L.F.G. Roland D.II “Haifisch”: Not only Fokker & Albatros.

L.F.G Roland D.II

The Haifisch was built using a formula similar to the used with the successful Roland C.II. The typical German construction ways and very “sharky” lines (Haifisch=Shark) are evident in this fast and sturdy fighter. In service the Roland D.II and IIa weren’t nevertheless too loved by their crews due to the heaviness of their controls…., something that you don’t definitely want on a fighter.

Notice that only one man is holding up its tail.
