Tasse, the Do D was a seaplane version of the Do C III - Komet III, It originally had a RR Eagle of 360hp.
Later it was re-engined with a BMW VI of 600hp and redesignated the Do D Bas.
First flown in 1926, the airplane was developed as a torpedo bomber, it set records for speed and distance in 1927.
A total of 29 were built with most going to the Yugoslav Naval Air Service.
Data for Do D Bas (Do D in parentheses)
Span - 19.60 m
Length - 13.45 m (12.82 m)
Wing area - 62.40 sq m
Empty weight - 2950 kg (2000 kg)
Loaded weight - 3900 kg (3059 kg)
Max speed - 195 kph (182 kph)
Max range - 700 km (370 km)
Service ceiling - 3600 m (3500 m)
Can't help you much more than that.

You may have this link already. It has info on many early German designs. There is a "back" button at the top of the page that will take you to a directory of other aircraft.

Thank you gentlemen. I have always thought that this would make an excellent flying model. Perhaps one day i will get around to it.
