Albatros D.III: First World War Aircraft

The Albatros D.III was the most successful of the Albatros V-strut fighters. The wing and strut arrangement was consciously copied from that of captured French Nieuport fighters. The D.III was produced in huge numbers in 1917 and used by virtually all the German fighter Jastas at one point. Camouflaged wing surfaces were fairly standard for the D.III before highly personalized colour schemes became the norm for German fighter aircraft.
