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.
