HansaBrandenburgGIbomber

A drawing of the Hansa-Brandenburg G.I

The Hansa-Brandenburg G.I is an Austro-Hungarian bomber produced from 1917-1918. I. It was a mostly conventional large, three-bay biplane with staggered wings of slightly unequal span. The pilot and bombardier sat in a large open cockpit at the nose of the aircraft, with a second open cockpit for a gunner in a dorsal position behind the wings. An unusual feature was the placement of the twin tractor engines. While the normal practice of the day was to mount these to the wings, either directly or on struts, the G.I had the engines mounted to the sides of the fuselage on lattices of steel struts. This arrangement added considerable weight to the aircraft and transmitted a lot of vibration to the airframe. [1]

Battlefield 1[]

This item has a Codex entry: Hansa-Brandenburg G.I
"Fitted with a tractor engine on either side of the fuselage, this bomber was used to test mounting large-calibre cannons on aircraft."

— In-game description

The Hansa-Brandenburg G.I is a vehicle introduced in the Battlefield 1: Apocalypse expansion. It replaces the Gotha G.IV bomber for the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Ottoman Empire teams. If the player happens to be close to a non-fully occupied bomber, then in the tooltip to enter the vehicle, it is named simply H-B G.1 Bomber.

Like the Gotha G.IV, the rear gunner is limited in terms of the angle of rotation. This puts it at a disadvantage compared to the Allied bombers — the Caproni Ca.5 and Airco DH.10.
