Halberstadt CL.IV-  “Replica”

halberstadt 140x85Introduced in 1918, the Halberstadt CL.IV was designed to improve on the successful ground attack design of the CL.II.  Design changes in the CL.IV gave it much greater maneuverability, and allowed it to better avoid ground fire.
In addition to the single machine gun controlled by the pilot, the rear gunner, sitting in his own ring-mount cockpit, fired a slightly different gun that had a superior rate of fire that could be directed at ground targets as well as air-to air defense.
The plane could also carry bombs and hand grenades arranged around the rear ring for the gunner to drop on targets of opportunity.  Flights of four to six aircraft would fly as low as 100 feet from the ground to precede an infantry attack.
