    Upon close examination of the position of the wing, I think the tunic in the photo and the one that accompanies this grouping are the same as the angle of the wing and mounting height above the pocket is identical.

    Here is a nice shot of what I believe is a Breguet Bomber. This particular aircraft carried a maximum bomb load of 564 pounds. This aircraft also had a unique feature in that the flaps on the lower wings would drop automatically if the air speed was below 70 mph.
