For its time the Albatros D.I was a revolutionary design (the first aircraft were delivered to the front lines in September of 1916). The new aircraft received high ratings from combat pilots, but at the same time many problems were discovered. The upper wing was positioned too high, which hindered upward vision. Also the central struts were attached to the center of the top wing; this prevented normal positioning of the armament components. The Windhoff side radiators were a constant problem and caused engine overheating at the most inopportune times. In total, 50 aircraft of this type were delivered to the front. At the same time the Albatros company improved its construction of the D.I, a new version named the Albatros D.II soon replaced its predecessor in combat units.
