The Albatros C.VII was a German military reconnaissance aircraft which saw service during World War I. It was a revised and re-engined development of the C.V that had proved disappointing in service.
The C.VII dispensed with the earlier type's unreliable Mercedes D.IV and also with the fixes that had been made to accommodate that powerplant, returning to the original C.V/16 design. Refinements were also made to the control surfaces, the overall effect being an aircraft of excellent handling qualities, and which soon made up the bulk of German reconnaissance aircraft, with some 350 in service at any one time.
