Which do you think is the best fighter planes during the first world I? I am not sure with the Jasta, if you have something their in your mind can you share it out?
Not for sure, but the tri-wing Fokker, when flown by the Baron Von Richthofen, was pretty good. The French Neiuport and British Sopwith Camel models were also to be feared.
Great Topic...but I'd have to brush up on Air battles of WW I to enter into it.
At a recent R/C airplane meet there was a life-size flying doghouse with Snoopy as the pilot. It looked neat flying around the field while being attacked by the Red Baron!
Actually? That is very cool! I would'a got'ta kick out of that.
They also had a flying push lawn mower and a full size witch on a broomstick. The witch was especially cool looking as it flew around the field.
I think the Tri-Wing was the best if I had to pick one, because from what I understand it had a lot of maneuverability. Also, this reminds me of playing the game called "Red Baron" over a decade ago, which took place during WWI.
The best German fighter, and the most advanced, technically, was the Fokker D-VII. It's performance, on only about 180 hp., was as good as any other fighter. It was the only one that the Allies insisted should be turned over to them at the armistice; all others were destroyed. There were several allied fighters which were comparable in performance to the D-VII, but they used about 400 hp to get it. The Germans, foolishly, built only 6-cyl in-line engines and copies of French rotary engines (as in the Fokker triplane), which were limited by lack of suitable lubricating oil (castor oil).
