Models of the Fokker E.V aircraft

modele fokker e.vFokker E.V- vintage German fighter aircraft from the end of the First World War.

After removing the problems, there was not enough time to put the plane into the fight. The machines already produced and went to Polish aviation and took part in the battles for the Polish city of Lvov. There also, Stefan Stec won the first victory over the Ukrainian Nieuport piloted by the Austrian ace Rudorfer.
