Wings of Glory World War 1: Albatros DIII (Frommherz)

Wings of Glory World War 1: Albatros DIII (Frommherz)

The Albatros D.III was the continuation of the line of shark shaped fighters that began with the D.I in the fall of 1916. Among the improvements was adopting the sesquiplane design from the Nieuport fighters, gaining climb and visibility, but weakening the structure. Still, the D.III dominated the skies and was the main killer during Bloody April. The Austrians built the D.III under license and actually managed to improve on the original. There were still some in combat at the Armistice.

Hermann Frommherz went from 2-seater pilot to the famous Jasta 2, where his first fighter was the Blau Maus. He survived World War I with 32 victories.
