The excellent book Sailplanes 1920 - 1945 by Martin Simons includes an excellent write-up, photos and scale drawings of this glider. A quote from the book, "In 1936 Jacobs designed an improved and enlarged version of the Rhönsperber, the Sperber Senior. Despite the name this was really a new design with a different, double tapered wing of greater span, less cambered airfoil sections and entirely new fuselage and tail unit. Only one was built."
