Mosquito is fully licensed by the Royal Air Force and has been developed to the very highest standards by the vintage aircraft experts at Aeroplane Heaven as a lasting tribute to this amazing aircraft.
Mosquito includes three classic Mosquito variants - the B. Mk IV, the FB. Mk VI and the frightening FB Mk XVIII Tsetse with its underslung flak gun.
Built from wood and powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlins, the Mosquito was a formidable aircraft with the speed of a fighter, the manoeuvrability of a racer and the payload of a bomber.
There are three detailed Mosquito variants with four liveries included in this package.
Mosquito B. Mk IV - 'GB-G' DK296 105 Squadron, No. 2 Group, mid-1942. This is the aircraft which led the famous attack on the Gestapo headquarters in Oslo, Norway on the 25th September 1942.
Mosquito FB. Mk VI - 'NE-A' HR 405 of 143 Squadron RNFAA, flown by Flg Officers A V Randell and R R Rawlins, Banff Strike Wing.
Mosquito FB. Mk VI - 'TS-B' MM404 of 464 Squadron RAAF, flown by Sqn Ldr Ian McRitchie and Flt Lt R W "Sammy" Sampson 18th February 1944. This aircraft was involved in the famous Amiens Prison raid. Hit by flak, McRitchie, badly wounded crash landed TS-B and survived as a POW. Sampson did not survive.
Mosquito FB. Mk XVIII 'Tsetse' - 'O' NT225 of 248 Squadron RAF 1945 the ground attack and anti-shipping fighter-bomber developed from FB Mk VI. A Molins 6-pounder 57mm cannon firing 25 rounds carried and 4 x .303 machine guns made up the armament.
Each model is faithfully reproduced and contains amazingly detailed animated features. The cockpits are equipped with the latest 'smooth' gauges for more realism and just about every switch, button and control lever operates with the mouse – even the crew doors open with the lever! Everything is historically and technically authentic right down to the panel bolts and brackets.
In the bomber versions, the ‘bomb room’ is equipped with a working bomb sight, bomb-arming switches and bomb trigger. Even the emergency axe hangs on the fuselage wall!
The exterior models are finely detailed, with correct movement for the flaps, radiator shutters, rudder and elevator trim tabs, bomb doors and more. The landing gear is detailed down to the brake lines and hydraulic actuators.
In this package we have provided a good spread of aeroplanes with known histories. For the more adventurous, there is a full paint kit included so you can to finish your Mosquito variant in the scheme of your choice.
High quality sound set
Many novel effects will be included, such as the dropping of ordnance, smoke effects and more. Please note that a dropped weapon will not 'destroy' any objects, as the Mosquito is hosted in Flight Simulator 2004 which does not have this function.
