The UFAG C.I was a two–seat biplane that served the Austrian Air Service in many roles. First released in April 1918 and intended to update or replace earlier observation airplanes, its excellent speed and handling saw the UFAG C.I used for everything from escorting observation airplanes to ground attack to light bombing. The fastest two–seater produced by the Central Powers, its Hungarian manufacturer could not keep up with demands and only about 170 had been delivered when the war ended.
In an attempt to improve UFAG’s firepower against enemy fighters, a second forward–firing machine gun was experimentally added to this airplane. This model has special cards to reflect the upgrade.
