I thought I read that there was a particular reason why Mosquitoes couldn't be modelled to be armed with in rockets in IL2. Is this true or have I imagined it?

No reason why it couldn't except we have a 1942 variant and I believe they weren't armed with rockets until 1943. Possibly we could be looking at more Mosquito variants in the future...

Personally I'd love the rocket armed version as that's what I always remember from the videos I've seen about the Mosquito. Rocket attacks in the Fjords of Norway. Also some Mossies had that 57mm Mollins cannon so the possibilities are out there!

Thanks. It was probably the time period restriction that I remembered. I have a friend that is a great champion of the Mosquito and I made a fjord mission for him to fly. His one point was that he would have loved rockets.
He makes a lot of missions for CFS3. They have the rockets - but no fjords!

A rocket armed Mossie IS available 'somewhere else' .One of my IL2 1946 install includes a Mosquito Coastal Command version with a 8x60lbs rocket and 2x250lbs bomb loadout option.Sorry but mod discussion in any depth not allowed .Check PMs.
