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.
