Fokker V26 / V27 / V29 / V37

Specifications

1st Flight 1915

The Fokker V.27 was a German parasol-monoplane fighter prototype designed by Reinhold Platz and built by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke.

The V.27 was little more than an enlarged V.26 (prototype for the D.VIII) with a 145 kW (195 hp) Benz Bz.IIIb liquid-cooled inline engine.

Once again, Fokker pursued similar aircraft with both rotary and inline engines.

Fokker submitted the V.27 at the second fighter competition at Adlershof in May/June 1918.

The V.37 was a ground-attack variant of the V.27.

It was fitted with extensive armour plating to protect the pilot and engine.

Neither the V.27 nor the V.37 were placed in production.
