ID of Finnish flying boat sought

On page 32, center line, 2nd from right on this website http://sa-kuva.fi/neo?tem=webneoeng is a picture of a what seems to be an one-engined flying boat in use by the Finnish Air Force in their wars with the then Soviet Union.
Who can identify the type?

(Haven't figured out yet how to go to page 32 in one go, so a few mouse clicks may be necessary...)

Thanks & regards,

Leendert

Possibly a Beriev MBR-2? The Finns used several captured aircraft.

It is MBR-2 operated by 1./LeLv 6. Code VV-181. In the picture it is in a submarine hunting flight in the Gulf of Finland.
