Can Anyone Identify this French Aircraft?

Hi all

I would appreciate an identification for this French aircraft, located at an airfield near Paris in July 1940.

Thanks for any help.

It's either an Amiot 351 or an Amiot 354 depending of its tailplane (the 351 was twin-tailed).
The photograph was taken at Le Bourget in June 1940 where a production line had been settled.

Thanks CJE. It has a single tail. There are a number of images, including this one, that are captioned 'Le Bourges July 1940', which I took to be Le Bourget.

The clarification is much appreciated.

Re: Can Anyone Identify this French Aircraft?

Didn't know the French had a bomber. Was it classified as a medium bomber?

Are you kidding?
We had four types of medium bombers in first line:
- Amiot 351/354
- Lioré-et-Olivier LeO 451
- Douglas DB-7
- Martin 167-F
Two heavy bombers:
- Farman 222.2
- Farman 223.4 (first Allied aircraft to bomb Berlin)
Two ancient types used by night:
- Bloch 210
- Amiot 143
