Caught unawares the Nieuport is firmly in the gun-sights of the marauding Fokker Dr1. This time the Nieuport has so very few options and can only hope for poor gunnery and/or lack of ammo on the part of the Triplane. Despite all the myth and legend about honour and the code of air combat the most successful, and longest lived, pilots consistently stalked their opponents and then shot them from the rear at close range!! WW1 was not a comfortable environment for fighter pilots.
