The RFC just managed to squeeze in a narrow tactical victory over the German Imperial Air Service in the Dawn Patrol game of Knights of the Sky. Despite putting up a courageous fight the Germans suffered the loss of five aircraft, mostly due to structural wing failure and tail damage, while the RFC managed to get away with the loss of only two of their own machines.
The Pfalz DIII continued to live down to it’s reputation for structural strength but the new Hannover CIII proved to be a war winning machine, with great promise for future use into 1918. Despite tricky handling characteristics the Sopwith Camels did very well, while the good old Brisfit proved its worth time and again, thanks to some fancy shooting by the rear gunner. A good game!
