Albatros D IX

Unlike previous Albatros fighters, the D.IX featured a slab-sided, flat-bottomed fuselage. The wings were similar to those of the D.VII, as were also the tail surfaces, power was provided by a 180hp Daimler D IlIa engine, and armament consisted of the usual twin synchronised 7.92mm LMG 08/15 machine guns. The sole prototype appeared early in 1918, but performance proved disappointing and development was discontinued.
