Junkers D.1 :
The revolutionary Junkers D.1 all metal monoplane fighter entered service just before the end of the First World War. The speed and climb performance were excellent and it was very well regarded by the Marine-Feld-Jasta pilots who flew it, although the revolutionary design was viewed with suspicion by many pilots more accustomed to traditional biplanes (a suspicion not really overcome well into the 1930s). How much action the Junkers D.1 saw before the Armistice is hotly debated but they were used to great effect by Kampfgeschwader Sachsenberg FA 416 in the post war fighting between German Freikorps and Bolshevik (and other) forces in the Baltic during 1919. Please be aware that much of what you may have read in some books and online about the development and specifications of the Junkers D.1 is now understood to be incorrect.
