Germania Type JM
  This Germania single-seater was built in the spring of 1916 and was to the then popular "Walfisch" (Whale) formula, with deep fuselage completely filling the gap. Construction was orthodox wood and fabric with plywood-skinned fuselage. Engine, 100 h.p. Argus As I. Armament, none.

GERMANIA JM Germany

  The Germania JM (Jagdmaschine) experimental single-seat fighter was based on the promising results of wind tunnel testing with the Walfisch (Whale) fuselage configuration at Gottingen. Designed by J Egwin Leiber, the JM was a single-bay biplane powered by a 100 hp Argus As I water-cooled engine and made its debut in the summer of 1916. While under test on 16 August 1916, the JM attained altitudes of 3,280 ft (1 000 m) in 4 min, 6,560 ft (2 000 m) in 11 min, 9,840 ft (3 000 m) in 19 min and 10,825 ft (3 300 m) in 20 min. No further development was undertaken and no data are available.

The Germania JM fighter was powered by a 100 hp Argus As.I engine.
The Walfisch (whale) fuselage of the Germania JM failed to gain official acceptance for the fighter.

Germania JM prototype prepared for take off. Although the JM used the streamlined Walfisch shape in profile, it retained a rectangular fuselage cross-section. The production Roland C.II not only used the Walfisch profile, it used a more streamlined oval fuselage cross-section for reduced drag. Its increased speed was a major factor in its success.
