German Rumpler Reconnaissance Planes

The German aircraft industry excelled in producing efficient aircraft for high altitude reconnaissance duties and pioneered the use of aircraft specifically designed for the ground attack role. The Rumpler was one of the best:


The Rumpler C.IV-VII were virtually indistinguishable from the outside. Engine installation and equipment fittings were the primary differences. This aircraft is shown to represent an aircraft that flew with the unit Flieger-Abteilung (A ) 253 during the late summer of 1918. Leutnant der Reserve Hanns-Gerd Rabe flew numerous long range patrols. The aircraft's high ceiling kept it relatively safe from pursuing Allied fighters.
