The quiz is new, the plane surely isn't. What is it?

A special request to Aerohack. Please give the "unwashed masses" a chance by not answering until after 0001 GMT 14 February. Please :O

I reckon it's a Gotha Bomber, but not sure which Mark.

But I bet you knew anyway!

I immediately thought Gotha as well, but absolutely no idea which Roman Numerals apply...

A G series Gotha but what mark is tough to say because the differences are mostly internal and the external ones (rear gunner position under tail for the IV) are not visible on the photo.

Drawing a bit of a blank on squadron markings too and my Germnan translator went home last year.

Very good Say Again S l o w l y.

My reference says it's a Gotha V, but the major difference between that and the IV is said to be nicer streamlining of the nacelles.
