Plane of the Week: Vultee A-31 Vengeance

Colin Nash suggested this week's plane, the Vultee A-31 Vengeance. Largely forgotten, this American dive bomber saw combat operations with the RAF, IAF and RAAF in the Far east during WW2. Scans of an interesting article on the plane from Flightpath magazine can be found in this thread.
