In the August 2017 issue of the French magazine "Le Fana de l'Aviation", there is the 3-page article "La force atomique fantôme" about aircraft projects for the French Force de Frappe. It is written by Philippe Gallien.  The article is from page 35 to 37 in the magazine.
One concept is á la "B-58C Hustler".  ;) B) Again, great drawings by Alain Rataineau aka alanqua.  :)
Looking foward to read about the French bomber projects  in forthcoming book French Secret Projects 2.

Edited and more info added for better understanding. It was late last night. :)
Here a screenshot of page 36 and 37 of that article showing the drawing of the Nord Aviation nuclear bomber Project, I mentioned before. This drawing and one of the "Mirage 4000N" are by Alain Rataineau aka alanqua.  :) B)
The other 3-view drawing shows the Dassault Mirage IVB project.

Interesting to compare the Nord Minerve rendered by Alain Ratinaud in dark camouflage (ŕ la Mirage IV in the seventies)  to the cover of FSP2 by Daniel Uhr (in natural metal early sixties style).

More teasing : Attila, Sud-Aviation nuclear-powered missile. page 236 of FSP2
