It seems the BE12 'fighter' was nothing but a BE2 with a fuel tank where the observer/gunner had sat. It was actually designed as a long-range reconaissance aircraft and was far too stable to be a fighter. Withdrawn from France very quickly for training in England. The most memorable thing one did was to shoot down a Zeppelin later in the war.
