During 1916 France's Nieuport fighters ended the dominance of Germany's Fokker Monoplanes and reversed the balance of air supremacy over the Western Front in favor of the Allies. As a result, Germany encouraged it's aircraft makers to produce copies of the Nieuport, of which one of the most blatant examples was the Siemens-Schuckert D-1. It looked almost exactly like the Nierport 17. However, by the time the D-1 became available it had already been rendered obsolete by a much better German fighter, the Albatros D-1. As a result only 95 of these airplanes were produced, and they were relegated to training duties.
