G-14: The Japanese Midway, basically a Shinano sized 50.000ton super carrier which was designed as a carrier from the start (to our current knowledge)
G-15: Improved Taiho design

G-14 could be a Shinano class with less ton of Shinano. (50.000 ton) or could be have been a two larger Taiho based on Shinano dimension. G-14 design i suppose was lost with the war.

What is the folding wing twin engine plane in the first photo?
I have finally found the answer to this question! It was a twin-engined concept for the next aircraft to replace the D3A, though this eventually evolved into the single-engined D4Y, interestingly enough.
