The XA-22 mid-range bomber was developed by "Glenn L. Martin Co" in 1938. First serial built machines complited with french avionics and armament were ordered by French AF as "Martin-167 A3" (115+100 machines). Only 145 of them were delivered to France before its capitulation. The rest were bought by RAF and the order for 115 ones more was placed. Some of them were handed over to Sauth Africa.
AF In RAF a new bomber was named Martin Maryland. Marylands were used in 1940 in France, later and more widely in North Africa and Sicily (1940-1941). Abcence of armour and fuel tanks protection, poor armament led to big loosses that forsed the firm to create a new type named Baltimore. From 1941 Marylands were replaced by new types in all war theatres.
