The Fokker D.XXI was a Dutch fighter, designed in 1935 for use by the
FokkerD-XXI Classic Airframe Ca-94-401
Royal Netherlands East Indies Army Air Force. As such, it was designed as a cheap and small, but rugged aircraft, which had respectable performance for its time. It was also one of the few aircraft that could follow a Stuka into its dive. Entering operational use in the early years of World War II, it provided yeoman service for both the Luchtvaartafdeling (Dutch Army Aviation Group) and the Finnish Air Force, and a few were built by the Carmoli factory before the factory fell into Nationalist hands during the Spanish Civil War.

Fokker D.XXI in The War That Came EarlyEdit

The Fokker was the only fighter of the Dutch to give the Luftwaffe a challenge during the German invasion of the Netherlands in the final weeks of 1938. Although still able the to put up a decent fight, there just weren't enough avalable to the Dutch in order to mount a proper defence.

They were still in service in early 1941, when the Japanese invaded the Dutch East Indies. Seeing one in Surabaya, Pete McGill thought is looked hotter than the US peashooter, but not by much. Still, he was happier to see it than a zero.
