The flaps are in more than one section. How many planes had that?

Isn't that just a cut-out in the leading edge of the flap?
Considering the two guns in situ would the third probably fit as long back as a cut-out in the flap is needed :-/

I finaly had the chance to examine the photo on a proper screen.

 

3 guns, Rounded wingtip, Naval personel. My next guess: F4U

 

You can not tell the angle in wich the photo was taken and at what point the photgrapher was positioned. So you don't know for sure how much wing is behind the photographer.

Stony,

     You are the winner. Well done. I don't know where Armand is. :wacko:  :unsure:  :rolleyes:

This is a picture of US Navy officers installing a M2 .50 caliber machine gun

into the right wing of an F4U in Jacksonville Florida on 12 July 1944. Some

publicity picture I am sure.

 

Great job, Jeff ;)  :)

I'm right here!
However, the aim wasn't to find a winner by the first one reckognizing the aircraft, but to see If, and how many would be able to reckognize the claimed F4U by the sight and possible without much browsing!
At least Stoney could!

The flaps of the F4U are in three sections because of the bent wing.

But, did You assume the flap to be short, hence a part of multiples or what?

You can see that the middle part of the flaps is bent down, and the other two are still up. I bet the ground crew loved this arrangement since they didn't have to get off the ground to service the guns. Compare this with Mustang flaps:
