J.Herris - Development of German Warplanes in WWI /Centennial Perspective/
The Otto C.I was one of the few German pusher designs. This was because the Otto company was located in Munich, Bavaria, and the Bavarian air service, which purchased Otto aircraft, initially favored pusher aircraft, primarily due to the unobstructed forward visibility for the crew for observation, photography, and bombing. The German air service strongly preferred tractor aircraft for their aerodynamic efficiency and, later, better defensive capability, and most production German two-seaters were tractor designs. Engines used included the 160 hp Mercedes, 150 hp Benz, and 200 hp Rapp. Despite its higher power rating, the Rapp was unpopular because it was not nearly as reliable as the Mercedes or Benz.
