After the end of World War I, the slump in demand for aircraft forced Dewoitine to close his company and move to Switzerland. He designed the D.27 the following year, 66 of which were purchased by the Swiss Air Force. It was also licence-built in Romania and Yugoslavia. Seven strengthened versions, designated the D.53, served experimentally with the French Escadrille 7C1, flying from the aircraft carrier Béarn.
