Wright-Martin R AS523
 
The two-place Wright-Martin R was built in 1917 as a landplane and a single pontoon floatplane. The land version was used briefly in the Mexican Border campaign, and seaplanes went to the Philippines.
 
Fourteen were built (AS108 and 109, and AS522-533) but some records show the total as 27, which might indicate prior production of 13 by Martin in 1916, before the merger.
 
Some versions had diagonal end-struts replacing the wire bracing.
