By James F. Miller,Adam Tooby,Henry Morshead

In 1916 German aerial domination, as soon as held sway via rotary-engined Fokker and Pfalz E-type wing-warping monoplanes, have been misplaced to the extra nimble French Nieuports and British DH 2s which not just out-flew the German opponents yet have been found in higher numbers. Born-from-experience calls from German fighter pilots asked that, instead of compete with the maneuverability of those adversaries, new single-engine machines might be built with larger horsepower engines and armed with instead of the then-standard unmarried laptop gun. The Robert Thelen-led Albatros layout bureau started working on what grew to become the Albatros D.I and D.II and via April 1916, they'd constructed a graceful but rugged desktop that featured the standard Albatros semi-monocoque wood development and hired a 160hp Mercedes D.III engine with strength adequate to equip the aeroplane with forward-firing computer weapons. In all, 500 D.IIIs and 840 D.III(OAW)s have been produced and observed heavy carrier all through 1917.
