Based on the highly successful pre-war two-seater design developed in Germany by Ernst Heinkel, the Centrala Flygverkstäderna Malmslätt (CFM), the Swedish Military Aircraft Factory near Linköping Sweden produced an improved design for training and reconnaissance purposes. The powerplant was a Mercedes 120 hp or 160 hp liquid cooled engine. The radiator was placed on the leading edge of the top wing to ensure maximum efficiency. A gravity feed fueltank was placed under the upper wing in the space between the two braces of the wing pylon.

The fuselage was of a monocoque plywood box construction, lacking the wire crossbracing usually applied at this time. Wings were of standard construction, fabric covered. Only the upper wings had ailerons, which had a pronounced wash out. The rudder and elevator were balanced, fabric covered. 

The aircraft had dual controls and was very stable in the air. Sometimes it was considered to slow and tolerant for a trainer. Some 35 aircraft were built with the two different engine configurations. One aircraft is preserved in the Swedish Airforce Museum in Linköping, Sweden.

Available in ARF and RNF. The airplane is packed in a strong 3-ply, custom made carton. The individual parts are packed in sealed plastic bags and then wrapped in bubble plastic to ensure safe transport.
