The Rumpler C.X, given the company designation Rumpler 8C 14, was a German two-seater, developed from the earlier Rumpler 8C 13 prototype by Rumpler in early 1918. The prototype had a similar wing cellule to the C.VII, and was initially powered by a 260 hp (194 kW) Mercedes D.IVa engine, later powered by a 240 hp (179 kW) Maybach Mb.IVa engines).
