What is this design? A.W.50 bomber?
Is it true?
"A.W.52 was intended as a sub-scale prototype for a full size bomber, the AW.50."

http://historylib.org/historybooks/Mikhail-Kozyrev_Reaktivnaya-aviatsiya-Vtoroy-mirovoy-voyny/28

In mid-December 1942 g. English company Armstrong Whitworth has begun to develop a jet bomber AW. 50, executed according to the scheme "flying wing." Aircraft powerplant consisted of four Metrovick TURBOJET ENGINE (the Metropolitan Vickers) F-3 thrust on 1700 kgs located in pairs on both sides of the cockpit. Bomb load was placed in internal compartments of the wing, defensive armament consisted of two guns in the nose and rear dual turrets, which subsequently abandoned.
