Edmund Rumpler founded Rumpler Luftfahrzeugbau in Berlin-Johannisthal in 1908 and initially built Taube designs but soon moved into biplane land planes and sea planes. A small venture into twin-engine bombers was made, but Idflieg wisely influenced the firm to concentrate on their excellent C.IV/VII derivatives instead.[1]

Production aircraft from the Great War or shortly thereafter include:
