The Halberstadt C.III was a two-seater focused on long-range photography mission. The lower wings were attached to a "keel" running along the bottom side of the fuselage to increase the gap. The C.III design was largely reused in the Halberstadt C.V, though that plane reverted to more conventional lower-wing mounting.  Only six machines were completed, according to an Idfleig report.
