[WWI] Junkers CL.I
Junkers CL.I
As early as 1910, Dr. Hugo Junkers was convinced of the effectiveness of the monoplane design, and produced a number of planes around this layout. All of these Junkers planes featured aluminum skins, earning them nicknames like the “Tin Donkey” and “Flying Tank.”
Late in the war, the Idfleig requested a design for a ground attack plane. Based on the earlier J7 single-seat fighter, the J8 featured an extended fuselage to allow room for a rear gunner, while retaining the monoplane layout and all-metal construction. To speed production, Junkers was required to work with Fokker, and this design was redesignated the J10. It was accepted into service as the CL.I. A total of 47 aircraft were delivered before the end of the war.
The CL.I burns 6.7 gallons of aviation fuel per hour at routine usage. The plane has a historical endurance of 2 hours. A full load of fuel and ammo costs $18.

Design Notes:
Historical wing area was 253 sf. The weight, HPs and cost of the wings were halved to decrease design weight; the weight was then increased 2% to the historical. The MG load outs are a guess. Design aSpeed was 111 mph. Performance calculations were based on historical values for wing area and loaded weight. Fuel capacity was based on the plane's historical endurance and the design fuel consumption.

The CLS.I (or J11) (1918) were 3 planes equipped with floats for use by the German navy.
