1:1 historical replica of the Albatros D.III
It was the main biplane fighter of the German Empire during the WWI, it was also widely used in the Austro-hungarian Empire. Also was operated by the air forces of the Ottoman Empire and Poland as well.
It was one of the best fighters of the WWI and one of the main reasons why germany gained overwhelming air superiority on April 1917, that went down in history as "Bloody April". It was a fragile aircraft, but their speed and heavy armament made it a fearsome enemy for Entente forces.
