Fokker D.VII Finland 1

By Claveworks
13 Favourites
The Fokker D.VII entered service with the Luftstreitkrafte in 1918 and proved itself to be a highly successful fighter in combat, and over 3,000 were built.

The D.VII arrived too late for Manfred von Richthofen, but other pilots such as Goring and Lowenhart used it to score up many victories.

The D.VII was armed with 2 x 7.92mm machine guns.

This example is an Fokker D.VII of the Finnish Air Force 1920.

Oh come now, of all the greats to rack up their scores in this bird you go with Goring? Haha. I'd have gone with Udet, me. That said I really do love your series, so nice to see these birds in their lesser known liveries.

Haha no worries, Göring was pretty universally despised by everyone but himself during WWI. And you're welcome :)
