1:1 historical replica of the Albatros D.III

History

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.

Features

  • All characteristics, handling and appearance were recreated at detail.
  • Gun recoil and engine shake.
  • Two MG15/08, perfectly recreated (speed, appearance, ROF...)
  • Custom landing gear
  • Realistic pilot view

Appearance

Unit: Jagdstaffel 2 (Jasta Boelcke)
Date: November 1917
Pilot: 2nd Lt. Hermann Frommherz (and probably also flown by Werner Voss)
Nickname: "Die Blaue Maus"

Extra Screenshots

Note: Be careful when you try to land, the plane must have some momentum... the best speed to perform a landing is about 100mph, the optimum throttle is about 85%... as soon as you touch the ground cut off the power.

    A pretty nice build, clearly much effort went into this one. I would throw down the gauntlet, though, and challenge you to start building built up wings, as that’s the only thing this build lacks.
