Just started the finland campaign where you fly a version of the gloucester gladiator. Kinda fun after the more complex fastr planes. obviously it's very manoeuverable but I wondered if anyone who'se completed this campaign has any tips?

The gladiator is my second favorite ride after the Emil however I never felt the Finland campaign did it justice. You spent to many missions trying to climb to high altitude chasing fast bombers. In fact I often left the mission target for the AI and went chasing targets of opportunity on the ground.

I DO enjoy flying the Gloster Gladiator J8a in any form (for obvious reasons). However I fly online 99% of my time and unfortunately there seem to be very few servers with a decent early war scenario (eg J8/chaika/g50...)



I remember a few years ago though, an online war site depicted early winterwar in finland, featuring these planes.. and man.. that was F U N..

Here are a few screens from two of these missions I/we flew.
