Germania C II
  This was a development of the Germania C I, with reduced gap and staggered mainplanes. Prototype only.

Germania C.II Armed Reconnaissance Aircraft

  The Germania C.II was also designed as a reconnaissance/combat two-seater with the 260 hp Maybach MB.IVa engine. It was an improved C.I with lowered upper wing and an airfoil cooler (see Germania C.I, Version C). The single prototype was built in 1917.


Germania C.III Armed Reconnaissance Aircraft

  An enlarged version of the Germania C.II with a more conventional tail unit was the Germania C.III. The C.III was virtually identical to the C.II except for the different tail that featured balanced elevators and a balanced rudder with the fin now separate from the fuselage construction.

Germania C.II prototype. The fuselage appeared to be painted to match the printed camouflage fabric used for the wings and horizontal tail instead of being covered with the fabric.

The camouflage on the Germania C.II prototype was either carefully painted on or printed camouflage fabric was applied over the fuselage ply covering. This enlargement of the previous photo shows the camouflage smoothly covering a circular inspection hatch, indicating it was painted, not fabric-covered.

Germania C.II. It differed from the C.I primarily in that the upper wing was lowered, providing better visibility for the pilot and a better field of fire above and forward for the gunner. It also had an airfoil radiator. (Peter M Grosz collection/STDB)

Germania C.III prototype was developed from the C.II and had an enlarged, more conventional tail. Although Germania specialized in trainers, the C.I, C.II, and C.III were serious attempts to develop competitive combat aircraft.
