Gotha WD 15

12/29/2014. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "Built towards the end of 1917, the unarmed WD 15 patrol seaplane was little more than an enlarged WD 12 with ply-skinned fuselage and fin. It was the most powerful and also the last single-engined machine to be supplied by Gotha to the German Navy. Only two were built, serial 842 and 843, powered by a 260 hp Mercedes D.IVa.
