ⓘ Albatros W.4

The Albatros W.4 was a German floatplane derivative of the Albatros D.I fighter with new wing and tail surfaces of greater span than the D.I. One hundred eighteen examples were built between June 1916 and December 1917. The aircraft operated in the North Sea and Baltic theatres and later served as training aircraft.

V. 4 was equipped with the same 120 kW 160 HP Mercedes as the engine is mounted on the D. I based on the same fuselage. The first production V. series 4S were armed with one 7.92 mm. lMG08 312 in the gun. Later the aircraft was carrying two guns.
