The Lloyd C.II was based on the pre-war C.I airplane with a slightly shorter wingspan and the addition of a machine gun on a circular mount for the observer. The C.II featured a plywood body and swept-back, tapered wings and was used for reconnaissance and light bombing throughout the war.
Two other versions were built in small numbers, the C.III and the C.IV had bigger engines and slight modifications to the wings.
Early in the war, planes of Austria-Hungary carried red and white stipes on their wing tips. The German cross was adopted for Austro-Hungarian planes in 1916; some planes carried both markings.
