Breguet Br.462 Vultur: Sucking in the gut.

The Br. 462 was a modernized and cleaned-up version of the Br. 460. First flown in 1936, this still decently ugly bomber attained a speed of 402 km/h (250 mph) thanks to it more powerful Gnome-Rhône 14NO radials. It was not enough, just 3 were produced and next to nothing was achieved with them.

One Br 462 according to some sources one went to Japan.  Anyway, these uniformly dressed gentlemen appear to my like Japanese looking at a possible acquisition. A pretty impressive photo, in any case.
