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.

Loaded weight, 2,061 lb (935 kg).

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