I heard that he (Dr Brobet) is the one that designed the mille feuille prior to that...

Is there any more info? Such as other photos of the model....

No more as I know.

Does anyone know what the differences between the AWG-10A and AWG-10B were, particularly from an operator's (RIO) as well as performance standpoint?

I hope we consider those airplanes are just for know a new ideas and concepts,many help
in the future.

From Ailes 23/3/1946,here is a strange idea by the amateur, Albert Denis.
Damon Knight, CV, 1985

United States

USS Bluefields
'Helicopter Carrier', class not specified.
No other details provided.

Plot summary: The year is 1998. The prototype sea habitat Sea Venture capable of carrying 3000 people, 2000 of them permanent residents has just set sail on it's maiden voyage, as it crosses the Pacific Ocean, a strange disease of unknown origin strikes.

Note (Spoiler): Damon Knight (1922 - 2002) was a science fiction author most well known for the short story 'To Serve Man'. This novel was the first in a trilogy dealing with the arrival of an alien life-form which has curious effects on the human psyche. Dating the story was almost impossible, as there are no specifics, save one scene in which a character discusses a traumatic event in 1973 and states it took place 25 years previous to the time of the story.

This is another 'Future of the Past' story, but the back history is only quickly sketched in, with references to riots in London in the late 80s and the destruction of Tel Aviv (by nuclear weapon?) at some point before the story begins. Like many authors Knight makes no reference to the internet, which started to become prominent in the real world around the time the story is set.

Other novels exhibiting this 'future of the past' quality I've covered are 'Thirty-Four East' (1974), 'The Hastings Conspiracy' (1980) (Both by Alfred Coppel), 'North Star Crusade' (1976) (William Katz), 'Side-Wall' (1982) (Geoff Hunt),  'The Phoenix Odyssey' (1986) (Richard P. Henrick) and 'End Game', 2011 (Matthew Glass), along with what is probably the most well known 'alternative history' sequence, 'Raise the Titanic' (1976), 'Vixen 03' (1978), 'Night Probe' (1981) & 'Deep Six' (1984) (All by Clive Cussler) which are set in an alternative 1980s (The novels are set between 1987 ('Raise the Titanic') & 1989 ('Deep Six').) with many differences from what actually happened, most notably Canada being absorbed by the United States (Something Cussler quietly dropped in later novels.).
