Albatros D.Va PNP
Used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during WWI, the Albatros D.Va was the final development of the Albatros D.I family and the last Albatros fighter to see operational service. With more than 1600 D.Va aircraft built before early 1918 when production was halted, the D.V was in continual service until the end of the war.
Flown by the famous Manfred von Richthofen otherwise known as the "Red Baron" the Albatros D.Va was his greatest weapon when it came to landing a
victory against the enemy. Deemed to be the leading ace of WW1, Manfred von Richthofen was killed in combat at the age of 26 in 1918.
Modern thinking is divided as to whether or not he was fatally shot in aerial combat by the Canadian pilot Arthur Roy Brown or from ground fire by an Australian machine gun unit.
