BRANDENBURG L 16 German

  A single-seat equi-span fighter triplane, developed for the Austro-Hungarian K.u.k. Luftfahrttruppen, with aerofoil-section I-type interplane bracing struts, the L 16 was powered by a 185 hp Austro-Daimler six-cylinder water-cooled engine and was intended to carry an armament of two synchronised machine guns. Various coolant radiator arrangements were evaluated on the single prototype built, but the fighter offered insufficient promise to warrant series production and development was abandoned.

Max speed, 118 mph (190 km/h).
Empty weight, 1,631 lb (740 kg).
Loaded weight, 2,061 lb (935 kg).
Span, 29 ft 6 1/3 in (9,00 m).
Length, 23 ft 7 7/8 in (7,21 m).
Height, 12 ft 1 2/3 in (3,70 m).
Wing area, 360.59 sq ft (33,5 m2).

Type L 16
  
  Brandenburg was not immune to the triplane craze and when specifications of a captured Sopwith Triplane were received from Flars a single-seat triplane fighter was soon designed around a 200-hp Daimler engine. Of large dimensions, the L 16 was completed by December 1917. It was a neat looking triplane with equi-span wings. The I-type interplane struts had an airfoil section. Like so many other triplane prototypes it remained a single example. It was sent to Lloyd where it was evaluated with the serial 40.15. Details of its first flights are unknown. By March 1918 it was hangared at the Phonix facilities at Aspern. Flown only occasionally, the triplane was obsolescent and remained with Phonix till the war's end.

For initial trials the L16 prototype fighter had two large radiators fitted on the centre section struts.

A single radiator is mounted in front of the middle wing at the fuselage. The middle wing was mounted on the struts independent of the fuselage.

Photographed at Aspern in 1918, the L 16 has minor modifications to the rudder. The original photograph was printed on bubble paper. (AHT AL0579-067)

Evaluated by the Austro-Hungarian air arm in 1917, the L16 triplane lacked promise.
