Hi Tasse

It looks suspiciously like the Paulhan-Pillard T3-BN4 which was built by SPCA.

I hesitate only because the photo that I have, from the 1930 Jane's, doesn't have the rear ventral fin and the forward gun position doesn't have the glazing (?) below it. Having said that the float mounting is pretty unique and the general disregard for streamlining is typical of 1930's French designs.

Cheers
