About This File

The Rumpler 6B was a float plane version of the Rumpler C.I. It had more forward stagger to the upper wing and a larger rudder than the land version. The fuselage was also modified to make the plane a one man fighter.

 

I have made an early version, the 6B-1. The 6B-2 was introduced later and was slightly larger, had a different tail, and didn't perform as well as the 6B-1. The Rumpler 6B-1 was a fighter and saw service in the Baltic, the North Sea, and the Black Sea.

 

Since it's a float plane, the 6B-1 works best in the Flanders, Gibraltar or other terrain that has a lot of water. The plane will actually take off and land from a conventional airfield, but it looks strange to see the floats going under the ground. It would be best to start the missions in the air.

 

I have included two skins, a standard German "Sea Hex" camo and a mottled green and blue camo. My skinning templates are included with the download. I have also included a set of number decals.
