The page is too long now for all the pictures... I can no longer see the bottom of it. Can you resize some of the pics?

Yes, but the aircraft looks great, isn't it? "Ca valait la peine!"

Hi! Twin engines?

https://www.hydroretro.net/etudegh/arsenal_de_l_aeronautique.pdf
Yes, they were all (VB-10, VG-20 and VG-10) foreseen as engines in tandem planes (as the Kawasaki Ki-64).

The flying testbed, destroyed in Lyon-Bron on 30/04/1944 by allied bombers, was a modified one-engine Latécoère 299, the Latécoère 299A (its two engines were closer together and before the pilot). It flew three times before to be destroyed. 4 photos and 2 drawings on this Russian links : http://www.airwar.ru/enc/spyww2/late299.html
