Siemens-Schuckert D.I

First flight: 1916
Introduced: 1916
Primary user: Luftstreitkrx¤fte
Number built: 95
Developed from: Nieuport 17

The Siemens-Schuckert D.I was a German single-seat fighter built by Siemens-Schukert Werke.

A number of captured Nieuport 17 fighters were given to German aircraft manufacturers to study, the Siemens-Schukert Werke produced the D.I based on the captured fighter. The D.I was a biplane powered by 110 hp (82 kW) Siemens-Halske Sh.I rotary engine. An order for 150 aircraft for the Imperial German Army Air Service was placed, but these were delayed by late delivery of the complicated geared engine , so that the aircraft was outclassed in combat by newer Allied aircraft when delivered. Only 95 aircraft were produced, most of which were used for training .

A single D.Ia was produced with a greater wing area and more powerful engine but was not ordered into production. The development continued through a prototype D.II to the D.III.
