To exemplify the future potential of computational spectroscopy with the Breit-Pauli R-matrix method, complemented by related atomic structure calculations, we present a fairly complete and large-scale set of mainly ab initio transition probabilities for a complex atomic system. Level energies and fine-structure transition probabilities for Fe V are presented in a comprehensive manner with spectroscopic identifications. We should expect these data to be particularly useful for the calculation of monochromatic opacities and in the analysis of spectra from astrophysical and laboratory sources where non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) atomic models with many excited levels are needed.
All data tables will be electronically available from the CDS archives, and via ftp from the first author at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank Dr. Werner Eissner for helpful comments and general assistance with the BPRM codes.

The computational work was carried out on the Cray T94 at the Ohio Supercomputer Center in Columbus, Ohio. The collaboration between Columbus and Meudon benefitted from a visit to the DAEC by AKP, with support from the Université Paris 7.
