Looks like multiple pump jets plus a screw at the stern? What's going on there?

Single screw with X-planes, I thought. Popular nowadays.

Why would you want to beach the aircraft carrier?

It's an LST, too - there is a vehicle ramp at the bow. It's not a completely absurd idea, if you want a single vessel to have multiple methods of landing a force, it's just...  very crowded conceptually.

Swallow,

Thanks for the ID.  I did some searching and you are the only source that knows this airplane as the Potez 52.  Please share anything else you know about the airplane or if you know of a drawing of it somewhere.  There is one book that might have something:  "Les Avions Potez".  Unfortunately, it is very expensive if you can find one at all.

Does anyone have more detailed views of this?

Yep. Coming soon:

Something depicting the landing gear arrangement?

How about the nose inlet?  Did it duct around the pilot's compartment or was there that set of fan blades in front?

The model shown in the posts above got the inlet *really* wrong. The inlet "bullet" was actually transparent so that the pilot had a decent view forward and down for landing. The engine bits were well aft of the cockpit.

Justo,

Where did you find those illustrations and images?

Mr. Dijkman Dulkes designed and built the Bravo in 1931,it was a single seat high-wing
cabin monoplane,powered by one 750-cc DAF engine,who know more about it or has a
picture ?,and I saw the same name as aircraft built after WWII,that makes me confuse !.

Here is the airplane,which I spoke about it ?,I can't judge;

Do I spot a lack of vertical stabilisers?

I think not.
