Austro-Hungarian produced a chain of terrible fighter kinds reminiscent of the Phönix D I and Hansa-Brandenburg D I through the early phases of the warfare, and it was once no longer until eventually licence-built examples of the battle-proven Albatros and D II and D III started to succeed in Fliegerkompagnien, or Fliks, in may perhaps 1917 that the fortunes of pilots started to search for. not like the German-built Albatrosen, which firstly suffered wing mess ups in flight, the Oeffag plane have been way more strong than German D IIs and D IIIs. additionally they displayed stronger pace, climb, manoeuvrability and infinitely more secure flight features. Such attributes have been used to the whole by means of all of the prime Austro-Hungarian aces, together with Brumowski, Arigi, Kiss and Linke-Crawford, who fought Italian pilots in Hanriots and SPADs, in addition to British pilots in Camels and Bristol opponents. The exploits of Austro-Hungarian aces have been firstly delivered to the eye of English-speaking readers within the Eighties during the pioneering paintings of Martin O'Connor. an extra 30 years of extra study has allowed Paolo Varriale to combine and replace his paintings, rectifying a few inaccuracies and including new info and a lot of unpublished photos. The cautious crosschecking of Allied assets with Austrian and German files shape the foundation for a close reconstruction of the dogfights fought by way of the prime aces.
