Junkers J 5

The Junkers J 5 was a designation assigned to several fighter aircraft designs.


In early 1917, Junkers developed at least two cantilever wing monoplane fighter aircraft designs based on the J4.[1]

J 5I

The first design, known as the J 5I, was to have a Siemens Sh2 or Oberursel UR.II engine behind the cockpit.


The second design was to have the engine in front of the pilot.

J 5III (J 6)

A third design was also developed under the designation J 5III (later J 6) with a Mercedes D.IIIa and a parasol wing.
