Since the Kotter-Kschischang formulation for error and erasure correction for random networks over subspaces, there exists a considerable body of work related to the construction of subspace codes. Etzion and Vardy gave the first bounds on the size of non-constant dimension subspace codes, also termed projective space codes, and gave an example of a (5, 3) projective space code which was claimed to achieve the upper bound. We show that the Etzion-Vardy code is not constructible by the existing multi-level non-constant dimension code constructions based on Ferrers-diagram rank-metric (FDRM) codes. Moreover, we construct a modified code based on the Etzion-Vardy code which achieves the bound, by introducing minimal changes in the structure of the existing code. We also conjecture that no other bound-achieving code can be constructed for these parameters under the restriction of these minimal changes.
