The WW1 Super Bomber – Gotha G.V

Gotha G.V

Just as Londoners were able to sleep again after the German Zeppelin attacks had ceased during World War I, a new threat emerged: the Gotha. The Gotha G.V was the world’s first mass-produced bomber. The Germans initially used it to bomb the English capital during the day. But as the war progressed, their strategy changed to nighttime raids. Thousands of citizens would take cover during the nights fearing surprise attacks, but the lack of English culture would ultimately be the Germans’ stumbling block during one last massive raid. Still, the Gothas had a significant impact on England’s history, from hundreds of lives lost to the ignition of the legendary Royal Air Force and even the change of the Royal Family’s name.
