About the De Havilland Mosquito FB Mk.VI/NF Mk.II The de Havilland Mosquito made of wood was designed based on high-speed bomber shaking off fighter . The design of the Mosquito was gotten into shape in 1939. Two of Rolls Merlin engines were selected as the source of power and the wood was used as the material of this fuselage. The parts with the metal were only the parts of the periphery of the engine and the landing gear. At the first time, the Air Ministry was passive adopting the Mosquito because of wooden and no machine guns.

However the Mosquito made a maiden flight with the maximum speed of 630km when the Spitfire had the maximum speed of 580km at those time. Therefore a lot of Mosquito were suddenly requested. After many types of the Mosquito were produced, Night-Fighter Mk. II armed with 7.7mm machine guns on its nose and A.I.Mk.IV radar made an appearance. This Mosquito brought its ability into full play in attacking an airfield and intercepting raiding bombers. Also Fighting-Bomber Mk.VI armed with four of 225kg bombs and eight of rocket bombs was arranged as the actual fighting in Mar. 1943. This type played havoc with the land forces, the battleships and the U-boat.

Furthermore it was active in attacking the railroad and its bridge at Burmese front line, giving a blow to the Japanese army. The Mosquito s wooden structure was strong against being shot, therefore it held an established position from the pilots with the special mission.
