Seven Thulin FA:s were ordered by the Army Aviation Company in 1918. Four were powered with 150 hp Benz engines, three with 160 hp Mercedes engines. 

The FA was intended to be a reconnaissance aircraft, but it had not very good flying characteristics and after the armistice it was mainly used for advanced training. One aircraft was converted in 1921 to target-tug. 

The model above is displayed at Flygvapenmuseum.  

Length: 7,75 m. Span: 12,80  m.  Maximum take-off weight:1.595 kg. Max. speed:130 km/h.
