L.V.G. C.V

In 1917 the LVG C.V made its appearance on the Western Front, and was in widespead use by the autumn of that year, also serving in Palestine. An excellent all-round aircraft, it was well able to defend itself. In 1918 it was joined by the C.VI, about 1000 examples of which were produced. This type had a number of modifications and improved visibility for the crew. The final variant was the C.VIII, only one of which was built.

Visit The Shuttleworth Collection and see the real thing flying.

Me too France. Wasn't as exciting as sinking the Bismarck 23 years later though. I don't know what's worse on this site. The Spam or the bullcrap stories.

WHERE I FIND OUT ANY MODEL OF A LVG IN ORDER TO DOWNLOAD AND FLY UNDER MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR OR COMBAT FLIGHT SIMULATOR?
THANK YOU.
