Rules pretty shamelessly plundered from dear old Dawn Patrol.

My boy has his first kill. Wife, who failed to take advantage of the climb rate of the Dr. I, was somewhat perforated and had to crash land, but survived the mission.

There are now two Dr. I and two Camels, as well as an RE8. There may be more serious action this weekend.

Hmmm, Sgt Miles Willingden ended a promising start to his RFC career this afternoon. No fun trying to handle enemy aircraft  that can substantially out-climb yours. Sad Score two-nil to Germany today.

In looking at the specifications of the two planes, the Dr1 approached near double the climb rate of the camel! That is alarming.
Apparently the design of the Dr1 was based on a captured Sopwith triplane (which the camel replaced)*. This is yet another fascination area of wargaming that if I had infinite lifetimes would also do.  My condolences to the Sargent's family.  Smiley

This time my SPAD is trying to intercept a Halberstadt observer aircraft and its DR I escort. A great leveller, I hope; triplane can't just zoom up into the clouds and leave the two-seater to the French wolf....
