The Junkers CL.I, a.k.a. the J.10, was a two-seater produced in the latter half of 1918. Only forty-seven were completed and not all of them saw service. Like the hulking Junkers J.I before it, the duralumin-clad wings and fuselage surfaces gave it tremendous strength, and it was fast and maneuverable. It also saw service in Finland and at least one of the Baltic States after the war. [4] It served in both Poland and in the Russian units opposing Germany in the Baltic states.[3]
