Établissements Letord of Meudon et Lyon-Villeurbanne built a series of largely-forgotten three-seat reconnaissance-bombers that gave good service in 1917 and 1918.[1]

Production aircraft from the Great War or shortly thereafter include:


  1. The Letord 3 was intended as a night-bomber escort and had 2×200hp Hispano engines and a cannon.[2]
  2. The Letord 7 was a two-seat version of the Letord 5 using two 275hp engines.[2]
  3. The Letord 9 was a three-seater with 2×240hp Lorraine-Dietrich engines.[2]
