Updated August 14th, 2003: This new iteration of the Battle of Britain map is to pre-empt an issue that would have arisen with the release of the 1.45 patch. Please download and install overwriting your current Battle of Britain install.

In the new Battle of Britain map for Battlefield 1942, the Germans must disable the Royal Air Force's (RAF) four coastal radar towers as well as the Harwich Weapons Factory. Protected by several anti-aircraft batteries, the factory will be no easy target for the Luftwaffe. If the British can defend the objectives until the German tickets run out, they can wrest victory from the jaws of defeat.

To make it more interesting, The Battle of Britain map brings two powerful new weapons to the fray. Players on the German side can unleash the devastating attack of the Junkers Ju88 (see image), a heavy bomber used in every theater of WWII. This versatile aircraft holds a crew of four, one pilot/bomber and three gunners, making it a formidable force in the air. Balancing the odds, the British get the all-new Radar Tower (see image) to help counter this attack. When you enter a radar tower, your game map includes a radar sweep that detects any vehicle above the radar. But be wary -- the radar does not sweep the skies below the tower, creating a significant gap through which German bombers can make a stealthy approach.

NOTE: THIS MAP WILL ONLY WORK WITH PATCH 1.4 INSTALLED. IF YOU HAVE NOT YET PATCHED YOUR GAME WITH 1.4, THE MAP WILL NOT BE PLAYABLE.

England's Darkest Hour, Your Finest Moment Great Britain’s mighty empire is on the brink of collapse as wave after wave of German Luftwaffe bombing raids take their toll on the coast of England. The Axis goal is to soften British defenses in preparation for an eventual, all-out invasion. Only the brave men of the Royal Air Force stand in the way.

MadModder's Review

Dice's last official release was Aberdeen. Not a bad map but not special in any way. With The Battle of Britain I'm happy to say it seems they've reached for a slightly loftier goal. With this map they have included some nice little tweaks but nothing that the BF community modders haven't already done. Still, it is nice to see Dice actually trying to go for something a litle different. In The Battle of Britain, the jolly ol' boys from England find themselves defending 4 coastal radar stations and one factory from wave after wave of incoming Luftwaffe aircraft. This map introduces the Junkers JU88 which seats 4 and carries a nice compliment of bombs. We also get jeeps with horns (there is somthing timeless about pulling a hit and run with the horn blowing) and of course the destoyable radar installations (which produce a mini-map "radar sweep" much like what happens in DC) and tank factory. The map is well textured, well laid out and a nice new sky box adds to the fluff. The only down side is that if you get on a server full of noobs you will learn to hate this map. It requires total team work no matter which side you are on. I myself find that this makes for a great map and a great battle if you are playing with people who know how to play. If you find yourself surrounded by smacktards I might suggest surrender because chances are you are going to die over and over again! God save the Queen...Good job Dice!
