Hi Martin...sometimes its worth the risk of going with the obvious....I was hoping everyone would think it was TOO obvious, but yes, its the MS880B Rallye



RR has control

Edit to say, LM, just seen your post...this particular one is the MS Rallye but would have accepted SOCATA....but RR was there first.

Not French, not from that side of the pond.... it has a nose mounted gun turret.

Edit: RR, one was built and flew.

That's on the list, but it was a 4 engine biplane! This current challenge is 2 engine and high wing!

There were a couple of Halls on the list, but I did not see this particular one.
