Because there is nothing forcing them to stay in waterways (they are land units, and thus can move anywhere land units can move) - which is the obvious answer, but I am not sure how to keep them ocean bound.

It's just confusing. One would expect that seaplanes remain near water.
But here the Russian drags 142! Seaplane with him. :wacko:

Technically at least seplanes could operate from rivers and lakes. But of course in most cases it would make little sense to employ naval aviation inland...

Yes, but I doubt that anyone has ever used it. Not even the Russians.
This should also not be simulated in the game.

Tbh I dont see the problem. There is hardly a place in Europe without water, and a slow-moving 1914 seaplane could land on any large enough lake and river.
In WW2 Russians operated even from frozen water.

Ha! :)

Surprisingly, Reds used seaplanes based on river aircraft carriers (actually barges) during the Russian Civil War:

Possible solution could be to make sea planes river going units?
