The first request is for Bolshoi Bal'tisky

This is the only available image I got by google searching. Also, I got a side view linedrawing from book, but still lacking 3 views.

Second request is for Zeppelin Staaken.
Not lacking anything connecting this airplane just want to know is this the airplane with numbered wheel at most for either WWI or any era?

Third request for mates here is below:

BreguetBrM5.jpg

These two have something in common, not something else but something looks external fuel tank alike under wing.
Only these two have been found by moi with such external fuel tanks being WWI era, anymore was being?

"..Second request is for Zeppelin Staaken.

You are referring to the R.IV, I think, which had 8 wheels on each main gear axle and to on the nose gear, so 18 wheels
altogether? Don't know for the WW I era, but for any era, the C-5 Galaxy should excel this number with ease.

About external tanks during WWI, I think, you've already posted another example by yourself: The cylindrical objects above
the engines of the Sikorsky "Bolshoi Bal'tisky", or "Russki Witjas", as it seemed to have been called, probably were fuel
tanks, too.

More on the Grand Baltiysky (supposed to be Sikorsky's "S-21"):
