Balloons with US-Air Service in Germany 1918-1921

I' m looking for information about the type of Balloon they use and how many units they have at that time. I know about 10 different Balloon-Companies and locations, but there must be more!!

Hans,

Interesting subject!

It appears that the US forces mainly used French-designed Caquot Type R balloons.

See

Number of balloon companies reached over 100, but not all served in Europe.

Grüss,

Leendert
