Hello Clint,

Many thanks for the id. I had looked through the German aircraft on "virtual aviation museum" but it did not list the Fokker DV. This site can be useful for some of the lesser known types, but is obviously not complete.

Regards, Ian

The Fokker DV wasn't particularly lesser known but its activities were to a great extent confined to training.

Only 216 Fokker D.Vs were built, and of them only a handful made it to the Western Front, where Jasta 6 operated some. It appeared at the same time as the more powerful, and better armed Albatros D.I and D.II, which were much more suitable aeroplanes for aerial combat, so the rest were relegated to training units.

Where they later proved very useful in converting pilots used to the inline engined Albatrosses back on to rotary engined aircraft prior to re equipping with Fokker Dr Is, DVIs and later DVIIIs
