Though the first Lloyd C.II's started to arrive at the front in August 1915, production delays pushed the bulk of them back to Spring-Summer 1916, primarily due to shortages of the 145hp Hiero engine. They served with almost every Flik on the Italian and Russian fronts, with 70 produced overall.[5] After they were replaced at the front, they remained in the training role as late as autumn 1918.
