A development of the B-3, in fact I do believe the picture at the top of this page is a B-3. The B-3 had been ordered as the LB-10 but the USAAC dropped the L.B. (light bomber) designation and from 1930 the B-3A appellation was adopted. When the B-3A was re-engined with Wright 1750-3 engines the first three were given the title Y1B-5 and these were followed by 27 B-5A production bombers some of which continued in service until 1940.
