Not to be unhelpful but that doesn't look like a torpedo aircraft. The undercarriage struts would inhibit centerline storage.

I agree .
I think that the torpedo aircraft is the Caspar C.St.18 shown in the same " Taschenbuch der Luftflotten "

BUT the Caspar designations are very confusing :

- CI 14 single seater for Langsdorff is CS 14 for Green and a 2 seater for Lange
- CS 14 for Langsdorff is CJ 14 for Lange and CI 14 for Nowarra
- CC 15 for Langsdorff is a land 2 seater ,but a seaplane for Lange
- CSt 18 for Langsdorff and Lange is a seaplane ,a land single seater for Nowarra (the Langsdorff's CS 14 )

Maybe Swallow could help ?

Hello Richard ,

As far as I know , Caspar CC 15 is a torpedobomber with a crew off 2 ,
and the Caspar Cst 18 a fighter with a crew off 1 ,
the Caspar Cst 18 also used a undercarriage who was not so good for the use
off a torpedo ! ( The Cst 18 was a development of the CI 14 )

"CS 14 for Langsdorff is CJ 14 for Lange and CI 14 for Nowarra "

To make matters even more confusing :
Here are the CJ 14 and the CS 14, as shown in H.Stützer "Die deutschen
Militärflugzeuge 1919-1934" Both were fighters, but I think, they have not
much in common, apart from the "C" and the "14" in the designation

Hello
Looking closer in

-Taschenbuch der Luftflotten 1926
-Verbotene Flugzeuge
-German combat planes
-Typenhandbuch Luftfahrttechnik

I think that this could be the right ID ,but ,indeed ,I'm not 100% sure :
