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. It became famous as the aircraft in which Manfred von Richthofen, infamously known as The Red Baron, gained his last 19 victories, and in which he was 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. 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.

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.
