A great week for enthousiasts of warbirds. After the release of the Supermarine Spitfire for MSFS by Aeroplane Heaven, DCS will welcome the de Havilland Mosquito to its ranks. The Mosquito is a very versatile combat aircraft, that served a great many roles during WWII. It was mostly used as a fast and agile bomber, but also had great fighting capabilities. The plane was also used for photo-reconnaisance, pathfinder, and many more things. The Mosquito flew with the Royal Air Force in the European, Meditteranean and Italian theatres of war. The Mosquito was particularly remarkable because it was built mostly out of wood, to save scarce building materials.
The DCS version of the plane is the Mosquito FB Mk. VI variant of the plane, which is also the most produced version in real life. It’s powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlin Mk. 25 engines, and carries 4 .303 Browning machine guns, 4 Hispano 20mm. guns, and 250lbs and 500lbs bombs in the bomb bay and under the wings. The plane also comes with full simulations of the fuel system (including external tanks), electrical system, hydraulic system and the pneumatic system. The flight dynamics are based on official reports, Eagly Dynamics’ own CFD research and pilot feedback. The Mosquito also supports the new internal, structure-based damage model in DCS.
The DCS: Mosquito FB VI is available right now for $59.99, with a sale going on for $47.99. It should be noted that the plane is available in Early Access, and it may contain bugs or other incomplete features.
