Albatros D.1 WW1 Fighter

The Albatros D.1 was designed by Robert Thelen, it was introduced at a time when the Allied pilots and their Nieuport 11 and Airco D.H.2 fighters had command of the sky, the Albatros D.I and D.II were destined to reverse this situation once they had replaced the Fokker Eindecker, this was a result of it's superior firepower and speed rather than manoeuvrability. Only 50 Albatros D.I fighters were made as pilots soon complained of serious "blind spots" created by the wings position, this was quickly addressed and the modified airframe was designated the Albatros D.II.
