The Gotha G.IV heavy bomber was used by the Imperial German Air Service during World War I. Designed for long-range service, on 25 May 1917, Gotha G.IVs bombing London caused the most severe casualties of any bombing raid of the war.
Up to 1,100 pounds (500 kg) of bombs were carried externally. The Gotha G.IV pilot's seat was offset to port and a connecting walkway allowed crew members to move between gun stations. An unusual innovation was a "gun tunnel" - the underside of the rear fuselage was open, and there was a slot in the upper surface of the fuselage that allowed the rear gunner to fire down through the fuselage to provide defense against attacks from below and behind as shown at the right.
This sport-scale ARF twin electric-powered pusher is designed for mid-to-advanced- level ARF-assemblers and pilots, features a 62 1/2-inch wingspan, outer wing panels that are removable, and scale-looking engine nacelles and landing gear.
