Overview
 
The Albatros D.III (Oeffag) series 253 was the last modification of the famous WWI Austro-Hungarian fighter. After successful testing of the 225 h.p. Austro-Daimler engine it was immediately installed in the late 153 series airframe. In May 1918 the Oeffag factory received an order to supply 230 aircraft of the 253 series. Because construction was unchanged apart from the new engine installation, new fighters were delivered to the combat units Flik 61 and Flik 63 in the same month. Up to October 1918, the Oeffag factory manufactured 201 fighters. Many pilots, who had flown other new aircraft, regarded the Oeffag series 253 as the best and finest fighter of all.
