As the aircraft was designed for Austria, it was fitted with the 6 cylinder 200hp Austro-Daimler engine.

The aircraft did not perform as well as expected but was still shipped to Matyasfold in Austria, 24 Apr 1918, and given the designation ‘90.05’.

V.22 remained a prototype as the Austrian’s decided to go with MAG built Fokker D.VII’s.

None of these aircraft were delivered in time for use, but were later found in Hungarian service.
