Lohnerwerke GmbH, Vienna, began by building autos and fire trucks, but by 1910 they had branched into building Taubes and Pfeilflieger (arrow fliers), a design with strongly swept wings. The bulk of Lohner's army contributions were of the Pfeilflieger type, though they also built several seaplanes and Knoller and Aviatik licensed types.[1]

Production aircraft from the Great War or shortly thereafter include:
