The unique Gotha UWD was one of several different twin engine seaplanes ordered by the German Navy to fit their requirements for a long range reconnaissance and torpedo carrying aircraft (although there is no evidence to suggest it was ever armed with a torpedo). The Gotha UWD was developed from the G.1 land plane and was completed in December 1915. It was described as easy to fly, able to take to the air with ease and was smooth on landing. In a preview of things to come, Gotha UWD 120 was used to bomb England during early 1916.
