The machine is known as the Hansa-Brandenburg and represents the Austrian version of the German Albatross type. While designed as a reconnaissance machine, neither its speed nor its radius of action are such as to make it particularly suited for this service. It is, moreover, characterized by a number of features of design that must make it a difficult machine to handle in maneuvering or fighting, though these features have gone unchanged since it first appeared. Probably, it is these qualities which have made it a comparatively easy prey for the Italian pilots.
