At the end of 1915, Idflieg ordered ten new bombers. Gotha`s chief designer, Hans Burkhard, modified the G.I - now the fuselage was placed closer to the lower wing, and the center of gravity also changed. Two powerful Mercedes II.III engines powered the Gotha G.II. Initially the G.II had an eight-wheel main undercarriage which reduced the danger of a nose-over, but addressing the problems associated with this innovation were not followed-up completely. Finally, the Gotha G.II had received the usual four-wheeled undercarriage. The crew consisted of three - a bombardier-gunner in the front turret, a pilot in a central cockpit and a gunner in the rear.
