Wings of Glory World War 1: Phonix D I (Urban)

AREWGF121B Wings of Glory World War 1: Phonix D I (Urban) published by Ares Games

The Phnix D.I was a singleseat biplane fighter with a stout and compact design, used by both branches of AustroHungarian air service. It was a fast airplane, wellarmed 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 photoreconnaissance aircraft.

Karl Urban flew in the Phnix D.I on the Piave Front. He became an ace fighting with this airplane, scoring his fifth victory on May, 19th 1918.
