Albatros fighters are an example of how fast air superiority came and went during World War I. Shortly after achieving a brief period of success, each series of Albatros was bested by its competition.
Over 1,500 Albatros fighter aircraft were deployed, often overwhelming technically superior enemy aircraft by their numbers alone. They experienced heavy losses, not only from engagements with enemy aircraft, but from failures due to a weakness in their lower wings.
