Fokker D.VII   4"   5"

The Fokker D VII was a single-seat fighter/scout developed in Germany in 1918. The D VII could reach a maximum speed of 124 mph and weighed only 1,620 pounds empty (1,940 pounds was its maximum take-off weight). The Fokker D VII was armed with two fixed forward-firing 7.92 mm LMG 08/15 machine-guns and was an integral part of the German air force in World War I. This particular aircraft features artwork of the "Seven Swabians" (from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale) on each side of the fuselage. The pilot, Gefreiter Wilhelm Scheutzel, of Jasta 65 scored his one and only kill during the war when he downed a DH4 on 13 August 1918.

Fokker D.VII

Designed by Reinhold Platz to participate in Germany's first single-seat fighter competition, the D.VII prototype (V.11) was first flown in December 1917. Constructed of fabric-covered wire-braced welded steel tubing and powered by an innovative 160 horsepower engine, the D.VII's greatest strength was its maneuverability at high altitudes. D.VII aircrews were equipped with two synchronized 7.92mm machine guns, with which they achieved some remarkable kill-to-loss ratios. By the end of WWI, the Fokker D.VII was regarded as the best German fighter in service, so good, in fact, that one of the Allies' Armistice terms was that all Fokker D.VII's be surrendered.
