Fokker V.1
Role Fighter
Manufacturer Fokker-Flugzeugwerke
Designed by Reinhold Platz

The Fokker V.1 was a small sesquiplane fighter prototype built in Germany during World War I. The V did not stand for versuchs (experimental) in the case of the V.1, but rather verspannungslos, or cantilever. The airplane had a circular fuselage structure and plywood covered wings. The V.1 was powered by a 75 kW (100 hp) Oberusel rotary. The airplane was so small it was nicknamed "Floh" or flea.
