Tripe, Tripehound, or officially the Sopwith Triplane, this three winged scout is now released to owners of Flying Circus Vol 2. It comes with a small patch that still features several dozen updates for the rest of the series. Let’s have a look!
The last aircraft for Vol 2!
Flying Circus Vol 2’s aircraft set is now complete. That feels a bit funny to realize as we’ve just recently seen the release of the Handley Page and Gotha G.V too. Now, it’s the Sopwith Triplane’s turn in the limelight and it marks the end of the aircraft development for this second instalment. The map and the career mode is still to come but this is still a key milestone.
I’m looking forward to the Sopwith Triplane. Although it had only a brief 6-month time to shine, it made an impact on the war and lead German aircraft makers and Fokker in particular to develop what would become the iconic Fokker Dr I.
The patch also comes sporting some upgrades to the core of the sim including improved visualization of medium sized buildings from long distances, improvements to tank gun firing visuals, AI pilots will switch off their nav lights if engaged during landing, redrawn gauges and placards for several German aircraft, and improved map loading times.
