The LVG C.V, along with the DFW C.V and Rumpler C.IV, was one of the more important aircraft of the German Air Service in WWI. The LVG C.V was a two-seat aircraft, designed for reconnaissance, artillery spotting, and occasionally ground attack. It was sturdy, maneuverable, able to defend itself, and well liked by its crews. By the autumn of 1917 the LVG C.V was coming into widespread use alongside the contemporary DFW two-seater. A total of 1250 were ordered from Luft Verkehrs Gesellschaft (aka "LVG") Many saw postwar use with various nations. The Polish Army utilized some 150 captured examples after the war. Several examples (collectively numbering thirty in all) saw service with Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and the Russian Empire. LVG C.V The model, textures. panel and air files are by Captain Kurt.
