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.

Unlike the other planes of this type, the Pfalz E.V featured an inline engine: the 100hp Mercedes D.I. About twenty were built before the order for fifty of them was cancelled. [1]
