Hi,

I am not sure about this; HV.7 was a sporting aircraft.

Hi hesham,

Designation HV.7 suggests that it was rather communication (V = Verkehr) not sporting (S = Sport) aircraft. But I'm not sure. It was probably only project.

Regards,

Just a guess: HV 328 (or HV.3/28) suggests a further Hopfner HV.3/27 airliner development. 'HS.1335' (or 'HS.13/35') sounds like a proposed civil sport derivative of the Hopfner-Hirtenberg HM.13/34 military trainer biplane.
