While Oesterreichische Flugzeugfabrik A.G. (Oeffag) may be more famous for their license-produced Albatros fighters, the also produced a line of C-class observation planes. The handsome Oeffag C.II was first accepted in October 1916 and they were produced in two Series of thirty-two aircraft each. The first series (Series 52) served with ten Fliks on the Russian front. The second series (Series 52.5) were delivered between February and June 1917, where they served in Russia, Romania, and Albania.[1]

The pilot's forward visibility was limited by the high-placed engine (moreso when the engine cowling was installed), and its speed and maneuverability were limited. The Oeffag C.II was usually used for close-range spotting while the longer-range flights were left to the more capable Brandenburg C.I.
