The Pfalz D.XV was a development of the Pfalz D.XII using the BMW engine and interplane bracing similar to the Fokker D.VII. It was tested in November and probably would have been suited for large-scale production had the Armistice not been signed. The design was unusual in one respect: the lower wing sat low enough to completely clear the fuselage. [2]
