The Pfalz Dr.I was based on the earlier Pfalz D.VII prototype refitted in triplane style. Performance was not substantially better than the Fokker Dr.I and the counter-rotating Siemens-Halske engine was always troublesome in the early days, so production was limited. Though there are differing reports on the number constructed, ten seems to be the best guess.
