The Battle of Britain was an aerial campaign of the German Luftwaffe against the British Royal Air Force. The Luftwaffe's mission was to cripple the Royal Air Force and set Britain up for an invasion, codenamed Operation Sealion.
This battle is featured as a map for Battlefield 1942, included as a bonus in the version 1.45 patch. The map is a simplified version of the battle, with Luftwaffe forces facing the RAF.
There is no difference between the modes.
As the player might expect, this map is almost entirely based on aerial combat. In fact, the map is unique in that victory is not reached by capturing flags. Indeed, there are no flags to capture both in Singleplayer and Multiplayer mode. The map centres around a set of objectives - four radar towers and a factory.
As the German tickets tick down, they must damage and eventually destroy all of these objectives to win before their tickets reach zero, doing so then reduces Allied tickets. The radars and factory can be repaired by allied engineers at any point until they are destroyed completely. The Germans have an airfield, with two spawn points. The British have two airfields, all uncapturable.
If the Luftwaffe destroy all objectives, specifically the factory, the RAF will be defeated from a rapid ticket bleed. If the RAF successfully defend all objectives, again specifically the factory, the Luftwaffe will be defeated from ticket bleed.
