After having built mainly aircraft with pusher prop, "pushers", Martin switched to types with a pull screw, 'tractors' in 1913.
Work on the Martin T prototype started in August 1912. It was equipped with a Gnome radial engine.
In October 1914 it was succeeded by the Martin TA (Tractor Army), with an engine of 120 hp, designed for a competition of the US Army. However it was destroyed during test flights.
In February 1914 Martin was asked to equip a Model T with dual controls in a tandem cockpit. Three Model Ts were adjusted and another 14 eaxamples were built under the designation Model TT (tractor Trainer).
