Battlefield 1942[]

The AW52 is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII expansion, as the Allied experimental jet fighter. Being a flying wing aircraft, it has a large wingspan and thin profile. Despite being jet-powered, it doesn't fly exceptionally fast, but is easily maneuverable. The engine can be heard almost everywhere on the map.

It has a single pilot seat. The pilot, apart from flying the vehicle, also has its weapons at his disposal; these include unguided rockets and bombs. The rocket pods can fire in four-round salvos, after which they have to be reloaded. The bombs can be dropped 2 at a time.

The AW52 is the Allied counterpart to the HO-229.
