Sounds like something "Potez". Tail shape seems like other Potez planes. I really wondered this one.

Yes, it looks a bit like some Potez planes, but the plane in question isn't a French origin.
Please try again :)

Breda Ba-88 Lince...good looking plane (real beauty 8) ) but terrible results in combat thanks to poor performance and unreliable engines...think most of them where used as target practice on the ground!

We got some clues. Three winged propellers, windowed nose, and can be seem as not important, we got one in bracketed landing gears. Also the radiator in bottom of the engines..

First i see two possibilities. "Mitsubishi Ki 21". But the nose is not so longer and the radiator shapes is not matching..
Second one is "Petlyakov Pe-2". Shape of engines and the cocpit ratio is matching. These planes also got windows on the nose but not in that shape. And two engined Soviet planes always got two bracketed landing gears. "Hmm.." plus: the plane in the photo is fatter then pe 2.. The plane is maybe some variants of that two vechiles.

I am not so good at defining random planes :P
