Around 1935 Rambojutter Ltd joined up with Polikarpov to produce a rival to the Gloster Gladiator, it utilised a novel radiator inlet position in the spinner (later tried by Hawker on the tempest), powered by an early version of the RR Merlin using a 5 bladed propellor to reduce its diameter and armed with 2 20mm cannon it was a formidable aircraft. VTOL down for flaps, AG2 for engine boost

    im gonna have to say its nowhere close to compete with a gloster gladiator. Hawker Hurricane it may challenge but a gladiator is... well.... not something to compete with
