The Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. The D.V was the final development of the Albatros D.I family, and the last Albatros fighter to see operational service. Despite its well-known shortcomings and general obsolescence, approximately 900 D.V and 1,612 D.Va aircraft were built before production halted in early 1918. The D.Va continued in operational service until the end of the war.
Albatros fighter in Southern VictoryEdit
In late 1916, Albatros was able to convey plans for its latest two-decker to the United States via submersible. Wright immediately got to work incorporating design elements of the Albatros fighter into its own new planes.
