Hi!
http://www.alternativefinland.com/1937-medium-bomber-ilmavoimat/

"In late 1934 a competition was held for a bomber with the following specifications: A speed of 210 mph) at 14,800 ft and 239 mph at 16,000 ft), a range: of 620 miles with a 2,600 lb bombload and a ceiling of 26,000 feet. The ceiling and range specifications were not met, but the speed was exceeded by almost all the machines entered. At the end of the competition, the “winners” were the Ca.135 (with 204 aircraft ordered), the Fiat BR.20 (204 aircraft ordered), the Piaggio P.32 (144 aircraft ordered), the Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 (96 ordered), the CANT Z.1007 (49 ordered), and the Piaggio P.32 (12 ordered). This array of aircraft was proof of the anarchy, clientelarism, and inefficiency that afflicted the Italian aviation industry. Worse was the continuous waste of resources by the Regia Aeronautica (Italian Royal Air Force). Orders were given for aircraft that were already obsolete. The winners of the competition were not always the best – the BR.20 was overlooked in favour of the SM.79, an aircraft which was not even entered in the competition."

Thanks! But the problem is that there's nothing about the BR.20C on wikipedia, which had a tricycle undercarriage and a 37mm in the nose.
I am curious about this variant.

Thanks again hesham!
Sadly there's nothing that I didn't already know.
I guess it's a pretty obscure variant, the first italian tricycle bomber!

Hi! NARDI FN.305D-Ⅰand D-Ⅱ.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nardi_FN.305
"Two long-range FN.305D variants were then produced powered by a 200 hp (149 kW) Walter Bora radial engine. The first FN.305D was a two-seater which was used on a record-breaking flight between Rome and Addis Ababa in March 1939 gaining a class record for covering the 4463.8 km (2,773,68 miles) at an average speed of 240 km/h (149 mph). The second FN.305D was a single-seater bought by Yugoslavia for an aborted attempt at a nonstop North Atlantic flight."
