The Friedrichshafen FF 49C - an extremely sturdy aeroplane, even able to land in comparatively rough seas to pick up 'ditched crews'. There were about 235 in service between Sept 1917 and March 1918. The majority were armed with one fixed forward firing spandau machine gun and a manually operated parabellum machine gun in the rear cockpit.


Hansa-Brandenburg W12
These heavily armed two seat fighter was developed in 1916 to overcome lack of defence against attacks from the rear. The elevated siting of the rear gun mounting gave it an all round field of fire even over the top wing and the absence of interplane bracing cables meant that it was also possible for it to fire between the wings.

HB W12s had a top speed of 100mph, an edurance of 3£ hoursand could reach a ceiling of 16,400ft.
