Some years back i was in Lisbon and wandered into the Geronimo Museum and was confronted by the IIID which attempted the Atlantic crossing. This aircraft had longer wings and modified cockpits.

The next major update on the III was the Fairey IIIF.
I can not find information on a IIIE even if there was one.
