In February 1917, the British Sopwith triplane began to appear over the Western Front. The Sopwith proved itself superior to the German Albatros biplane fighters. Anthony Fokker responded by his first triplane fighting machine, the Fokker Dr.1 which developed from the V-6 prototypes. Compared to the Albatros and Pfalz fighters, the Dr.1 offered exceptional maneuverability but was considerably slower than contemporary Allied fighters. After the initial success of the Fokker Dr.1, Fokker proposed a five wings V-8 prototype that intended to prove his concept, more wings would be much faster. The V-8 had an unstaggered equi-span triplane wing arrangement mounted at the nose and a biplane wing arrangement immediately aft of the pilot's cockpit and approximately two-and-a-half times the wing chord behind the triplane structure. It could be described both as a quintuplane and a tandem-wing aircraft. Anthony Fokker made an abbreviated flight in October 1917, some modifications subsequently being made before a further brief flight was made two weeks later, development then being abandoned. No flight test data for this type were recorded.
