The answer is completely in the article, you posted:
Maurice Paltz was an aviation engineer, who worked for Guerchais-Roche and Holste and
proposed those 2, or better one-and-a half designs, intended for amateur construction and
designed for easy building. And both designs differed in wing only, the fuselage was the same.

It would appear that the Atalante GB-10 survived the war as it had been mentioned in Les Ailes of 14 April 1938. It was designed by G.Bertout (hence the initials GB) for the Société des Avions 'Atalante' and had been constructed by Ateliers Nicolas in Auxerre. Les Ailes reported that had been had been presented, earlier that month, at Villacoublay Aerodrome and that it had been demonstrated at St Cyr Aerodrome.

Just a thought, but wouldn't this 1946 emanation of the GB-10 Atalante be better placed on the post-war aircraft projects board?

This article is mainly about the GB-10, I think, a type from 1938. As I understand (please correct me, if I'm wrong !),
the other types would have been closely related to the GB-10, versions for different purposes/clients and maybe
designed in the time between 1938 and 46. So it's ok, I think, to deal with them in this section here, as long, as we
have no clear evidence otherwise.
