What was the main bomber used by allies in World War 2?
This is difficult to answer, because the term 'main' bomber is a little vague. I don't know the exact number for each type of bomber used by Britain and the US, but can offer a personal opinion. The Lancaster was "...the monarch of night bombers in Europe" for Britain. The B-17, B-24, and B-29 were the three heavy bombers most in service for the US. The B-17 in Europe, the B-24 in the Pacific (long range) and B-29 (atomic bomber) were used where most needed. Hope this helps.
The Germans and the allies had bombers in WWI, but not in great numbers. The bomber came into its own in WWII.

Bomber bases were used on WWII because the airplanes back then had a limited range. Avrage about 1200 miles so in order to bomb targets farther than that, then you need to build a bomber base a little closer to the target.

The de Havilland Mosquito was a high-speed, twin-engine, multi-role aeroplane used during world war two by the RAF and other Commonwealth air forces. Although originally conceived as an unarmed bomber, the first Mosquitos off the production line were photo reconnaissance aircraft and it quickly proved to be the best PR aircraft of the war.
