The Pfalz monoplanes were licence-built copies and variants of the Morane-Saulnier G/H or Type L, armed with a synchronized IMG-08 machine gun (or two, in the case of the E.IV). While similar to the Fokker Eindeckers, they were not well-appreciated, in no small part because they appeared several months after the Fokkers. Pfalz aeroplanes tended to be assigned to Bavarian pilots, and they made due until better planes came along.
The Pfalz E.I was somewhat smaller than its brothers, with 14 sq. m. wings and the 80hp Oberursel U.0 engine. Roughly 45 were built.
