Fokker V 34
Virtually a revised B.M.W.-engined D VII, the V 34 featured the same type empennage as the V 33; the engine was also housed in a neater cowling with a more ovoid radiator. Engine, 185 h.p. B.M.W. IIIa.
Fokker V 36
With no record of V 35, the next prototype to appear was the V 36 - yet another D VII derivative. Stemming from the V 34, a return to the original D VII style fin and rudder may be noted. A second V 36 prototype was constructed, and this machine had no centre-section cut-out, and a fuel tank was installed in the axle fairing. Engine, 185 h.p. B.M.W. IIIa. Span, 8.935 m. (28 ft. 3 7/8 in.). Length, 6.46 m. (21 ft. 2 3/8 in.). Height, 3.045 m. (9 ft. 11 7/8 in.). Area, 17.6 sq.m. (190.08 sq.ft.). Weights: Empty, 637 kg. (1,401 lb.). Loaded, 871 kg. (1,916 lb.). Climb, 1,000 m. (3,280 ft.) in 1.75 min., 6,000 m. (19,680 ft.) in 18.25 min. Armament, twin fixed Spandau machine-guns.

FOKKER V 34 & V 36 Germany
The V 34 and V 36 single-seat fighters were the final developments of the basic D VII undertaken during World War I, and differed essentially in their vertical tail surfaces. Both were powered by the 185 hp BMW IIIa six-cylinder water-cooled engine, both featured an oval frontal radiator and both were sent to Adlershof on 10 October 1918 to participate in the third D-type competition. Apart from the vertical tail (which was essentially similar to that of the D VII), the V 36 differed from the V 34 in having one major innovation: the main fuel tank was transferred from the fuselage to the undercarriage axle fairing. Further development of these D VII derivatives terminated with the end of World War I. The following data are specifically applicable to the V 36 armed with two synchronised LMG 08/15 machine guns.
