PFALZ E V Germany

  Although, by early 1916, the more rugged and manoeuvrable biplane configuration was demonstrating a clear superiority over the monoplane in the fighting role, the Pfalz Flugzeug-Werke persisted with the latter and developed the E V and E VI. The E V, which completed its Typen-Prufung in July 1916, employed an essentially similar airframe to that of the E IV, this being mated with a 105 hp Daimler D I six-cylinder water-cooled engine, armament reverting to a single LMG 08/15 machine gun. Twenty E Vs were built, but the advent of more efficient and more powerful biplanes rendered the E V obsolescent prior to delivery and only three saw frontline service.

Max speed, 102 mph (165 km/h).
Endurance, 2.0 hrs.
Empty weight, 1,124 lb (510 kg).
Loaded weight, 1,534 lb (696 kg).
Dimensions as for E IV.

J.Herris - Development of German Warplanes in WWI /Centennial Perspective/
The Pfalz E.V was the only E-type with a water-cooled engine, a 100hp Mercedes D.I. It was faster than the more powerful E.IV but mounted only one gun. Superior biplane fighters were already arriving at the Front and only 20 were built. The pre-war design used by Pfalz was not stressed for combat maneuvers and after some structural failures, all Pfalz E-types were withdrawn from the front.
The E V was a Daimler-powered derivative of the E IV, but rendered obsolescent by biplanes.
