Topic title should be Götaverken Aircraft List.

In 1906 the shipbuilding and engineering activities of the Keillerska family in Hisingen, Gothenburg, Sweden, where taken over by a new company, "Göteborgs Nya Verkstadsaktiebolag" (Gothenburg New Engineering Company Limited) with the telegraphic address "Götaverken", which became the company name in 1916: "AB Götaverken". In 1934, company president Hugo Hammer initiated the "Götaverken Flygavdelning" (Götaverken Aircraft Department) at the shipyard's woodwork shop. Bo Lundberg became design engineer and test pilot.

Well some stats for the GP9 is 680 km/h, 4x 13.2 mm m/39a 250 rpg. Full metal construction. Developed into the J22. J21 picked over it due to its being 20% cheaper.

From the looks of it the GP8 was to have 2-3 gunners aiming backwards. The 2 windows on the ass indicates that atleast on man was to be stationed there and have downwards vision and upper vision. This probably meant 2x 7.9 mm m/22f or 13.2 mm m/39a being fitted in the ventral positions. The hatch thingy above the cockpit could probably be opened in mid flight and a 3rd gunner would pop up. Fixed armament is probably a single 13.2 mm like on the B18.

One last thing a mockup of the GP8 is known to have been built but since both the GP8 and GP9 planes competed against the saab 18 and 21 respectively its not to unrealistic to say that a mockup was built of the GP9 as well.
