WW1 Fokker IRL

A Fokker Dr.I used during WW1

The Fokker Dr.I (Dreidecker, "triplane" in German) was a World War I fighter aircraft built by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke.

The Dr.I saw widespread service in the spring of 1918 gaining worldwide fame when it became the main fighter plane of Manfred von Richthofen, also known as The Red Baron, who gained his last 19 victories, before being killed on 21 April 1918.

Compared to the Albatros and Pfalz fighters, the Dr.I offered exceptional maneuverability and rate of climb but was significantly slower than a biplane in level flight or a dive. Though the ailerons were not very effective, the rudder and elevator controls were light and powerful. Rapid turns, especially to the right, were facilitated by the triplane's marked directional instability.

Today there are no known Fokker Dr.Is in existence today though its popularity has resulted in a large number of reproductions being created. [1]

The Dr.1 Scout is an aircraft featured in Battlefield 1. It can be seen in the trailer engaging other aircraft such as a Sopwith Camel through a canyon. It is in the game.

SingleplayerEdit

Fokker Dr.1 is main aircraft used by Luftstreitkräfte in Friends In High Places. German planes use red-white colour scheme with black Balkenkreuz cross symbols. Several Austro-Hungarian Fokkers can be seen in Avanti Savoia!, escorting Gotha G.IV bombers along with Albatros D.III fighters. They have light-olive colour scheme, similiar to game's Alpha. Three Fokker fighters can be seen used by Ottoman Air Force in Nothing Is Written, escorting Canavar train. They are painted light desert khaki colour.

MultiplayerEdit

Seating a single pilot, the Dr.I is armed with twin MG 08 machine guns or a TuF HMG|Tank und Flieger heavy machine gun. The ammunition has higher muzzle velocity and lower drag than on other vehicles, allowing for more precise aiming with little drop. It has great maneuverability and high speed, making it perfect for pursuing other aircraft. Its maneuverability also extends to stalls, allowing it to be turned more easily at low speeds or in freefall.

Certain vehicle packages provide alternative weapons such as Explosive Rockets for inflicting heavy damage on vehicles, or Explosive Darts for attacking ground troops. The Dr.I may also carry spotting flares or the ability to boot speed.

Aside from Emergency Repair on the Dogfighter build, the Fokker is not equipped with any other defensive gadgets. When pursued, it must rely on its mobility.

As of the alpha, its default paint is light green, with black/white stripes on its top wing and upper surfaces of its fuselage and tail. A special skin for the vehicle is available in the Red Baron Pack. In the beta, its default paint was yellow-brown. In the full game, they are painted dark-olive as a default colour scheme.

In the full game it is Luftwaffe's main fighter aircraft.
