Three Hansa-Brandenburg W.26 floatplanes were built and used for patrols in the North Sea. The type had originally been designed without armament, but by the time they were built, some self-protection was a requirement, so guns were fitted for the observer and pilots. They were robust and they had an eight-hour duration, and they carried wireless.
