Don't think I've ever seen anything on the drawing in the lower left hand corner.
As it's described as an 'artist's concept', the picture may be everything on that particular stopped-rotor concept. Since it features the other wonder-tech of 1980s aeronautics, the forward-swept wing, an artist's (or marketeer's) fancy seems quite likely to me.

Interesting nuggets of information about the SV-22 on there. It could have been a very capable aircraft, and could conceivably have got some export orders.

The D-340 gets my vote on sheer adorableness, even without a specific application for it!
