"Dog Fighting"

Dog Fighting first appeared in W.W.1 shortly after the invention of the airplane. It was a component of every major war.


Airplanes were an essential part of W.W.1 and turned the tides of many battles. Ultimately without airplanes the allied nations might not have come out victorious.
