friedg2-1

 

The prototype G.I was developed into the more powerful (149kW Benz Bz.IV) G.II in 1916.


With slightly shorter wings and a single fin/rudder tail unit, power came from twin 200-hp Benz Bz IV engines mounted between the wings and driving pusher propellers. Successfully passing its official trials, the G.II went into limited production.
