After the Rumpler 6B1 had been a moderate success, an improved model with twin machine guns and better aerodynamics was ordered in 1917. By the time it was delivered, the German Navy had moved away from single-seat seaplanes. Though it saw some action, many 6B2's served as trainers, and four were sold to Austria-Hungary. The last 6B2 was delivered in January 1918.
