Germania Taube (Observation Aircraft/Trainer)

  Despite innovative elements, such as the wooden band tube technology, Egwin Leiber's early designs did not have any significant success. Neither the already mentioned Taube with a 50 hp four-cylinder Argus engine (1912) nor the other Tauben (doves) with a 100 hp six-cylinder Argus engine, a few of which were still delivered to the army or navy in 1914/1915, resulted in a viable series production. All Taube fanciers used tape tube technology, with the wings having the traditional Zanonia shape.
  The exact number of Germania A.I Tauben delivered is not known. S 18 was a naval landplane that was likely a Germania A.I (noted as a Rahtjen).
