This was designed by the same man who later designed the Hanriot HD-1, which proved to be a much more efficacious fighter.

Designed by Emile Dupont this 80 h.p. Le Rhone 9C powered fighter was rejected outright by the Aviation Militaire, but was accepted, with an initial order of 18 aircraft, by the Aviation Militaire Belge. Found by top Belgian ace Willy Coppens to be just the other side of useless they were quickly discarded.
