Fokker Eindecker WW1 Fighter

The Fokker Eindecker was a truly decisive aircraft and in many ways the first true fighter plane, the engine was nothing special being a copy of the French Monosoupape rotary engine, the aircrafts performance was not really outstanding, indeed a good pilot was required to even fly the Eindecker relatively straight. So why was the period following the Fokker Eindecker's introduction to become known as the "Fokker Scourge" by the Allied air-forces? The main answer was that the Fokker Eindecker was the first aircraft to be fitted with a synchronised interrupter gear which allowed it's machine guns to fire through the propeller arc, the pilot aimed the aircraft not the gun!
