The Lohner Type L looked much like the earlier Lohner E, but it had a larger engine. Pilot and observer sat side-by-side, with the observer on the right with a rotating Schwarzlose. The Type L's were widely used in the Adriatic and over the Italian mainland. When a Type L was captured by the Italians in the summer of 1915, it was analyzed and led to the Macchi flying boats. [1]
