Fokker Dr 1 Triplane

Fokker Dr 1 Triplane

Designed by Reinhold Platz, the Dr1 was a direct attempt to copy the successful Sopwith Triplane. Armed with two forward firing Spandau machine guns, it was highly manoeuvrable, and was a favourite mount of a number of German aces such as Werner Voss and the legendary Manfred von Richthofen. It entered service in 1917 and Von Richthofen's Jasta was the first to be equipped with an eventual total of 320 being built.
