Albatros Dr I

No less than eleven manufacturers produced triplane, single seat fighters in the summer of 1917, including Albatros, whose Dr I simply married a new triplane wing to an otherwise standard DV airframe.
When triplanes seemed to hold the most promise as fighters a number of designs were put forward. This Albalros DrI was built in 1917 - and as can be clearly seen it was essentially an Albatros DV with an extra wing added.


This machine, built in 1917, was virtually a D V fitted with three sets of wings to assess the triplane layout. All wings were of parallel chord with ailerons, connected by link struts, at all tips. It would seem no advantage was gained with this layout, and the type was not proceeded with. Engine, 160 h.p. Mercedes D III. Span, 8.7 m. (28 ft. 6 5/8 in.). Length, 7.3 m. (23 ft. 11 1/2 in.). Height, 2.42 m. (7 ft 11 1/4 in.). Armament, twin Spandau machine-guns.

"Not only the machine above me is better, but the man sitting in it can do more than I." Ernst Udet, describing an encounter with Guynemer in May 1917.......

On 25th of July, around 19:50, Lothar Freiherr von Richthofen shot down a Camel somewhere over Fismes, France. It was his 30th victory! I have no idea if this is anywhere near to how it could look but surely this report inspired me to create this image, LvR getting his 30th victory.
Lothar gets level again while the poor chap in the Camel, badly wounded, turns his last pirouette trying to control his burning aircraft. The pilot of the Camel will remain unidentified, giving his life just as "No 30".

Just keep learning settings and testing rendering techniques. This is another one of these test renderings, tried to recreate a well known photo of WWI ace pilot Werner Voss in front of his Fokker Dr.1 F.I Triplane. I know itīs not that accurate, itīs the feeling I was after.

Another test rendering with the wonderful model of Pavel Zoch, this time with the colors of Lothat von Richthofen, the brother of the famous "Red Baron". The background comes from rOEN911 [link] and itīs only a small part of the original, which looks fantastic! Thanks mate! Iīm not really happy with this rendering, I really have to tweak the materials on this quite a lot but Iīm more concentrated at the moment on learning the software than tweaking details, so itīs really just a rough "artwork". Not to forget, the Camel comes from "Rise of Flight".

A British Airco D.H. 2 destroys a German observation balloon but has paid for it. The aircraft has also been destroyed by a German anti-aircraft gun called a "flaming onion" which was a 37 mm revolving-barrel anti-aircraft gun used by the German army during World War I, the name referring to both the gun, and especially the flares it fired. The term could also be applied to any sort of anti-aircraft fire that used a visible tracer.

The actual weapon was a Gatling type, smooth bore, short barreled automatic revolver called a 'lichtspucker' (light spitter) that was designed to fire flares at low velocity in rapid sequence across a battle area. This gun had five barrels and could launch a 37 mm artillery shell about five thousand feet (1500 m). To maximize the chance of a strike, all five rounds were discharged as rapidly as possible, giving the 'string of flaming onions' effect. Because most other rounds were fired slowly due to the nature of anti-aircraft artillery at the time, this gun's rapid rate of fire left many fliers thinking that the rounds were attached to a string and they feared being shredded by it.

Credits: The aircraft, balloon and groundwork is based on a flight from Rise of Flight, the sky is from my collections of mayyang.com skies. All editing done with GIMP.
Thanks for Looking.

The Sopwith F.1 Camel entered service in 1917 and was one of the most successful Allied fighter of WW1. It was agile and fast, but prone to spinning, but despite that it went on to claim over 1,200 combat victories.

By 1918 it was being replaced by more advanced aircraft, but continued in use in the ground attack role until the end of the war.

The Camel was flown by the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Navy Air Service, and also the RAF in 1918 when it was formed from the two services. Ten other countries also flew the Camel.

The Camel was armed with 2 x 7.7mm machine guns.

This example is an F.I of the Estonian Navy, circa 1920.

The Mark 1 Tank was the first in the world, it entered service with the British Army in WW1. The Mark IV had better armour than the Mark 1, and was made in two versions: The 'Male' had 2 x 6 pounder cannon and 4 x Hotchkiss machine guns. The 'Female' had 4 x Vickers machine guns and 2 x Hotchkiss machine guns. Both had a crew of 8, and a top speed of around 6mph. The 'Male' weighed 28 tons, and the 'Female' 27 tons.

This example is a Female of the Tank Corps, circa 1917.

A Spitfire drops into position to help a P-51 get a wounded B-24 home.

This is a rework of and older picture and has brought the Spitfire in closer to the B-24. A few other tweaks here and there as well.

Although C.200 suffered from underpowered engine and armaments, it showed a excellent manoeuvrability that suits a taste of Italian pilots.
I simply like its funny shape.
