In 1938 the Mosquito was designed as a reconnaissance aircraft, an unarmed bomber that flew so high and fast that armament would be superfluous. The Mosquito had the maneuverability of a fighter yet this bomber could also fly 400 mph. The plywood bomber had a range of 1650 miles. The Mosquito had 4 -20 mm cannons and 4-7.7 mm machine guns in nose plus 2000 Ibs. of bombs or 1000 Ibs. of bombs and 8 rocket projectiles.

de Havilland Mosquito PR.Mk XVI

Designed in a private venture as a high-altitude, high-speed unarmed bomber, the de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was first flown on November 25th, 1940. The Mosquito was one of the most successful aircraft of the Second World War. Only the Ju 88 could rival its versatility. Powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, the all-wood Mosquito was as fast as a fighter and could carry the payload of a medium bomber. During its lifetime, the Mosquito was used in varying roles, which included night fighter and ground attack. It carried radar systems and cannons, and there was even a carrier landing version.
