Ago C.V

  The next Ago design was the compact C.V two- seater powered by the 160 hp Mercedes D.III.
  The C.V looked significantly different from the earlier C.IV and was more compact because it was designed as a CL-type. The single-bay design used N-struts and the wing planform was nearly rectangular with ailerons on all four wings. The angle of incidence of the wingtips was washed out so the ailerons would stall last, preserving the pilot's aileron control after a stall. The C.V represented a major effort to improve flight characteristics after the serious problems with the earlier Ago C.IV.
  Not only was the Ago C.V designed for improved flight characteristics, but it was well-streamlined.
  The compact, single-bay Ago C.V was designed for the CL role but no production was undertaken.
