I recently read that the Hannover CV-Type (not the CL) was in use by Flieger Abteilungs in 1918. can anyone tell me of any units identified as having the late-model Hannover. Likewise who flew the CLIV. I saw the photograph of one brought down in August 1918, but the unit isn't stated.

There was no Hannover C.V, it was a CL.V It did not see operational service to my knowledge, it appearred to late in the war. The Halb. Cl.IV served with Schlasta 4,5,13 and 15 and possibly other Schlasta.

There was, however, a Halberstadt C.V. It was part of a new generation of smaller, faster, high-altitude C-types produced in an attempt to counter the overwhelming numbers of Entente aircraft with which the recon crews were forced to contend.

The Hannover CL.V was the only one of the Hannover CL types to not have the biplane tail unit. I believe one of the prototypes did, but the production versions and those used in Norway post-war had the conventional single-surface tail surfaces. Apparently there is at least one remaining fuselage in Norway of one of these. (Read that years ago in an old Windsock feature on the type)

You are correct , there was a Halb. C.V, however, I would not characterize the Halb. C.V as small, it had a wing span of 44'8¾" which was larger than the DH.4 with 42'4½". The Halb.C.V was considerably shorter, at 22'8½", to DH.4 at 30'2¼".

thanks, chaps!

does anyone know details of the Halberstadt CLIV brought down on August 23, 1918 (by AA fire)?

also when were the Hannover CL types first identified as such? i have Mannock and Compston credited with one in January 1918, but i am sure that McCudden's claim the following month was still being referred to as an "Albatros 2-seater". so who decided Mannock and co had knocked down a Hannover?

Since it was a ground attack machine, perhaps it was brought down on the Alled side of the lines.

23August18. Halberstadt CL.IV 4675/18 POW at Chipilly. Schlasta 13, Uffz. Ackenhausen, Pilot, & Flg. Amzehnhoff, Gunner. And they weren't brought down by AA fire. They shot off their own propeller at 11.10 hours. Enough detail?
