|The Roland G.I was the only Roland G-type design to be built. Roland built only single-engine aircraft; despite having two propellers, the G.I was powered by a single 245 hp Maybach Mb.IV engine located in the fuselage as indicated by the radiators mounted on the fuselage sides. The two propellers were driven by gears and shafts. The two crewmen are in their cockpits, with the gunner demonstrating his flexible machine gun. The Roland G.I was apparently designed for the Kampfflugzeug (battle plane), or aerial cruiser role, which quickly proved ineffective in combat.The claimed maximum speed of 160 km/h seems optimistic given the profusion of drag-producing struts supporting the propellers.||J.Herris - Roland Aircraft of WWI /Centennial Perspective/|
