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.

  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.
