I'd like to fly the Gladiator off of a carrier, is there anyway to do this? I have DCG, could I start a F4f campaign for example & change my squadrons plane type to the Glad/ J8 ?

There are some malta style campaigns that use the J8A to represent a sea gladiator but they takeoff from land bases I believe.

There are a lot of sea gladiator skins kicking about.

Your main problem with carriers will be the lack of a hook on the J8A when landing.

This is no problem. J8 landing speed is so low that it's easy to land on deck. Easier than most actual carrier borne planes, I would say.

Saburo_0,

I just tried a takeoff and landing from CVE Casablanca. No problem!

Cheers,

Will give it a go then!
With jobs & school feel the need to fly S-L-O-W, now & then!
