The Albatros D.III was in service for a year between late 1916 to late 1917 although some remained in service through 1918 as well. It would be the best aircraft that Germany would have available until the Albatros D.V, Fokker Dr. 1, and Fokker D.VII replaced it. The Austro-Hungarian Air Service would fly a number as well.
In 1916 Allied aircraft were generally superior to what Germany was flying at the time and the creation of the Albatros D.II and D.III changed that. It would quickly dominate the skies and was responsible for causing havoc during the period known as 'Bloody April'.
Despite some wing related failure issues the D.III was a great aircraft to fly and was known for its maneuverability and rate of climb. Over 2000 aircraft would end up being built and during 1917 almost every major ace pilot would fly it or the D.V version. These pilots include: Manfred von Richthofen, Ernst Udet, Erich Löwenhardt, Kurt Wolff, and Karl Emil Schäfer.
