I am really excited about this plane, which it turned out to be really excellent. I want to ask about the FM, how well it's worked out. This one is so much better than the hurricane. It's now a mystery to me why the brits didn't put the "Guardian" into production.

My only objection it's about the cockpit. The tempest cockpit seems out of place. A gladiator cockpit seems a much more reasonable choice. Why the tempest cockpit was selected? (I am usually in the opinion that the modder knows better, still I was surprised...)

Thanks for the addition of a not very well known experimental plane. I like to do a lot of fantasy combat so this would be a great addition to my library. I don't have BAT so I am wondering if this will work in my v 4.12.2m SAS Modact v 5.3 set up.

Hi NavyAce, seems to work well in my heavily modded 4.12 install.

John Kent recalled that it was a great plane, but he had a weak engine. Performance was lagging behind Spitfire and Hurricane. It seems that FM well demonstrates the capabilities of this machine: A small load on the wing, but rather a anemic engine. Regards.

Thanks so much for this aircraft - currently my 'go to' in TGA (I only fly for fun in that era). I love these prototypes that did not quite make it. There are others that would be nice to see in TGA - Vickers Venom, MB B2/B3/B5 and the Bristol 146 to name just a few.

It's OK to fly, but it burns pretty easily. Even under MG fire from Japanese bombers. I found that out when i did a single mission for it.
