    The Albatros D.V entered service with the Luftstreitkrafte in 1917 and despite structural problems with the design 900 D.V and 1,600 D.Va were built.

    The D.V was heavily criticised by Manfred von Richthofen who preferred the older version, the D.III. But the problems with the Fokker Dr.I and Pfalz D.III meant there was little choice but to keep the Albatros as a front-line fighter.

    The D.V was armed with 2 x 7.92mm machine guns.

    This example is an Albatros D.Va of Jasta 1 circa 1918.

    Excellent as always Clave
    I'm always intrigued as to the individuality and brightness of the German WW1 aircraft colour schemes.
