It is a Curtiss, but never had an opportunity to release ammunition on a morphed gorilla.
Only one built and described as "yet another of a seemingly incessant one-off variations on the Curtiss Hawk theme."
Flown in 1930.

Stating it was a Hawk variant was a unnecessary give away.
But thanks anyway.
Now this:

Before I saw Noyade's post, I thought it looked like something designed by someone who thought the Pou was too mainstream. But in a steep climb, it will punch above its weight in the blotting-out-the-sun department.

Thanks mate!
But I think it's time for someone else to have a go.
Open House.

Cheers!

teusje,

Thank you. A fairly obscure type, it seems, with only 4 built.

Sorry, nothing on hand, so Open House

The "Helouan" HA-300 according to William Green back in 1964.
However, Wiki calls it "Helwan."....

Different transcriptions of the Egyptian place name. I guess the -ou- version is a French transcription, which would figure with its being apparently the one used earlier in the Anglophone world, as in this caption of WW1 Australian troops in Egypt https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/P01824.001

Ok - Noyade has it

It was really the last proper Messerschmidt I guess - but they stopped development as the Israelis kept killing the German engineers........
