The Fokker V.17 and its derivatives were a series of experimental monoplane Fighter aircraft produced by the Dutch aircraft company Fokker in the 1910s.

V.17, was a shoulder cantilever-winged monoplane with plywood covering. 82 kW (110 hp) Oberursel engine.

V.20, was a cantilever mid-winged fighter with plywood covering and was powered by a 119 kW (160 hp) Mercedes D IIIa engine. It was similar to the V.17.

V.21 was much like the V.20 except the wings were tapered.

V.23 was related to the V.20 and V.21. It was evaluated by the German Army and rejected due to poor forward visibility (presumably on landing).
