Rol.C.II

Josef Scott:
The Rol.C.II was flown by Schusta 2,5,15,17,21,24b,26,27b and 28b. By June 1917 all the Rol.C.II machines were withdrawn from front service. It was the "Hot Rod" of the C.Class aircraft with performance of the 1916 fighter aircraft.

If you are referring "Schlachtflieger!" , it is not out yet, I think it will be next spring or so.

Can't wait! This is coinciding perfectly with my newly expanding interest in 2-seaters. By-the-by, did you uncover any more info on Gottfried Ehman or his Halb CLII?

Schlachtflieger!

Josef Scott:
Rick Duiven would be better at answering your question about Gottfried Ehmann. I wanted to do his Halb.Cl.II in five view color. I was unable to find a photo of his Halb.Cl.II with the aircraft number. The book will have about 300 pages with about 200 photos be around 30 pages a three view line drawings of every type of German aircraft used by the Schusta and Schlasta. There are 11 plates of colored profiles illustrating the markings of 30 known (72) profiles and 5 profiles of markings of unknown units. There are 8 colored plates of 5 views, Schlasta 27b Halb.Cl.II, A red and yellow Halb.Cl.II of Schlasta 21, Halb.Cl.II of Schlasta 23b, Halb.Cl.IV of Schlasta 21, Han.Cl.II of Schlasta 12, Han.Cl.II of Schlasta 25, Han.Cl.III of Schlasta 9, Han.Cl.IIIa of Schlasta 20. I believe this will be the reference book for the Schustas and Schlasta in the future.
Rick has put together the unit histories and personnel rosters of almost all the units. He has done one helluva job. I am real proud of Rick.
Blue skies,
Dan-San

Then why was it withdrawn?

Unfortunately, not much. He's a mystery man, considering he was the top German two-seater ace. R.

Drawings of the C types.

Josef Scott:
The line drawings cover these C Class aircraft in chronological order.
Alb.C.III, Alb.C.V, Alb.C.VII*, Rol.C.II*, Ru.C.I, AEG.C.IV*, DFW C.V*, LVG.C.IV, Ago.C.IV, Alb.C.X, Ru.C.IV, Alb.C.XII, LVG.C.V*, Halb.Cl.II*, Han.Cl.II*, Han.Cl.III*, Han.Cl.IIIa*, Alb.J.I*, Halb.Cl.IV*. That is a total of 19 C. Class machines in three view line drawings. Those also illustrated in 77 colored profiles are marked with an asterisk*. The camouflage schemes of all the illustrated aircraft are covered in detail in the text.
Some aircraft , like the DFW C.V show colored illustrations of DFW built in several different camouflage schemes. The model builder will have a variety scheme to select from All the scheme employed by Halberstadt and Hannover are illustrated.
Blue skies,
Dan-San
