The Brandenburg NW was a early floatplane based on the Brandenburg W. Thirty-two were delivered to the German Navy during 1915. Deliveries starting in January 1916 carried a radio and sometimes bomb racks for ten 5kg bombs. 
The NW did most of its work off the North Sea coast in the early days when defensive armament was more of a luxury than a necessity. Deliveries in late 1916 through 1917 are presumed destined as trainers, because most seaplanes would have been armed at that time.
