    The Mossie was a recce/light bomber that was a nightfighter, the Lightening was a fighter that could carry bombs.
    You had the NF30 version in your original post, how would it fare against the FBVI, BIX or a PRMk32?

    The Bf 110 can not even be compared to the Mossie or the P-38. To attempt to do so is pointless...

    Having said that, there is allready a thread to compare the P-38 to the Mossie.

    Thread closed.
