The Albatros J.I was a German ground-attack single-engine biplane aircraft of World War I.

Design and development

It was developed using the wings and tail of the C.XII reconnaissance aircraft and adding a new, armoured fuselage and heavier armament. Operationally, a success, the main drawback of the type was that the armour was found to be inadequate for its role.
