The mention of the Vickers Windsor reminded me of this, but I can't remember what it was

IIRC it was a twin and btw, those gun positions were manned :eek:

An Australian designed/built aircraft with gun turrets at the rear of the engine nacelles, Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation Woomera, only two built.
