Note that if "Each network have his set of servers and a firewall which is the gate" then you actually have more stubs and subnets: one for each 4 networks themselves (hosts behind their gate-firewall), 1 to 4 connecting the gates with a common default-router (maybe with or without firewall itself, probably with NAT for internet link though), and maybe 1 or more external link from this router to the world.
