Probably one of the best of the C types, DFW's
C.V embodied all of the neatness and efficiency of the C.IV that
had made its service debut early in 1916, but benefitted from
the greater power of a 200hp Benz Bz IV.This gave the machine
a top level speed of 155km/h at 1000m, while the C.V's operational
ceiling was 5000m. Built not just by DFW, but by
four other sub-contractors, the C.V was probably the best all-rounder
of the German two-seaters with just under 1,000
being in operation on every front at the end of September
1917. Armament comprised the standard fixed, forward-firing
and flexibly-mounted 7.92mm guns, plus light bombs.
