DFW C.V

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.
