Winner of the April 1918 fighter competition, the Fokker D.VIII monoplane was delayed by production problems. Only thirty six of them entered service during the last weeks of the war. Equipped with an underpowered engine, the D.VIII was nevertheless an excellent fighter eagerly received by the German Air Service. Dubbed the "Flying Razor" by Allied pilots, it had the distinction of scoring the last aerial victory of the war.
