PFALZ D XIV Germany

  The D XIV, which underwent Typen-Prufung on 15 May 1918, was very similar to its immediate predecessor, but featured wings of greater span and area, a deeper fuselage, an enlarged vertical fin and a high-compression Benz Bz IVu six-cylinder water-cooled engine. Structurally similar to preceding Pfalz fighters and carrying the standard twin-gun armament, the D XIV participated in the second D-type Competition, but did not demonstrate any appreciable advance over the D XII, development being discontinued.
