The Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. The D.V was the last Albatros fighter to see operational service, and it was subject to serious problem of structure. The improved D.Va version, with a reinforced wing structure and more resistant fuselage, was widely used by the Luftstreitkräfte and 1,612 D.Va aircrafts were built before production halted in early 1918. The D.Va continued in operational service until the end of the war.
