A.E.G. G V
  Produced for longer-range work than the G IV, the prototype G V appeared in May 1918. None were completed in time for operational service. In 1919 some of these aircraft were used on the first German air line Deutsche Luftreederei, one machine flying from Berlin to Eskjo in Sweden in 4 hr. 7 min. Engines, two 260 h.p. Mercedes D IVa. Span, 27.24 m. (89 ft. 4 1/2 in.). Length, 10.8 m. (35 ft. 9 1/2 in.). Height, 4.5 m. (14 ft. 9 1/8 in.). Weights: Empty, 2,700 kg. (5,940 lb.). Loaded, 4,600 kg. (10,120 lb.). Speed, 145 km.hr. (90.625 m.p.h.). Climb, 1,000 m. (3,280 ft.) in 6 min. Duration, 5-6 hr. Armament, 2/3 manually operated machine-guns. 600 kg. (1,320 lb.) bombs.

AEG G V 625/18. The outrigger hinged aileron tab was attached by a rod to the aileron operating linkage. When the control surface was actuated, the tab moved in the opposite direction and partially balanced the aileron movement, making it easier to operate. It was thus not a true servo tab; its patented name was Flettner Hilfsruder (assisted rudder). It made the aircraft of the G class less tiring to fly and was in use in a variety of forms on the late models of twin-engined bombers. (British Air Ministry technical reports of 1919 indicate complete ignorance of the aerodynamic properties employed!)
A.Imrie - German Bombers /Arms & Armour/
There was disbelief about the relatively small numbers of machines in use when bombers of the Bogohl were handed over to the Allies after the war, and this is surely the highest tribute that could be paid to the devotion to duty of the Bogohl commanders and their crews. This AEG G V (635/18) is shown at Avere aerodrome after the Armistice with a Gotha G Vb in the background. All the machines at this aerodrome were of the latest types, having the aerodynamic refinements that have already been mentioned, but in a last defiant gesture all the bombers had been damaged in various ways to prevent them from flying again.
