    Regarding the 2x600hp Dornier Do 18D rather than the 2x880hp Do 18G:

    what was the max. speed?
    What was the range?
    What was the weight empty?

    Thanks,

    Neil

    Thanks. I think the stats you have got are for the Do 18G. The Do 18D had Jumo 205C 600hp engines and an armament of 2 x 7.92mm MG 15s.

    Regards,

    Neil
