    Yes they built planes my mentally deranged chum BUT they were all utter useless crap (part of the reason they were so easily occupied just like the Czechs and the poles who also had shit planes)

    ignore Kiwi - he just likes crap planes! :lol: (joke)

    F4U-7 didnt arrive for France until probably after 1953 and probably last long until 1965 or later on.

    My friend i have read some of the shit you have spouted before but this is going TOO FAR! :evil: the Gloster Gladiator was NOT a shit plane - if you knew anything about it you wouldn't say that! Yes it was a biplane but if you READ something about it you will learn that it was an AMAZING plane and far far from shit - the others you mentioned weren't brilliant but the Gladiator shouldn't be in the same list as those planes at all!

    The Allied top scorer, Squadron Leader Pattle, got many of its kills flying the Gladiator.

    i'm sure that there's someone out there who's thinking exactily what you wrote to GermansRGeniuses about the Gladiator, so perhaps this should go in the paradox thread?
