One of the most revolutionary and effective combat aircraft of WWII, the British de Havilland Mosquito was in service with the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1940 to 1961. A brilliant and innovative design, the 'Mossie' left a bright and lasting mark in the history of aviation and served the United States, Canada, and Australia.
An airframe built mostly of wood, to save on scarce metal supplies, earned the Mosquito the nickname "The Wooden Wonder". It was also known as ‘Freeman’s Folly’ after the Air Marshal who backed its production.
Armed with four 7.7mm (.303in) Browning machine guns and four 20mm (.79in) Hispano Mk.II cannons, this superbly versatile fighter-bomber could carry both bomb and rocket payloads over long distances at high speed – and deliver them with pinpoint accuracy.
The Mossie’s ability to maintain a high cruising speed at high altitude made it very difficult for Luftwaffe fighters to intercept it.
The DCS: Mosquito FB VI fighter-bomber you will be flying is the most impressive variant of this aircraft to see action in WWII. A total of 2,140 were produced.
Equipped with more powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin 25 engines, the FB Mk. VI’s excellent handling characteristics make it a pleasure to fly.
