Product Code:

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.
