The FMA AeMB.2 Bombi was a bomber aircraft developed in Argentina in the mid-1930s. It was a low-wing cantilever monoplane of conventional configuration. It was fitted with fixed tailwheel undercarriage, the main units of which were covered by long, "trouser"-style fairings. The initial AeMB.1 configuration was fitted with a dorsal machine gun turret, later removed from the AeMB.2 to improve stability. Fifteen production examples saw service with the Argentine Air Force between 1936 and 1945. Only two were lost to air accidents.

En 1935 no era mucho lo que se podía pedir a los diseñadores y a la tecnología aeronáutica ... Me parece que pensando en estos pre-reqisitos, el modelo es audáz y va más allá que cualquier intento de competencia en iberoamerica ... para esos años, una cúpula para la ameteralladora como la que tiene este monoplano, indica una rica ambicion de avanzar en el campo de la ingenieria aeronautica ... Bill Barnes habría estado encantado ... bien por los argentinos!
