The AEG J.I was a biplane ground attack aircraft of 1917, an armored and more powerful version of the AEG C.IV reconnaissance aircraft.

Design and development

AEG J.I featured armour protection for the pilot and for the more powerful engine that was fitted to the heavier aircraft. Two Spandau-type machine guns were fitted to the floor of the observer's cockpit for ground targets. One Parabellum machine gun was provided in the typical rear-facing defensive position. Finally, armour plating was added around the engine and cockpits.

The J.Ia version featured aileron controls on the lower wings, in addition to the upper.
