The Fokker D.VII was a German World War I fighter aircraft. Approximately 1,700 D.VII aircraft were produced in the summer and autumn of 1918. In service, the D.VII quickly proved itself to be a formidable aircraft. The armistice which ended the war required Germany to surrender all D.VIIs to the Allies at the conclusion of hostilities. Surviving aircraft saw continued widespread service with many other countries in the years after World War I.
