Some Espenlaub designations are really puzzling ...

E 6 : Anfangschulgleiter

EA 1 : Single seat glider for towing (the two seats E 7 was too heavy for towing) and rocket test .

no E " 13" ...

E 14 : Two seats monoplane

E 15 (E 16??):Typ Soldenhoff A (??)

E 16 ( E 15 ??): High wing tailless tractor (later used for rocket test ??)
