I've been researching this Aircraft a lot lately because of the RAAF's heavy involvement with it in WWII. And it's a bit of a sleeper I think.
The Japanese called it the "Whispering Death" as it was loaded with 4 cannons and 6 machine guns (plus rockets!! As they called them back then. ). It literally shredded targets.
I'm going to build one eventually. It will be a RAAF build naturally. But here's a story of our southern cousins in the SAAF. Incredible bravery and airmanship.
