The design that would become the Fokker G-1 was very unusual at that time. The air forces of the thirties ordered for each task a specifically designed aircraft. The specifications that dictated the emergence of the typical Fokker G-1, however, were quite different in nature, something that had not seen before.


Who has't had discussions about which plane was the best plane in the second world war. And who did not regret starting that discussion. Believe it or not, even discussions how good or bad the Fokker G-1 was, are like that.
