Thread: albatros d.iii

  1. #1

    Default albatros d.iii

    Here's a question regarding the D.III and the game. I recently lost out on a Hautzmayer (love the colour scheme) and am now chasing a Brumowski. Just discovered they flew for Austria-Hungary.

    Now here's the question. Do the maneouvre decks differentiate between the German variant and the Austria-Hungarian varient which was faster/tougher (?) If not I can continue chasing Brumowski and hope another Hautzmeyer (did I mention I loved the colour scheme?) comes up somewhere.

    Mention this because I want my German Eagles to be flying German planes. If the decks are the same, then sod historic accuracy, I like the planes

    ARES did not make the stats for the Austrian Alb D.IIIs different from the German ones. So game-wise they are treated the same. The unofficial committee has a nice list that does give you the different values. In the files 'HERE' you can fine the list.

    I made up some A and B decks for my Austrians. Early in the war we use the Albatros stats. Later, we use the unofficial Oeffag 153 or Oeffag 253 stats. You can use the same model, just need some maneuver decks.

    Good luck with the Brumowski Iain (and the Hautzmeyer). I have been looking out for a Brumowski for years. I did repaint one of the more available models and stick a few paper skulls on it but not quite the same

    By the way, I think there is a Siemens Schuckert model with skulls on it too if you are hankering after the macabre. Unlike the Albatros they fly really well too. Formidable even.

    Tusekine has some shapeways Austrian that he painted up. One was a Brumowski. He was selling all his stuff. You may want to message him and see if he has any left.

    just seem the Brumowsi on E-bay go above what I was prepared to pay. It was a nice idea but not a Must Have plane. I'm sure I've seen somewhere a mainly red Albatros but with a lot of grey at the front. Typically can't find it. Ah well back to dreams of Hautzmayers
