Apophenia said:Not sure about "better" ... but certainly different. The MB 480 was a conceptual evolution of the MB 136 but based on a different airframe. The MB 136 was based on the airframe of the original MB 134. The MB 480 airframe was based on that of the slightly enlarged second iteration of the MB 134.
MB 136: span 20.82 m, length 15.10 m, gross weight 9,165 kg
MB 480: span 23.50 m, length 19.10 m, gross weight 10,000 kg
hesham said:as they wrote in the magazine,the developing of MB.480 killed the program of MB.136.
c460 said:Here are unnamed four-engine Bloch studies, some of which were drawn by Marcel Riffard. These are from Le Fana no.342 again.
The same source mentions further four-engine projects: the Bloch IX and XI passenger aircraft and the Bloch XVI heavy bomber (BN5), of 1930-31.
c460 said:According to Le Fana no.343, the MB.163 was a scaled-down version of the MB.162, or a MB.162 with a smaller wing.
The same article mentions a Bloch MB.400 passenger derivative of the MB.160, with tricycle gear, whose prototype was started but never completed.
