One L84 was built by Albatros in Berlin-Johannisthal in 1930. It was designed to be armed, but no guns were fitted in accordance with the Paris agreements of 1925/1926. In September 1931 Albatros merged/was acquired by Focke-Wulf, becoming Focke-Wulf-Albatros. The merged company eventually reverted to the Focke-Wulf name.
Development of the aircraft was continued under the FW AL84 designation. At least six AL84-aircraft were built after 1935, using various engines. Aircraft #448 was fitted with a 600hp Rolls-Royce Kestrel III, aircraft #450 was fitted with a fuel-injected BMW engine. Deliveries to China were discussed, but never proceeded with.

Span: 11m
Length: 10.5m
Height: 5m
Speed: 260km/h
T/O weight varied from 2,150kg to 2,600kg

It has a very Arado look about it, especially the tail.
Until 1932 leading engineer in the Albatros design office was Walter Blume, who
then became leader of the design office of ... Arado . :D
