The famous Fokker Eindecker was Germany's main fighter in early 1916, but the appearance of the allies DeHavilland DH2 and Nieuport 11 Bebe finished Germany's dominance in the sky. The excellent performance of the allied biplanes demanded that Germany address the performance of its own airplanes. A new plane type, the D-type (D for Doppeldecker, or biplane), soon began to arrive at army aerodromes in large quantities. Halberstadt and Fokker mainly manufactured these aircraft, however among these aircraft were the latest designs from Roland and Albatros. One of the best aircraft at this time was built by Albatros Gesellschaft fur Flugzeugunternehmungen GmbH Company; it received the official name Albatros D.I.

The first D.III fighters reached front during July of 1917, and soon the order was increased to 370 planes. Pilots reported that the D.III had excellent maneuverability, visibility, good climb, and speed. But the gun placement inside the fuselage was not to the pilots liking and the pilots recommended installing the weapon above the engine (at eye level).

The E.V was just in time for the Second Fighter Competition (July 1918). The Plane was regarded as the best of the rotary - engined competitors. Production started immediately, and in July the first production planes were delivered to the Front. The performance was impressive and pilots nicknamed the plane the "Flying Razor". But after two flying accidents on August 16 and 19, when a wing failed in flight, the type was immediately grounded for investigation. Production was stopped, and all previously made E.V's were returned to the Fokker factory. The wing structure was strengthened, and workers were more careful with assembly procedures. The aircraft returned to the front during October as the "Fokker D.VIII". The letter D, which used only for biplanes, indicated that the new wing was twice as strong. But the D.VIII came to late, because the war was ending. Only one victory, achieved by a pilot flying the E.V, had been confirmed; the victory awarded to Emil Rolff from Jasta 6 on August 17.

In June of 1918, during the Second Fighter Competition, Fokker Flugzeugwerke prepared some new planes. After the Competition, prototypes of the V9 and V11 received good flight reports from pilots. The German Idfiieg recommended building the V11 first (Later well known as Fokker D.VII). But the Fokker company made a decision to put the V9 into serial production because it had many common parts with the famous Dr.I - fuselage, tailplane unit, and undercarriage etc. The first aircraft, which received the name D.VI, left the factory in June. Fokker's D.VI was an interim construction between the Dr.I and the D.VII - from the D.VII would remain wing, but shorter in span. The Idflieg ordered 120 planes of this type, many Jastas received the D.VII at this time and its advantages were evident. The Fokker Company had a stock of 59 fuselages from the Dr.I, and started mass-production of new D.VII and the E.V.

The appearance of the Albatros D.III was closely influenced by the latest French designs, in particular Nieuport. Of course, Nieuport fighters were not true biplanes but "sesquiplanes" (ie. 1 wings). The lower wing was built around a single spar, and the chord of the lower wing was narrower in comparison with the upper wing. Robert Thelen and the Albatros designers completely rebuilt the wing cellule; all others elements of the Albatros D.II (fuselage, tail unit, undercarriage) were still in place. Only the interplane struts received a new configuration: parallel struts were replaced by V-struts.
