The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was a lightweight, fast, maneuverable and highly versatile aircraft. It’s long

life first began over Oslo, Norway raiding the Gestapo headquarters with pinpoint accuracy, this opened new

avenues for precision weapons development.

 

The Mosquitos’ sleek design and high powered engines gave it the ability to fight in many roles such as fighter

-bomber, night-fighter, tactical bomber, high-altitude night bomber, pathfinder, intruder, maritime striker, and

photo-reconnaissance aircraft. It went on to be used in a wide range of different operations, mainly targeting

industrial sites in occupied Netherlands, Norway, France and Germany. The Mosquito ended the war with the

lowest losses of any of the aircraft types in RAF Bomber Command service.

 

DCS: Mosquito FB Mk.VI will be the first flyable twin-engined piston aircraft in DCS World.

 

We are currently working on the fuel systems by carefully creating and linking nine fuel tanks that contribute

to the exceptional range and endurance of this aircraft. We are also working on the electrical system, which

comprises a 24 volt DC generator on the starboard side and an alternator on the port engine that also supplies

AC power to the radios. The electrical generator also powers the fire extinguisher.

 

In parallel with these systems, we are currently working on the cockpit instruments and controls.

Questo e un aereo che mi piace un botto, sono piuttosto ansioso di vederlo!

BTW il nuovo dm model da quel che ho provato e davvero fantastico

 

Concordo, una macchina decisamente interessante sia per le qualità belliche che per quelle tecniche, basta solo considerare che è bimotore e biposto, ci sarà da divertirsi non poco, ovviamente per me un'acquisto scontato....

 

Il nuovo DM è veramente eccellente, il 18 c.m finalmente dovrebbe essere disponibile per tutti, vediamo....

DCS: Mosquito FB MK.VI

 

Our first new product of 2021 will be the impressive Mosquito. This will be our first multi-engine, multi-crew World War II aircraft for DCS World, and it will mark an important capability for future projects. The Mosquito is planned to be released into early access by the end of the 1st quarter of 2021.

Mossie - Early Access

All systems and components have been modelled in excruciating detail and include the recent cooling system updates that were made to DCS: P-47D Thunderbolt.

  • Early Access Features;
    • High-quality external 3D model
    • 6 Degree of Freedom fully clickable cockpit with latest visual effects
    • Flight Dynamics based on official reports, our own CFD research and pilot feedback
    • Full Fuel system and optional external tanks
    • Full electrical system
    • Full hydraulic and pneumatic system
    • Propeller feathering

 

  • Early Access Armament:
    • 4 British Browning .303 machine guns
    • 4 Hispano 20mm guns
    • 250lbs and 500lbs bombs in the bomb bay and under each wing

The damage model for the Mossie considers the internal wood structure of the airplane and uses each internal element of the aircraft - oil, air, hydraulic and cooling systems, engine, throttle, trim, and the airframes main strength spars and stringers to calculate the visual damage.

We are now able to consider all these factors, which in turn enables us to more accurately simulate damage to the airframe and the effects on the flight model. For example, damage to the wing skin will lead to a decrease in the lift and cause more drag, damage to the spar will cause strength reduction and potentially wing snap under certain strains.

When the Mossie becomes available in Early Access, we will be considering feedback from the community and working on the next stages of development.

  • Features coming after Early Access:
    • Rockets armament
    • Radio units T1154 (transmitter) & R1155 (receiver)
    • The historical accurate navigation system for WWII aircraft
    • Controllable AI navigator and radio operator

Mosquito FB Mk. VI - Development Progress

DCS: Mosquito FB Mk.VI is progressing well. The cockpit is near final; we are adding details to instrumentation colour, reflections, and colour balance. Work on the radio transmitter T1154.B and receiver R1155 devices, as well as radio communications for VoiceChat, is also approaching completion. The external model is almost finished, and texturing is near completion. To keep you informed on the development process, we have taken the opportunity to prepare some In Development screenshots for you.

We have improved gauge visibility by refining the center and side panel colour gamma values. The same pre-calculated ray tracing technology used in DCS: Mi-24P Hind has also been added. Glass, plastic covers, luminescent dials, and exposed wiring provide a more realistic look and feel.

We are also working on final improvements to the external model, and we will be sharing progress with you soon. We are excited to see the finish approaching, and look forward to seeing this iconic fighter bomber in DCS World.

DCS: Mosquito FB Mk. VI - Development Report

We are improving the external model using newly acquired blueprints. Improved 3D modelling techniques have allowed us to include finer details. As a result, the smallest rivets, welds and fabric seams are visible.

At Early Access stage DCS: Mosquito FB Mk.VI will have different skins available, including those used in the famous Operation Jericho. The remainder of the work will be focused on finalising the bulged bomb-bay fairing and hydraulic bomb doors, the wing pylons and external fuel tanks. This will allow DCS: Mosquito FB Mk.VI to carry two 500 lb bombs internally (with fins cropped to fit) plus another two under the wings.

Sono molto indeciso se prenderlo adesso o meno...

é un biposto ma non ho capito come si gestirà il secondo membro dell'equipaggio.

Ci sarà una cosa tipo Jester? non credo come quello che stanno sviluppando sull'Hind, ma, che io sappia, non hanno detto niente in proposito.

 

Qualcuno ha maggiori informazioni?

Mosquito Mini-Update


Welcome to Mossie Monday, the first in a series of videos covering an introduction to the aircraft in early access (EA).

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.

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-Suiza 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 in service at the time to engage it.

Early FB Mk VI fighter bombers were actually modified NF Mk II night fighters, which were originally equipped with Merlin 21 and 23 engines. In DCS you will be flying a production variant, and your aircraft will be fitted with Merlin 25 engines.

The Mossie Mk VI can carry up to 2,000 lbs of ordinance. The bomb bay can house either Two 250 lb. or two 500 lb. General purpose or medium capacity short fin bombs. One 250 lb. or 500 lb. bomb may also carried under each wing. If wing mounted ordinance is not required, the addition of wing drop tanks can be used to extend the aircrafts range. In 1944 it's ordinance capacity was extended further to include, four rocket projectiles (R.Ps) that could be mounted under each wing.

During World War 2 the mosquito was not only flown by pilots of the RAF, but included those displaced when their country was occupied and pilots from the commonwealth. Countries include but are not limited to Australia, Canada, Norway, and New Zealand.

The Mosquito was made famous owing to its participation in daring low level intruder raids. Some of the best examples are:

1. Operation Carthage an attack on the Gestapo headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark .
2. Operation Jericho a mission to free French resistance fighters from the Amiens prison in German occupied France.
3. Operation Oyster the bombing of the Phillips factory in Eindhoven manufacturing radio tubes and valves for the German war effort during the occupation of Holland.
4. and let's not forget the raid on the radio station in downtown Berlin, designed to coincide with Herman Goring's speech to the German nation.

In summary the Mosquito as an airframe was probably the world's first truly multi role aircraft. Adapting to roles in an ever changing wartime environment such as Bomber, Night fighter, Fighter bomber, path finder, Anti U-boat and shipping, V1 interception or diver missions and Photo-reconnaissance. A true wonder that you will be able to fly in the DCS skies shortly.

Join me for the next instalment of Mossie Monday where we will run through the start up procedure. Thank you for joining me and Chow for now.
