The fighter-like type was shown in AviationWeek 9/1962, too, designated
ASP 610, other projects in this article were the ASP 613, a smaller and lighter
version of the ASP 610 and a fighter bomber without designation.

In the same issue (AviationWeek 9/1962) was an artists impression of the
firts design, designated ASP 410, intended for SAR missions.
Wouldn't the downdraught have been even worse, than today in the Osprey ?
