Flown by specialised squadrons, the Mosquito matured into the best British night fighter of World War 2 thanks to the fitment of ever-improving airborne radar, which allowed its crews to hit night intruders and German night fighters alike with speed and the devastating firepower. Its success in combat can be measured by the fact that most leading RAF, Commonwealth and American night fighter aces scored the bulk of their kills in the Mosquito. The aircraft's range and striking power also led to its deployment by RAF Coastal Command as a very effective long -range fighter, and the Mosquito was also deployed overseas in both the night fighter, long-range fighter and strike roles. In total, some 59 pilots became aces flying the Mosquito.
