The first three aircraft of the AGO (Apparatebau GmbH Oschersleben) C
series were twin boom observation biplane aircraft of the First World War.
The unique design of the C series featured a four wheel under carriage, its
crew of two, consisting of a pilot and observer, carried in the center
aircraft pod. Two tail booms made room for a pusher prop at the rear
of the center pod. In addition to landing gear, the aircraft could also
be equipped with floats.
The AGO C series aircraft had a relatively long range and were reported as stable to fly.
Some 25 C series twin boom aircraft were produced.
