The Phönix D.I was a single-seat biplane fighter with a stout and compact design, used by both branches of Austro-Hungarian air service. It was a fast airplane, well-armed and offering good vision, but it was quite difficult to maneuver and had a poor climb rate. Employed first as an escort fighter and fighter, in spite of structural weaknesses, it was favorably received by many pilots, who found it stable, robust, and easy to fly. The D.I was also used effectively as a photo-reconnaissance aircraft.
These miniatures are designed to be used with the popular air combat game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia. Each WWII Wings of Glory Airplane Pack is a ready-to-play model, painted and assembled, and 100% compatible with any other WWI Wings of Glory game product. In each pack you will find all you need to play with the airplane: a special base with gaming stats, four altitude flying stands, and a specific deck of maneuver cards.
This is not a complete game. You must own a WWI Wings of Glory: Rules and Accessories Pack or WWI Wings of Glory: Duel Pack to play.
