Ah, okay. Thanks Hesham. So for those designations, 'VG' is for Vernisse and Galtier while 'VGU' is for Vernisse and GUyot.

Thanks for those, Hesham. The drawing caption kind of suggest that the VG 39bis and VG 40 were the same thing. Not quite.

The VG 39bis project combined the VG 39's HS.12Y-89ter/HS-12Z powerplant with the VG 36 fuselage. The Occupation-era VG 40 project was closely related but seems to have had a larger wing area (and an alternative 1,030 hp Merlin III powerplant).

VG 50 was a cover designation for an Occupation-era VG 40 development powered by a 1,200hp Allison V-1710-39.

Yes my dear Apophenia,

but VG.40 was based on VG.39bis and its airframe,of course the were not the same.

Hi,

for VB.10,it had a Project for blind fuselage configuration,that means the pilot couldn't see well
in straight point.
