Strange, that the G.20 isn't mentioned in that blog, as it actually
was built and AFAIK finished after the war, but never test flown.

Yes, but the source book seems unavailable:
http://www.amazon.fr/Trente-service-laviation-Louis-Br%C3%A9guet/dp/B00183RXAS

Maybe Google has scanned it but I don't know the procedure to check. Maybe dear Hesham knows?

The Gyroplane Automobile isn't mentioned in Cunys "Les Avions Breguet", but at least
it somewhat resembles the Breguet car type A2, which was electrically driven. Of course,
this maybe just accidentally and I'm not sure, if it was meant as a project at all, or just
to show the idea, that the amalgamation of car and aircraft could be beneficial.
Another Breguet Gyroplane, that can be found in the mentioned Docavia, too, is the G.34,
which was proposed in 1941. It was intended to carry about ten passengers and two crew,
powered by a GR 14M with 630 hp.

Many thanks, not even in Cunys "Avions Breguet" I could find a drawing of the G.10.
I remember having seen an artists impression of a helicopter very similar attacking a
submarine with gunfire. IIRC it was described as the G.20, but had a staggered cockpit,
so probably should show the G.10 .

In the Trait d'Union #172 that I will discuss in another topic is this sentence: (Bréguet Airplanes 1919-1945. Gyroplanes) We will not detail here the gyroplanes, directing for that to our special issue of Trait d'Union "René Dorand, 50 years of gyraviation", written by Pierre Boyer anf published in 1992. We will present only drawings illustrating the laboratory-gyroplane that would have been coded Br 314.
Someone may need this Dorand issue, no?

This artists impression was the site JC Carbonel, and a link to this page here:
