About this creation
Specs
Junkers J9
Country of origin: Germany
Type: fighter
Wingspan:29 feet
Length:23 feet
Armament: 2x .31 caliber (7.92mm) Spandau machine guns
Top speed: 115-120 mph.


Backstory: The J9 was designed and built in 1918 and entered service in the last days of the first world war. It was revolutionary since it was the first all metal monoplane fighter aircraft in the world. But WWI ended in November of 1918, meaning that only 40 were built. It was slowly forgotten by all. But without it, history could have been drastically different.

By the way, one does still exist in a museum somewhere. It belonged to a german naval squadron until 1919. the one here is painted in black but in reality it would have been grey and green. WWI aircraft of any type are very, very rare, and many have been lost to history. Many of the ones at air shows are replicas but if you happen to see a real one, remember it, for you may never see another real one again.
