The de Havilland Mosquito was first introduced in November 15, 1941. It served primarily as a high-speed, unarmed fast bomber equipped with a twin engine. What made the Mosquito very different from its contemporaries is that it was made largely out of wood. This is why it was known as the "Wooden Wonder." Pilots of the aircraft also fondly referred to it as "Mossie." By November 1940, test flights showed the Mosquito reaching top speeds of 630km/h. This resulted in additional orders of 150 units. In 1941, the Mosquito PR Mk. I was first deployed. The B Mk.IV bomber, on the other hand, was deployed in 1942. Throughout the war, the Mosquitoes displayed their ability to handle heavy bombs and equipment while delivering precise low-altitude attacks. The PR Mk. IV variant, which served as a reconnaissance plane, was instrumental in discovering the German Battleship Tirpitz in the Arctic Circle. It was also able to scout V2 rocket facilities during WWII.
