I have a very basic question, did the Taube fly under
Ottoman or German colors in the Middle East Theater?

Thank you
Jon

Here is a page with (all?) Turkish planes used during the Great War:

But I did´t see the Taube there.

I may be wrong, but while there were certainly Tauben in service with the German and Austro-Hungarian air services, including one with the Germans at Tsingtao in China, but I can't find mention of them being used by the Turks. However, the generic term used by many Allied soldiers, especially the Australian Light Horse, to describe any enemy aeroplane was Taube.
