Is it a turnfighter or just a fast rotary with good climbing? I've read that she can't outturn the Albatros (D3 / D.Va), so I tend to believe she is just a fast rotary (dog) with good climbing.

 

What do you guys think?

It's a bit fiddly as I remember from the few times I've flown it.

Somewhere between a Camel and an N17 I'd say.

 

It can be effective in a dogfight I believe, but the lack of vision is a real problem - which maybe makes it more suitable for Spad style attacks.

I also imagined that she was a turnfighter, but I got in doubt because she apparently can't outturn the Albies, which might place her past the Fokker D8.

I'd classify it as just plain shitty. Sometimes the pontoon version with the balloon guns can be fun.

Not if Baron von Zlatan happens to be above you in it it isn't.

What lack of vision? Can't you look 360 if you stretch your neck? Also, it can carry an overwing. I should fly it more!

I think that may be a case of Pilot, more than plane...if you tossed a penny out the side of your plane von Zlatan could put a bullet through it as it fell!
