The airplane in this photo is in fact an AT-6, not a BT-13. The curved windshield, and bulge ahead of it for the cal .30 machine gun, are giveaways.

Mr. Shipley:

Thank you for your comment. I must admit, I struggled with this identification when I first wrote the caption but based on your observations, I completely agree with you that this is an AT-6. The caption and links have been changed accordingly. Thank you again.
