The two top Wow model planes of 1918 are Fokker DVII and Sopwith Snipe. I am all with you on the superb DVII, it had a great impact on the the air war from may 1918 to the armistice and if Jasta 11 got their a few days earlier the "red baron" might had survived the war.
But the Snipe only reached the front the 23 october, and I know that Jasta Boelke fought it in the battle of the 4th november, jasta Bs last battle, Bolle shot down 4 of totaly 5 doened, not bad with fuel for 1 1/2 hour. And I know it was in battle the 27th october also, and probably some more but really, it was used for a month, and in battle for about 2 weeks.
Even Odd planes like Oswald Boelkes Fokker DIII was used a lot more, or Max immelmanns Fokker EIV. It was a very fine plane but it should really be released as an oddity with planes like Fokker EV/DVIII instead. The opponent the DVII usually fought was the Spad XIII, camels and SE5a. Of course we should get cards for it but releasing the model so early when a lot of great and widely used planes like the SE5 and the Bristol fighter isn't released seems just wrong to me.
There are of course many cool odder planes that was produced that would be nice models, like my favorite the Fokker DVI, Fokker EIV and many others, and a pack with those would have been nice too. But not so early when we still miss so many good and planes that was used in great numbers.
So what is the reason behind it? Game balance? Or is it Andrea or Piers favorite plane?
