As expected EA has now released the free Battle of Britain map for BattleField 1942. The objective-based map includes the German Junkers Ju88 heavy bombers and a host of British coastal defenses, including squadrons of Spitfires and the newly developed radar defense towers. The Germans must disable the RAF's coastal defense towers and the Harwich Weapons Factory for Operation Sea Lion to have a chance of success. To win, the Germans must destroy the five objectives before their ticket count hits zero, while the British must defend the objectives until the German tickets run out. The new map requires the latest v1.4 patch installed. Read more for download links ...

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.
