Actually I only "speak" that much that Musashi-san has taught us at the post-WWII section :)

A company famous for many better known military designs built this racer.
Name this (unlucky) racer.

Correct answer Juke.
IMHO the "rather" is a quite mild expression :D
Pic: http://www.raravia.com/piaggiopc7.htm
proinciple:
Before takeoff, the Pc.7 floated up to its wings on its watertight fuselage. For takeoff, the pilot started the engine, then a clutch engaged the tail screw and the plane started to move. It was raised above the water's surface almost instantly by the high-incidence hydroplanes. At that point, the pilot opened the normal carburetor air intake and gave full power to the engine, at the same time engaging the flight propeller, which automatically went from feathered to flight pitch. Then the pilot, straining to see through the spray from the hydroplanes, would take off. Freed of the drag and weight of floats, the Pc.7 was supposed to reach a projected maximum speed of 434.7 mph. There were allegedly some takeoff attempts, but the drive train was plagued with problems, and many pilots were unwilling to fly the Pc.7.

Another picture recognition question, but this time with feet (actually, treads) firmly on the ground: Name this vehicle.

A hint:

This tankette was not a successful design and I believe only six of them were built. The country where the vehicle was designed, opted for a license-built tankette of foreign design instead of this vehicle.

Another hint:

The license-built vehicle I mentioned was originally a British design. The picture of that British vehicle is shown below.
