Type KDD
  
  The KDD was a two-seat reconnaissance plane derived from the KD and retaining the star-strut arrangement. The biplane was of typical Brandenburg mixed construction. Armament was a single machine gun. The pilot had limited forward view being enclosed in his cockpit by the upper wing and engine cowling in an attempt to streamline the aircraft. The first prototype, 60.56, was not successful although it underwent considerable modifications, including three changes of wings.
  A second machine, 60.57, was built that incorporated all the lessons learned from the first. It too was unsuccessful but survived the war before being destroyed.

The KDD in its original form. The pilot was positioned beneath the upper wing in order to make the machine as streamlined as possible, but without the visibility required for a fighting machine.
