The Fokker Dr.I (Dreidecker, "triplane" in German), often known simply as the Fokker Triplane, 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 gained his last 19 victories, and in which he was killed on 21 April 1918.

times by the RAF ( hey, they were a bunch of rowdy young men)! He can travel an extra space in non-combat ( the flying circus was largely supported by trains that brought them to the front). The Red Baron can attack sea, land, and sub units along with with a target selection of 1 ( the Red Baron flew many planes, including fighter bombers and torpedo bombers). Opinions rule: the Red Baron flew many spotting missions for artillery, if he attacks with artillery they get a target selection of 1. Opinions rule: the Red Baron flew many spotting missions for artillery, if The baron's plane was painted red because his tactics were to attack his opponents with the sun at his back (the red color made it difficult to see the plane coming out of the sun) thereby surprising his opponents. So maybe a sneak attack or on a 1-2 get a sneak attack.
- The Red Baron attacks as a fighter at a 3 (he was a great pilot. He defends regularly because the flying circus was caught off guard manytimes by the RAF ( hey, they were a bunch of rowdy young men)!
- What if one of the tri-planes was designated as the Red Baron, on the first round of combat if that plane misses it gets to roll again (one time). Could do similar Aces for other nations as well.
- First round of combat the Fokker Dr.1 scores double hits?
- A two-step rule for the Fokker Dr.I: a) +1 interception, and b) if an interception kill is scored, allow a second round of interception. This would recognize its superior maneuverability. For the deuce-and-a-half, either a) no terrain movement penalty; or b) +1 to movement range. Either would pay homage to its power and versatility.
