de Havilland Mosquito FB XVIII in flight
Here we see the de Havilland Mosquito FB XVIII, designed as an anti-submarine and armed with a 57mm Molins anti-shipping gun. The barrel of the gun can be seen under the nose of the aircraft. Very few Mosquito FB XVIIIs were built as the gun proved to be less effective than standard rockets.
 Mosquito Fighter/ Fighter-Bomber Units of World War 2, Martin Bowman. The second of three books looking the RAF career of the Mosquito covers its use as a night fighter, first on the defensive in the skies over Britain, and then as an intruder over Occupied Europe and Germany, and finishing with a look at the "Mosquito Panic" [see more]
