Hi all,


I know there's probably no hope in hell of any new skins getting approved in game but just in case....


I made this fictional skin from a Dan San Abbott drawing from 2008. There are several things wrong with the drawing but I like the skin that's why I'm submitting for approval in FICTIONAL SKINS.


1.The date on the drawing is wrong. It should say Feb. 1918 not 1917.


2.Frommherz left Jasta B for six months to instruct at Jastaschule, from October1917 till May 1918. The switch to black and white tails happened in December 1918, month afer Frommherz left, when Walter von B├╝low-Bothkamp became Staffelfuhrer (source: Dan_San_Abbott smiley.gif ). Month after that, Jasta B started receiving first Dr.Is and in February it was fully re-equipped in them, although some Albatrosen may have been kept. 18th May, when Frommhertz came back, Jasta B was flying Dr.Is for months and servicable Albatrosen were likely sent to other units as replacements. Frommherz stayed with Jasta B for two months, then replaced Herman Goering as new leader of Jasta 27. I'm not sure how long Jasta B kept their Albatrosen, but from February they were flying Dr.Is and in June/July they were likely already switching to D.VIIs. 

Rough timeline:
Spring 1917. Jasta 2 uses white tail squadron markings. Frommherz flies his famous blue Albatros D.III, "Blaue Maus".


3. I changed the pink to purple because modern believe is that pink was incorrect AFAIK.



Long and short of it, this plane most likely did not exist.







Thanks Trupo for the help.
