I was looking through my HBG minis for planes I could proxy, and remembered I had five T.Vs and 10 D. XXIs, and neither sees a lot of use on when I'm playing Axis and Allies (being neutrals), and I noticed the forum does not appear to have any cards for them either.
The Fokker D. XXI was a fighter produced by the Netherlands, and used by them during the German invasion, as well as by Finland during the Winter and Continuation Wars. In Finland there were multiple aces who used D. XXIs, and they managed to match themselves against Bf 109s in Dutch Service, shooting down 1 Bf 109 and damaging two others. (
The Fokker T.V was designed as an air "cruiser," meant to attack large bomber formations. A squadron of them shot down 33 Ju-52s during the invasion of the Netherlands, though the bomber was rather flammable, and suffered from technical problems.

Thank you for these. I am fond of the D. XXI. I hadn't heard of the T.V before. A strange plane. Bomber/interceptor seems a contradiction at first. Though we have the Ju-88, A-20/P-70, the Blenheim, and the Mosquito, though all were mostly night fighters/interceptors.
