In April 1918, the new Fokker D.VII fighters were delivered to the most experienced hunting units (Jastas). This plane was quite different among other fighters of the time, especially noted for its excellent flight performance, strong construction, and high maneuverability. British and French pilots who met the new fighter in the sky over the Western Front gave it the nickname "Square-Nose". Dogfighting with "Square Nose" planes was fatal for allied planes in a majority of the cases. The OAW factory had the capacity to build more aircraft than the Albatros and Fokker plants put together.
