The Republic-Ford JB-2 was a United States copy of the German V-1 Flying Bomb. Developed in 1944, and planned to be used in the United States invasion of Japan (Operation Downfall), the JB-2 was never used in combat. It was the most successful of the United States Army Air Forces Jet Bomb (JB) projects (JB-1 through JB-10) during World War II. Postwar, the JB-2 played a significant role in the development of more advanced surface-to-surface tactical missile systems.
The JB-2 is featured in Battlefield V as a Squad Reinforcement, that can be called in to attack a target a squad leader once enough score has been accumulated. It is the British equivalent of the Wehrmacht V-1 Rocket.
- According to Battlefield V Dev Talks: The Audio of Battlefield V, the sound of the JB-2 Rocket (and the V-1 Rocket) flying was recorded using a rocket-powered snowmobile driving along a track at speeds surpassing 230 km/h.
