Schütte-Lanz Airship Bombing Warsaw

An old WWI propaganda postcard I bought recently which shows Schütte-Lanz Airship SL2 bombing Warsaw in 1914.

 

The SL2 was 144 metres in length, but she was later extended to 156 meters, with a beam of 18 metres.

 

She could carry a payload of 8 to 10 tonnes at about 88km/h (47 knots).
