Description Edit | History

The Albatros D.II was a German fighter aircraft used during World War I. After a successful combat career in the early Jagdstaffeln, it was gradually superseded by the Albatros D.III.

Albatros produced the D.II in response to pilot complaints about poor upward vision in the Albatros D.I. The solution was to reposition the upper wing 14 inches closer to the fuselage and stagger it forward slightly. Rearrangement of the wing struts also improved the forward view. The D.II otherwise retained the same fuselage, engine installation, and armament as the D.I. Basic performance was unchanged. Germany ordered an initial batch of 100 D.II aircraft in August 1916.

As Described In

Red Baron: The Albators D.II is a competent fighter. It's equipped with two Spandau machine guns.

Dawn Patrol: The powerful engine fitted to the Albatros enabled it to carry the load of twin-fixed Spandau manchine guns. The Albatros was therefore a heavy machine which resulted in it being less manoeuvrable than its contemporaries. Throughout the winter of 1916-17, the DI and DII were able to maintain aerial supremacy. Against the Albatros, the BE2c was almost defenseless and the numbers destroyed became a national scandal.
