I came across the Caen map the other day and noticed the Mosquito on it got replaced. I guess the new introduced bomber type is the historically more correct one and probably fine by itself, too, but unfortunately it's a pain to fly without mods for the obvious reason of not having a cockpit and so on.
There's still the Boston to bomb with so I guess it's fine, just wanted to make sure that this fact is being taken into consideration for future map changes.

Yes, without the Boston I wouldn't have replaced the FB with the B.

The thing with the B is its quite a lot slower than the FB which makes it easier to intercept, don't forget it has no armament apart from the bombs so its like a death trap once enemy fighters are around.

Well it's faster than an Emil but if there's a Friedrich present it's dead meat.

Maybe with some help of the escort fighters and a bit of luck they can get back to base in almost one piece...

because there are FW190's on the map ;D
seriously, its damn hard to survive in the mossie B. it has no guns, its even a lot slower than the FB mossie.

But there simply were no FB Mosquitoes in service in 1942. They started to appear in February 1943.
