Hans Udet Jasta 37 "Black Bird" v1.3

Hans Udet Jasta 37 "Black Bird" v1.3



This skin, v 1.3, depicts the camo and markings on a black Albatros D.Va flown by Lt Hans Udet, then JAFU, Jasta 37, operating out of Wynghene Aerodrome in early 1918. Udet flew many aircraft, and this appears to be one of at least three D.Va types he used at Jasta 37. I relied most heavily on an excellent profile by R.N. Pearson as well as other material.

You may want to visit Mr. Pearsons web site:





The markings on the upper and lower wings are revised in v1.3 to conform with images depicted by R. N. Pearson and Osprey, copies of which just became available to me. The change from v1.2 are slight, but those of us who are compulsive about such details will prefer this one. I also had valuable help and support from Barkhorn1x. Of course, I began this project with the general release skins provided by TK and Third Wire. The result you see is entirely my own, and my time machine is no longer operational. This is an interpretation, a well-grounded interpretation, but certainly a mix of accuracy and flaws.


Have fun with it. I’d appreciate any comments, especially with links to source material. At the time of this release no information was available as to the serial number for this plane. If you have such info, please pass it along.


Just drop the folder in your AlbatrosD5a folder and select Hans Udet Shawartz in the loadout screen. The name reads Hans Udet Schwartz because this is the black bird (Schwarz is German for black). There is another J 37 Hans Udet D.Va skin, depicting the natural wood fuselage aircraft that will be released along with this version. A third silver version may be released later.


There is no need to edit the AlbD5a ini.


Please no distribution or republication of any part of these files. There is a lot of unique detail that took a lot a time to research, compile and work into the skin. For that reason, these parts are not available for further use.
