 THE German C-class two-seaters ushered in a new phase for reconnaissance machines. Up-rated motors fitted to existing airframes enabled machine guns to be carried replacing the carbines and pistols of earlier types. With a rotating gun ring at the rear-brainchild of Swiss engineer Franz Schneider-the first Kampfflugzeuge designs from Ago,Albatros,Aviatik,Brandenburg,DFW,Gotha and LVG entered service in early 1915 and German reconnaissance units never looked back. Peter M Grosz describes one of the best of these and as well as over 90 excellent images of the LVG C.II, including close-ups of engines and cockpits,there are six pages of 1:48 and 1:72 scale drawings plus three profiles on the rear covers.A superb reference package!
