Josef Jacobs was Germany’s joint 4th ranked flying Ace in World War I with 48 victories (equal with Werner Voss). After achieving his first two victories in the Fokker E.III, Jacobs transferred to Jasta 22, where he achieved three officially confirmed and many more unclaimed victories until August 1917, when he became commander of Jasta 7. He went on to fly the Fokker Dr. I rather successfully with Jasta 7 from early 1918 onwards, with his aircraft finished in a distinctive black paint scheme. His victory total continued to slowly rise and at 24 (achieved on July 19, 1918) he was awarded the coveted Pour le Mérite. Jacobs remained with Jasta 7 until armistice. His final victory total was 48 enemy aircraft and balloons.Detailed airframe with pilot figure
