Ritter der Lüfte

Knight of the Skies: Simulates duels between reckless pilots in flying boxes made of plywood, cloth and wire. Fokker triplane, Sopwith Camel, SPAD XIII and other famous aircraft are available to the two to six pilots. Different performance characteristics, aerodynamic characteristics and armament of the machines make every air fight a real shaking party. Critical hits, material fatigue, jamming and pilot errors often lead to the abrupt end of a patrol flight. Anyone who finds the way to the home airstrip after a successful mission and safely touches down the perforated aircraft can count oneself lucky. Emergency landings with smoking and stuttering engines, shredded surfaces and critical damage often only succeed for experienced pilots.
