Lohner / Ufag C.1

In 1915 the Lohner B.VII biplane was presented, It was a plane conceived to carry out unarmed reconnaissance missions, but after verifying that occasionally the plane was able to carry some armament, like 80 kg of bombs and a machine gun, it was decided to build a new version prepared to perform armed reconnaissance and light bombing missions. This new armed model was designated as C.1 and mounted a more powerful Austro Daimler engine and a machine gun that was handled by the observer. The C.1 variant was manufactured by Lohner and UFAG companies to speed up production. Both planes stopped being manufactured in 1917 after just over 100 units put into service. All C.1 airplanes were decomissioned after a short period of service in favour of more efective planes.
