The L.V.G. C.V was one of the great multi-purpose German two-seaters of 1917-1918, along with the D.F.W. C.V and Rumpler C.IV. Arriving at the front in late summer of 1917, production of this well-liked plane ramped up quickly, and it was soon the second-most common two-seater at the front behind the D.F.W. It wasn't until mid-1918 when it was supplanted by the L.V.G. C.VI, and post-war they were taken up by Poland, Russian, and the Baltic Republics. Probably 1250 C.V's were built.
