Because the cosmetic difference between a J8A and a Gladiator is mostly in the cockpit (Swedish dials), it seemed fair enough to call it by its nickname.

There are 3 models of the Glad FM'd in the game - the Gladiator MkI, Gladiator MkII, and the flyable Swedish J8A Gladiator. I'm pretty sure the external model is the same, but they have a separate skin set, naturally.

The J8a has a 2 blade fixed pitch wooden prop.

The Gladiator Mk.II has a 3 blade constant speed prop, and far better performance, especially in climb. I wish we would get this one as a flyable...
