The Henri Farman H.F.22 was a Farman H.F.20 with a somewhat larger wingspan (though not so wide as the HF.21). They equipped one French escadrille, and eight were sent with the RNAS No.1 wing in Gallipoli, where they were found to be too underpowered for anything but reconnaissance. They also served in ones and twos with various other air forces, usually as a trainer.
