    The one in between is unknown

    Hi all,

    I got another "French" problem. Obviously, I miss something from the late 30s. Or I am a bit blind, what happens every now and then. Now take a look at the picture: rightmost there is the Bloch MB 160 4-engined prototype. Leftmost I see a Potez 630. The little thing right to it could be a Caudron racer. Right to it, there stands the Bloch MB 220 airliner. But what is between MB 220 and MB 160?

    It seems to have a long canopy. This shows the Bloch MB 174. But the latter has a double tailfin. For an Amiot 354 or stuff, it is a bit too plump (for the MB 174 either) The Amiot also should wear its characteristic triangular tailfin. Douglas A-20 Havoc sent to France? Is shoulder-wing configurated, here we see a low-wing aircraft.

    Sorry, I have no idea. Do you? Thank you for every answer! Picture is from aviadejavu.ru. Click image for larger version

    Is it a Digby Mk.I (Boeing Bolo?)?

      The Fulgur like wing suggests to me it's a Breguet. (Vultur)

        Possibly a Breguet 462 Vultur rather than a 460, which is (slightly) more normally seen? The nose appears a bit shallow, and I'm not sure about the height of the engines above the wings nor the tail, but even if these are "off" there's nothing that couldn't be seen on a prototype that didn't otherwise get photographed?

          Yes, I think it could be a Breguet 462. Normally, one thinks it has a vertical nose. But there are pictures on the net that show a version with a more rounded tip. So thank you!

            The cutting is from a 1937 Flight feature , 2 pages separated by 4 pages of adverts.
