The UFAG 60.03, prototype for proposed production as the UFAG C.II, was a reconnaissance aircraft of the Austro-Hungarian air forces (Luftstreitskrafte), in the First World War.[1] The C.II fared well in the 1918 C-class trials and production was planned but abandoned with the armistice in November 1918. The sole UFAG 60.03 was offered for sale to the Czecho-Slovakian government in 1920.[1]
