About the Ta 154

For a time, the British Mosquito night bomber was virtually untouchable, with one squadron losing just one aircraft in their first 600 sorties. This inspired Germany’s own version, the Moskito. Notably, the Moskito used wooden components for its airframe just like its British namesake. It was named after Kurt Tank, the chief designer of the Fw190A, and was known as the Ta154. It was produced by Focke-Wulf late in World War II. Only a few were produced and proved to have less impressive performance than the prototypes.
