Focke-Wulf Ta-154 Moskito

Did the Focke-Wulf Ta-154s shot any enemy planes down in combat both day and night? I have not read any books about Ta-154 being in action against the enemy.

Apparently a few did see combat.

Re: Focke-Wulf Ta-154 Moskito

"Mosquitos über Berlin: Nachtjagd mit Messerschmitt Bf109 und Me 262", Andreas Zapf, does mention operational sorties flown on Ta 154s. In a quick search I found only two: February 8 and 11, 1945 (p. 241 & 244). IIRC there were more and they all ended w/o success due to mechanical problems (failure of radar set above all).
HTH, Richard

That is correct - some of them did see combat while assigned to NJG 3 at Stade airfield. To my knowledge, none of them scored an aerial victory.
