Along with the beginning of production of the Albatros D III plane under the license at the OAW plant, the Albatros Flugzeugwerke started to work on further modernization of this fighter. A new prototype, the D.IV appeared; however, due to poor performance this project was soon abandoned. The next version, the D.V, had the same wing shape as the D.lll, but the design of the fuselage had been completely revised: all of its cross-sections were oval, unlike the flat-sided fuselage of the aircraft's predecessors. Thus, one of the most elegant fighters ever built was introduced. Apart from the new fuselage, the D.V had a rudder of rounded shape, similar to the D.lll OAW, and the underfin had a more raked appearance. The aileron controls on the D.V passed through the upper wing; like the British S.E.5, this aircraft had a headrest just behind the cockpit. In comparison with the D.lll, the wing gap had been reduced from 1.54 m to 1.47 m.
