G.V
Role Bomber
National origin  German Empire
Manufacturer AEG
Primary user Luftstreitkräfte
Developed from AEG G.IV

The AEG G.V was a biplane bomber aircraft of World War I, a further refinement of the AEG G.IV. The type saw limited production before the Armistice, and never entered operational service. It featured a 600 kg (1,320 lb) bombload.

After the war, several were converted into 6-passenger airliners. It was the only large German World War I aircraft to see commercial duties in any significant capacity. Initially, passengers sat in an open cockpit, but a Limousine version was soon developed. AEG attached a cabin fairing to enclose the passenger area and outfitted the nose with a hinged door for baggage. Finally, a toilet was provided aft of the passenger cabin.
