History:
The Fokker D. VII is a World War I fighter aircraft manufactured by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke.

In late 1917, Fokker built experimental V.11 biplane. Fokker had submitted the V.11 along with several other prototypes. In May 1918, the D.VII entered squadron service with Jasta 10 and the type quickly proved to have many important advantages over the Albatros and Pfalz scouts and could dive without any fear of structural failure. Production D.VII aircraft initially used the 180 hp Mercedes D. IIIa, followed by the high-compression 200 hp Mercedes D.IIIa. The first D.VII with the new BMW engine first entered service with Jasta 11 in late June 1918, though production of the BMW engine was very limited and it was continued to be produced with the 180 hp Mercedes D. IIIa until the end of the war.

After World War I, other countries used the D.VII operationally and it served in the Polish, Dutch, Swiss and Belgian air forces. The D.VII has proven to be popular that Fokker sold large number of D.VII airframes that he had smuggled into the Netherlands after the Armistice. By 1929, the Alfred Comte company manufactured eight new D.VII fighters under license for the Swiss Fliegertruppe. D.VII was preserved and other Allied countries acquired the aircraft. In 1918, one war prize was captured when it was accidentally landed at a small American airstrip near Verdun, France.
