Blood Red Skies: De Havilland Mosquito Squadron

Blood Red Skies is a 1/200th scale tabletop miniatures game, designed by Andy Chambers, where you command formations of fighter aircraft in battle. Action in the game is fast-paced - with six or more planes per side, a thrilling dogfight can be fought in forty-five minutes or less.


The hugely versatile and high performance de Havilland DH98 Mosquito was unquestionably the greatest contribution made by the de Havilland Aircraft Company to the success of the RAF during the Second World War.

Its innovative design made use of a wooden 'sandwich' construction, drawing upon the experience gained from the company's pre-war high-speed DH88 Comet Racer and the streamlined DH91 Albatross airliner. Such was the Mosquitoe's popularity with pilots that it soon became affectionately known as ‘The Wooden Wonder’. Originally conceived as a high-flying, unarmed photo-reconnaissance aircraft, the Mosquito saw service in wide-ranging roles from bomber / fighter-bomber, night-fighter, anti-shipping strikes, trainer, torpedo bomber and even as a target tug.

On entry into service, the ‘Mossie’ was an immediate success and became well-known for its bombing, pathfinder and precision, low-level strike capabilities. Wartime development resulted in a wide range of variants and a significant increase in bomb load capability and range after the incorporation of a larger bomb bay and auxiliary fuel tanks.
