Air raid

The bombing run as seen in Battlefield 1943

The Air Raid Bunker is an invulnerable concrete shelter that is used to call in bombing runs in Battlefield 1943

Bunker

The bunker itself can be found on every map except Coral Sea (since there is nearly no infantry based combat). It can be found on the "Airfield" flags of Wake Island and Iwo Jima and the "Outpost" flag of Guadalcanal.

It can only be used as soon as any team has captured. From there, any player from either faction can activate the air raid.

A player inside the bunker is completely invulnerable and is so until the bombing run has been used. Often, enemy players tend to

wait for another play to come out of the bunker to get a kill.

Bombers

The bombers themselves can be controlled by the player, but their maneuverability is very limited. One should choose a target as

soon as possible for the best shot. The player can also fire at will and can switch to first person for an accurate view of what the player is going to bomb. Once the bombing is triggered, all things in the middle and surroundings of the affected area will most likely be obliterated. Trees, in particular, have their branches bent upwards and appear completely burnt.

The bombers can pack a punch, but they're very vulnerable to fire from AA guns and fighters, especially since they're big and slow. The raid can still be triggered as long as a single bomber survives, but the raids performance will be significantly diminished.

If the player is on the USMC, B-25 Mitchells will be sent whilst if the player is on the IJN, Mitsubishi G4Ms will be sent. Their only difference is their appearance.
