    Mosquito Comba Wings Over Europe PC CD ROM Add-on CFS3

    I have been trying to contact AbacusPub https://www.abacuspub.com/about-abacus/ about permissions to use their mosquitos but no joy. I sort of suspect they aren't arround any more. The only name I see there is Jerry Fish. Anyone know more?

    Didn't know there was a payware version of the Mosquito. The ones we have here at SOH are fantastic. Why can't you use them ? Regards, Scott

    I am using a lot of them but some aren't available except in the pw add on. Just as I have to use the FP me410.

    Most of the mossies are

    the cockpits are not very good in most of the models. What versions are you really needing?

    mosquito_xix from pw add on AFAIK (Similar to NF. Mk XVII, but based on NF. Mk XIII with Merlin 25 engines)

    Mk XVI/B Mk XVI, similar to respective Mk IX models, with pressurised cockpit. 433 PR XVI, 400 B XVI (powered either by Merlin72/73 or 76/77). Most B. Mk XVI with bulged bomb bay door for 4,000 lb bomb. Max weight (B. Mk XVI) 25,200 lb.
    "The B Mk XVI was powered by the same variations as the B.IX. All B Mk XVIs were capable of being converted to carry the 4,000 lb (1,800 kg) "Cookie". The two-stage powerplants were added along with a pressurised cabin. DZ540 first flew on 1 January 1944. The prototype was converted from a IV (402 built). The next variant, the B Mk XX, was powered by Packard Merlins 31 and 33s. It was the Canadian version of the IV. Altogether, 245 were built. The B Mk XVI had a maximum speed of 408 mph (657 km/h), an economical cruise speed of 295 mph (475 km/h) at 20,000 ft, and 350 mph (560 km/h) at 30,000 ft, ceiling of 37,000 ft (11,000 m), a range of 1,485 nmi (2,750 km), and a climb rate of 2,800 ft per minute (14 m/s). The type could carry 4,000 lb (1,800 kg) of bombs."

    Used by 105 PF, 109PF, 139 PF, 571PF, 692PF. Sqns
    We have a Mkix, (Mosquito MkIX EG-F HX422. was operated by 487 Squadron, Royal New Zealand Air Force during 1943), but I think that was a stand alone of the pw Mkix, as otherwise the xdps are basically the exact same.

    NF. Mk XVII don't have, but "As NF. Mk XIII, but fitted with US radar (UK designation AI Mk X." we can use XIII instead I suppose. Used by 21, 25, 68, 85 Sqns
