One final attempt to extend the life of the Fokker Eindeckers was made by installing the two-row Oberursel U.III rotary engine and twin machine guns, resulting in the Fokker E.IV. While the increased firepower was appreciated, the increased weight made the plane even less nimble, and some E.IV pilots even reverted to the Fokker E.III. Forty to fifty were built, with deliveries starting in mid-1916, by which time they were already outclassed by more maneuverable Entente fighters.
