Hello Goodbye:
I was naming the parts in the order you pictured them, Xosé.

The "fan struts" can also be referred to as "bracing."

Hello Goodbye:
You can see where typical dreadnought cross-bracing would make the top more resistant to cracking...





In this case, the brace struts are scalloped.


Xose:
Correct...

The dreadnought bracing makes the top much more resistant, and the typical Spanish fan-strut bracing is intended for a much thinner top, as it's the case with Spanish guitar tops, both flamenco and classical. What does this mean?? This means that tops in Spanish guitar making are much more "vibrant", i.e., diafragmatic style vibration...

Best!! ;)
