A-340-200/300-Type Reversers

Are they considered cascade type? Or bucket type?

When I look at them in pictures, they sort of look like four-buckets forming an X-shape when closed rather than the typical clamshel (V-shape), but I'm not sure.

If you have the Petal Reversers, then they are the bucket type and just act as four large scoops however if you have the sleeve type reversers, they're the cascade type.
