Zusammenfassung

A triplane is a fixed-wing aircraft equipped with three vertical stacked wing planes. The triplane arrangement may be compared with the biplane in a number of ways.
A triplane arrangement has a narrower wing chord than a biplane of similar span and area. This gives each wing-plane a slender appearance with higher aspect ratio, making it more efficient and giving increased lift. This potentially offers a faster rate of climb and tighter turning radius, both of which are important in a fighter. The Sopwith Triplane was a successful example, having the same wing span as the equivalent biplane, the Sopwith Pup. Alternatively, a triplane has reduced span compared to a biplane of given wing area and aspect ratio, leading to a more compact and lightweight structure. This potentially offers better maneuverability for a fighter, and higher load-capacity with more practical ground handling for a large aircraft type.
Zeppelin killers. A few British designers pursued the triplane configuration in the anti-Zeppelin role. From 1915, Armstrong Whitworth developed the F.K.5 and F.K.6 prototypes. These were large three-seat types with twin engines and the middle wing of noticeably longer span than the others. Then in 1917 Blackburn produced their singleseat triplane.
With the end of the First World War and the victory over Germany, the time of the further development of the triplane is over. Maybe that's why my thoughts on the triplane always pair with war equipment. I do not know who I treat more unfairly, the war or the technology.
