No T.V prototype was built, the first to fly on 16 October 1937 being one of a batch of 16 ordered for the Netherlands air force earlier that year. The aircraft went into service in 1938, with the only Dutch bomber squadron. The type was reasonably well protected by machine-guns and its bombload was carried internally.
All 16 aircraft had been delivered before the outbreak of hostilities, but on the day of the German invasion only nine were serviceable. They destroyed almost 30 German aircraft on the ground at Waal-haven airfield and make heavy attacks on the bridges over the Maas before being destroyed (two were shot down by Dutch gunners), and only one T.V survived at the time of the Dutch surrender.
