The Albatros D.Va was a German fighter aircraft used during World War I. It featured a streamlined semi-monocoque fuselage with an almost fully-enclosed 180-horsepower in-line Mercedes engine. Approximately 4,800 Albatros fighters of all types were built during World War I. Many of the highest-scoring German ace pilots achieved a majority of their victories while flying Albatros aircraft. Highlighted in this image is the rudder of the airplane.
