Curtiss based their R3C and R3C-2 models on the U.S. Navy's F3C fighter. In the 1920s, the U.S. Navy and Army acquired planes from the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company specifically to race against civilian planes in national and international air races. One of the most noted was the Schneider Trophy, an international competition.
