Just finished watching this video released by the de Haviland Aircraft Museum about the Tsetse, complete with interviews from a couple of the men that crewed them.



I think it would be a good GAA at T-6 for the British, with the extra armour plates it carried and that Molins 6 pounder (57mm) and apparently a pair of 500lb bombs carried internally. (Sources vary on the 500 lb bombs)

I nominate the 190 F as premium German GA!

Mosquito was mostly wood wasn't it?  I know about the extra armor for the engines but a wooden GA?  Take away Mosquitos speed and she was firewood.

That was the point.


She was a fast strike aircraft.

A good 100mph faster than the ground attack aircraft of the time.


    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent
