Fokker D.5

Approved version of the D.3

Further developed and approved version of the Fokker D.3. with a 100 hp engine.

The design of this Fokker fighter was completed by the later famous Reinhold Platz.

The D.5. owed much to its precursors, but had a sweptback upper wing, and a cleanly cowled engine.

The armament existed of one machinegun. It was one of the most manouverable aircrafts of its time.

This Oberursul engine however was not strong enough to fight in 1916 in the westfront (the Albatros fighters were much superior), so the 216 build aircrafts were used for training of German pilots.
