Cigar-sharped steerable balloon, it seems.

While the title here uses "Tragkörpern", the Austrian and Luxembourgish versions use "Triebwerken". (Incidentally the Austrian version also has a different IPC classification according to DPMA.) The international derivatives of this patent, while basically similar, were filed three years later, and may reflect some evolution of the design, especially in light of the supplementary German filing Patent DE-1897-103569.
