Ten years is enough for men to retire or machine shops to shut down ...
Twenty is enough for all institutional knowledge to vanish.

Semi-related; (re)starting 105mm XM35 production for MPF


Zayhowski said that to move the MPF program quickly to prototype development,
he tapped into the experiences of well-tenured machinists who are still active on
the production floors, as well as to Arsenal retirees who once worked on the
AGS program in the 1980s and 1990s.

Ryan Scrum, who is the Arsenal's general foreman for tube production, said
that what has been a big help in shaving time off of a proposed prototype production
schedule is that the 105mm tube is nearly identical to the tube the Arsenal
machined for the AGS program in the 1990s.

I think that this picture shows Amiot 150 prototype with single vertical tail stabilizer.
Upper fuselage turret shape is open type.
Perhaps directional inherent stability of this prototype was poor because of float. So I think twin vertical stabilizer was needed.
