Product ID: 80-3965
Skill level: 4

One of the most ingenious aircraft of the First World War, the Roland C.II featured a monocoque fuselage made from to angled layers of plywood. This load-bearing fuselage massively cut down on the number of struts and wires needed by the wings, reducing drag. This made it as fast if not faster than many existing fighters, and allowed it to carry bombs, a forward-firing gun, and an observer's machine gun.
