Also known as the R-5 the TM-22 was based on the unsuccessful MB-9 fighter and MB-10 trainer. First flying 29th September 1922 two models were produced for the army to enter the Pulitzer Trophy Race held on 14th October. The planes suffered both cooling and handling problems and finished in the last two positions in the race at tenth and eleventh. They were taken to Selfridge Field where they were statically tested to destruction.
