The first name of the author is "Bernard", not Bernat.

Allow me to share my own rework of the aircraft's profile view.

Neat, it looks quite sleek for its day and one can easily imagine one fitted out with a gun nose or the side gun packs like the B-25. Those circular rear positions are odd and it would be great to learn more. Are they lateral/rear defense gun positions, like a PBY Catalina, but with small transparent ball turrets instead of the big teardrop blisters on the Cat'?

The gun firing angles diagram adds some information about the gun positions.
