Yet, you said you voted for the Mossie. The Lanc was a great and capable bomber, no doubt, but if I wanted better odds for survival, the Mossie is the obvious choice. Fast, manueverable and durable, the Mossie fulfilled many roles very well.
the Lanc and Halibag were the stalemate of the RAF bomber command in all positions and that is true. But it is the Mossie that was the fastest and most agile in performing it's tasks almost indifferent to what the Luftwaffe could throw up at them
Fast as hell, great armament - would you rather zip on the deck at 400 mph and avoid getting hit or be up in this 4 engine bomber just waiting for an 88 to incinerate you, or have a butcher bird cut you in two like a chain saw?!?
I went for the Lancaster (yes Lanc you read this right!) The reason I went for the Lanc and not the Mossie is because when I think of bombers I dont think of the Mossie. Now before one of you guys goes ranting off about how the Mossie was a bomber, I know it was a bomber. But when I think of bombers I think of the Heavies like the Lancaster, B-17, and B-24. So for that reason of the Bomber Command Bombers I go for the Lancaster.
Makes sense, Adler. If given a choice today which I would prefer to fly if given that chance, I would still take the Mosquito. I have always loved that airplane. I like the Lanc too, but not as much as the Mossie.
