Fokker D.VII

The Fokker D. VII is considered the best fighter aircraft of World War I.

“First entering combat in May 1918, the Fokker D. VII quickly showed its superior performance over Allied fighters. With its high rate of climb, higher ceiling and excellent handling characteristics, German pilots scored a remarkable 565 victories over Allied aircraft during the month of August.” http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=319

This aircraft has the distinction of being the “only aircraft mentioned in the Armistice demands of November, 1918.” http://www.aerofile.info/fokkerd7/d7html/index.html
