A.E.G.'s most famous planes were their twin-engine bombers, starting with the G.I of Spring 1915. The AEG G.III started deliveries in May 1916. It was the first A.E.G. bomber with balanced control surfaces which were easier on the pilot. Forty-five were built until they were replaced with the G.IV. They saw continued use until at least early summer 1917. While one prototype borrowed the triple-rudder from some G.IIs, all of the production aircraft were built with a single rudder.
