This is the Labourdette-Halbronn double hull triplane torpedo bomber of French origin 1918-1920. About the reference . This machine is almost always referenced as a Labourdette-Halbronn triplane (look at the RAF Museum Thesaurus). The only reference of a designation is in Davilla French aircraft of the first World War, where two variants are given.
   The H.T.1 is described as the original (prototype) machine which was followed in 1919/1920 by two examples of the H.T.2 allegedly a more powerful version of this machine.
   The H.T.1 had two Hispano engines of 200 hp each. The H.T.2 had two appreciably more powerful engines, Lorraine rated at 350 hp each.
   To continue on the codes H.T., they stood for Halbronn and Tord. Robert Halbronn was the designer of the machine and Tord (no first name) was responsible for the engines.

A Labourdette-Halbronn triplane flying boat. Designed as a torpedo bomber, the aircraft had twin hulls, and the pilot's cockpit was in a central nacelle. Gunners with flexible machine guns were situated in the front of each hull. Ailerons were fitted to the top and middle wings. Power was from two 200 hp Hispano-Suiza engines (for the H.T.1); these were replaced by two 350 hp Lorraine engines in the H.T.2. The Armistice terminated further development and production.
