Operational Overview
Overshadowed Fighters Campagin

The purpose of the GB is to highlight fighter aircraft of WW2 which are overshadowed by famous iconic aircraft. They may be so because they were overshadowed by other more famous aircraft, arrived on the scene too late, or experienced prolonged teething problems and so were deemed failures, or were so radical that their attributes were not recognized at the time. For whatever reason they are not widely known or appreciated.
