C.Owers Hansa-Brandenburg Aircraft of WWI Vol.1: Landplanes (A Centennial Perspective on Great War Airplanes 17)


Type L 15
  
  The two-seat L 15 was Brandenburg's reply to a Flars specification for an aircraft powered by the new 345-hp Daimler engine. The L 15 was a large, good-looking two-seat machine with its propeller faired by a spinner into the neatly cowled V-12 engine. The pilot was equipped with a fixed, synchronized machine gun, and the observer had the usual flexible machine gun. Appearing in June 1917 the machine was nose heavy and broke its back in a hard landing. Rebuilt with two-bay wings, it survived the war.
