    Description

    The year is 1918. All across Europe, men face a last-ditch battle in the mud of the trenches, and for the first time in history, a new battlefield is open: the sky. While colourful biplanes gallantly duel each other as true "knights of the air," colossal “giants of the sky” also take flight, bringing destruction to distant cities and over the battlefield.

    Wings of Glory is probably the most popular World War One aerial combat tabletop game in the world, with a great collection of pre-painted, ready-to-play model airplanes. Thanks to its elegant and innovative game system, it is possible to start playing minutes after opening the rules. Each airplane has a unique, historically accurate, maneuver deck, yet it is easy to play.

    The German Zeppelin Staaken R.VI was the largest airplane ever to fight during World War 1, with a wingspan more than 30 feet larger than a WW2 B-17 Flying Fortress.

    This leviathan of the air was used in the last months of the war in pivotal historical events, such as the raids over London in 1918.

    The wingspan of the R.VI model is about 30 cm (1 foot!). The model will be a complete, ready to play miniature in 1/144 scale, painted and assembled.

    The model also includes everything you need to include it in your Wings of Glory aerial battles - maneuver deck, airplane card, crew management card and damage counters, new rules, and the special gaming base.
