The Albatros D.III was a biplane fighter aircraft used by the Imperial German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) and the Austro-Hungarian Air Service (Luftfahrtruppen) during World War I. The D.III was flown by many top German aces, including Wilhelm Frankl, Erich Löwenhardt, Manfred von Richthofen, Karl Emil Schäfer, Ernst Udet, and Kurt Wolff. It was the preeminent fighter during the period of German aerial dominance known as "Bloody April" 1917.
The Albatros D.III is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1 as Austria-Hungary's and Ottoman Empire's fighter aircraft. Several Austro-Hungarian Albatros fighters appear in Singleplayer level Avanti Savoia!, escorting Gotha G.IV bombers, ordered to kill Matteo's teammates. At the end of O la Vittoria, after blowing a mountain, one damaged Albatros crashes into Luca's AA gun, nearly killing him. In Multiplayer, Albatros D.III appears as main fighter of Austria-Hungary and Ottoman Empire.
