The Brandenburg GW was a torpedo bomber from 1916. Twenty-six were delivered and most operated from the seaplane station at Angernsee in Courland. [2] When experiments with torpedo-bombing proved unproductive, most were probably converted to patrol and training duties.

Three varieties were built, starting with the first ten in April through August 1916, followed by five with a single rudder and more rounded nose in September 1916-Jan 1917, and a final batch of five in autumn 1917 with a shorter fuselage. One experimental model with larger lifting surfaces was built in 1916.[1]
