Nieuport 16 Airplane Packs:

The Nieuport 16 was an evolution of the Nieuport 11, reinforced and modified to fit a more powerful engine with a top speed of over 100 mph. It was armed with a single Lewis machine gun on its upper wing and, when used in balloon busting, with two sets of Le Prieur rockets.

Each of these WW1 Wings of Glory® Airplane Packs includes a ready–to–play Nieuport 16 model, painted and assembled, 100% compatible with any other WW1 Wings of Glory game product. In each pack you will find all you need to play with the airplane: a special base, a flying stand, and a deck of Maneuver and skill cards.

Nieuport 16 (Navarre)
Jean Navarre, the Sentinel of Verdun, the first French pilot to shoot down two enemy aircrafts in a day and the first to be officially declared an ace. He was made a Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur for his secret special missions and his aerial victories.

Nieuport 16 (Escadrille Lafayette)
Aéronautique Militaire unit N 124 – best known as “Escadrille La Fayette,” in honor of the French hero of the American Revolutionary War – was composed mostly of American volunteers who soon became a great inspiration to many aspiring pilots.

Nieuport 16 (De Guibert)
Henri De Guibert earned his flight license as a civilian, and once enlisted he became a French aviation pilot, and scored his first victory in his Nieuport 16 on July 21, 1916. After 19 years of service, he was honored as Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur.

 

Drachen Special Packs:

The Caquot M / Ae 800 Drachen Special Pack is the perfect addition to the WW1 Wings of Glory game line! This pack brings the excitement of the “Knights of the Air” era to your tabletop, allowing you to experience the thrill of commanding your own observation balloon in the midst of the battles of World War I.

As the guardians of the skies, observation balloons played a critical role in the struggle for aerial and ground supremacy during the First World War. With their ability to support troops, gather intelligence, and assist with artillery fire, these massive Drachens were heavily defended by anti-aircraft guns, groups of machine guns, and patrolling fighter aircraft. But the brave balloon busters, equipped with special weapons like Le Prieur rockets, were up for the challenge of taking them down.

Now, you can recreate these intense and thrilling battles with the Caquot M / Ae 800 Drachen Special Pack. This pack features a beautifully pre-painted model, scenarios, ground units, new rules, new abilities, and even a decal sheet for customization. You can play a variety of missions, including defending your balloon from enemy attacks or attempting to take down an enemy balloon yourself.

This is not a complete game.
To play, you must own a WW1 Rules and Accessories Pack (or other compatible WW1 airplane combat rules set) .
