    Oops -- sorry, should have read the question!
    RAF + all Dominions in RAF service
    Did some get to the Soviets or did they take one look and say "Nyet" ?

    Basily RAF bomber and coastal commands (with all it's variously originated squadrons) and SSSR recived some which were used by VVS VMF (naval aviation) as torpedo bombers in 24.MTAP( mine and torpedo aviation regiment). Sweden also got one for evaluation purposes.

    A bunch of interesting things from Wiki:

    It had six-bay swept quadriplane wings, the fuselage filled the gap between the second and third wings, and a biplane tailplane with twin fins and rudders. The cockpit was enclosed and heated.

    Go with either answer!
    I was looking for 4 wings, but the 2lbr was the first (IIRC) "large" gun ever fitted to an aircraft.

    Since Wiki is not really "cricket", I think BMG has it!
