No JL didn’t have a clue!!
I've been waiting for someone else to have a go at this as I was way this week.
Anyway.
It’s a Savoie-Marchetti SM.92, Italian designed, heavy fighter/bomber. The picture shows it in German markings as the aircraft was completed after the Italian Armistice.
The Daimler Benz engine cowling was the starter clue. DB 605 in this case.
I did look at this as a challenge a while back.
