Response to Fokker G.I for Sweden
The Swedes were going to licence produce the G.1. There would have been 18 of the recce version and 77 of the bomber version. Fokker designed a "bathtub" observation cupola for the recce version and dive-brakes for the bomber.
The Danes also ordered the G.1; I have seen figures of 12 Fokker-built machines plus 12 each from the Army Workshops and SAI--but I have also seen figures of 9 from Fokker, 12 from the workshops and 24 from SAI.
Hungary also negotiated a licence, but I have no details. All in all Fokker would have done quite well with this design.
