MOSQUITO PHOTO-RECON & RADAR – UPGRADE PACK B
INCLUDES FOUR MODEL TYPES AND FOUR LIVERIES AS WELL AS TWO NEW LIVERIES FOR THE BASE PACK AND ONE NEW MODEL FOR UPGRADE PACK A.
(Note – you will need our Mosquito add-on to be able to add these additional packs.)
PR. Mk XVI
NS777 Photo-reconnaissance machine of 140 Squadron RAF, December 1944.
‘K’ 1 Swedish Air Force (three-blade props) with solid nose. The Mk30 Night Fighter variant had a radar array fitted in the nose. The array was serviced by opening side hatches and the nose cone. Some examples were produced with a clear Perspex dome over the array. Mosquitoes were formidable night fighters, aided by surprisingly effective (though primitive by today’s standards) radar equipment.
NF. Mk II (‘bow and arrow’ radar)
‘TW-Z DZ601’ of 141 Squadron RAF from February 1944 when this machine destroyed a Heinkel HE 177. The Mk II retained the machine guns and cannon in the nose, adding a ‘bow and arrow’ array. The radar equipment was also far simpler than the later NF. Mk 30.
‘CW 413’ TW270 Royal Navy. A standard FB. Mk VI that had strengthened sides and a tail hook along with smaller wheels, stiffened suspension and a radar thimble dome added to the nose. The TR. 33 also had folding wings and could deliver a conventional bomb load or an Mk18 Torpedo, carried on special strap hangers attached to the door exteriors.
ADDITIONAL LIVERIES FOR BASE PACK
As well as the new aircraft and liveries, this upgrade pack also contains extra liveries for the main Mosquito package (DVD-ROM or Download version).

‘AZ-A DZ601’ Series II of Number 627 Squadron, No5 group, flown by Fg Off J F Thomson DFC , RNZAF , and Fg Off B E B Harris, Woodhall Spa , 28 May 1944

ADDITIONAL AIRCRAFT FOR UPGRADE PACK A
As well as the new aircraft and liveries, this upgrade pack also contains an extra aircraft for Special Ops Upgrade Pack A. This aircraft automatically becomes available to fly if you already own pack A or if you purchase it at a later date.
B. Mk IV
‘XD-G DK296’ series II of Number 139 Squadron, RAF, flown by Wg Cdr Peter Shand and Plt Off C D Handley, RAF Marham, early 1943.
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.
