AGO C.I

                            

1st Flight 1915

 The AGO C.I was a First World War German pusher reconnaissance biplane that used a pod-and-boom configuration.

The crew and pusher engine shared a central nacelle, and the twin booms carried the tail and the four-wheeled landing gear. The observer sat at the nose and was armed with a machine-gun.

A single example was fitted with floats for coastal patrol duties for the Imperial German Navy (designation C.I-W).
