About this product
- DescriptionFlown by specialised squadrons, the Mosquito matured into the best British night fighter of World War 2, which allowed its crews to hit night intruders and German night fighters alike with speed and the devastating firepower. The aircraft's range and striking power led to its deployment by RAF Coastal Command as an effective long-range fighter.
