The Mosquito is a gas-filled armored balloon automation armed with a rapid fire machinegun. It essentially acts as a gun turret, but with the ability to freely move around in the air.
Mosquitos are generally extremely weak, and will explode after a few well-placed rounds. They are particularly susceptible to the shotgun, which should make them explode in one or two hits if you're close enough (particularly when upgraded).
Mosquitos are also summonable at regular points in the game to help out with battles. To summon one, look around in the sky and use Elizabeth's Tear power to bring one in from an alternate world and wreak havoc upon your enemies.
Since they're automated machines it is also possible to use the Possession Vigor to seize control of a Mosquito.
