As it became apparent that two-seaters would need to be able to defend themselves, a gun turret was added to the A.E.G. B.II to create the AEG C.I. It was one of the first C-types at the front, serving from June 1915 through April 1916, and it continued on as a trainer afterwards. Around seventy were built. The factory designation of the plane was the KZ9.
