    Where is Mossie, IMHO it was a better NF and LR fighter than Beau, as a strafer its more difficult to say, air cooled engines were a plus in that work but anyway Mossie FB VI could carry more bombs than Beau.
    As pure interceptor Spit VIII and XIV
    low nad medium altitude fighter Tempest, which had also better range
    carrier fighter as for CAP work Seafire L.F. III
    if more range was needed Firefly or simply buy something better from USA.

    Spitfire without a doubt.

    The much newer Tempest is superior but it arrived too late to make a significant contribution towards the war effort. It was the Spitfire which got the job done for Britain.
