This Week’s Hints to help you along:

  • Designed specifically for ground attack, yet a triplane!
  • The personnel look quite lax — yet is it from the interwar period?
  • A single pilot airplane — no copilot! — but had two gunners.
  • Fitted with armor plates so it could survive while strafing trenches.

So do you know what this aircraft is?
