Graphic of C-13 catapult variant details not available now: https://www.tpub.com/content/aviation/1 ... 10_135.htm

Funnily enough the original C-13 steam catapult had a power stroke of 76 metres approx. that seems to gibe with the CdeG catapult data but of course is it the power stroke or track length that is quoted. Who knows - always a puzzle.

Over the page I added the C-13[-3] for some reason but it is not the original reference so I suggest CdeG has the original C-13 steam catapult as per the diagram length, making it the SHORT original version of the C-13 catapult variants.
