It's interesting that the British have access to both the Pup and the Triplane already in the summer of 1916. I remember running into Tripes in the other DID while I was still flying Aviatiks in mid 1916 - not much fun, though my observer did manage to shoot one of them down!
In real life at that time, there were only one or two Pups and Tripes in France for testing purposes. They didn't become operational in large numbers until much later in the year, and the Tripe only in early 1917.
Excellent reports and great pics everybody! I've been taking a break from DID flying because of excessive heat, but I should get back to business next week as the weather cools down.
