Letord produced a family of planes which were all very similar but varied in role and engines. The first being the reconnaissance Let 1 with two Hispano-Suiza 8A engines. This was followed by the Let 2 which was a reconnaissance model powered by H.S. 8Ba engines. The Let 3 was a bomber version of the earlier models and the Let 4, flying in 1916, was a reconnaissance type detailed below. The Let 5 was a bomber version of the Let 4 and the Let 6 was an escort fighter with Hispano-Siuza 8Be engines and featuring a 37 mm Hotchkiss gun. The Let 7 was another reconnaissance model based on the Let 6.
