared type side cowling or are there mixed types also? Is the squared type a good hindsight to identify a E II ???
Thanks in advance!
