Von Richtofen-Class Triplane

design by Idiot/Savant

Another purpose-built fighter, the Von Richtofen uses a lighter airframe and triplane configuration to produce an aircraft that is even faster and more maneuverable than the Stringbag. However, it lacks a bomb-rack, and is thus less useful in the ground-attack role. The plane was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
