The Rumpler Taube ('Dove') design was Germany's first mass-produced aircraft. First flown in 1910, the aircraft was deployed in every conceivable role - fighter, bomber, reconnaisance, trainer. An important asset in World War I, used to detect advancing Russian troops at the Battle of Tannenberg (1914) and dropped bombs & propaganda leaflets over Paris (1914). Note the lack of ailerons. The pilot warped the wings while adjusting the rudder to turn. This is actually A.118/13, stored in Poland during WWII.
