Attack On Pearl Harbor (video Game) - Aircraft


Aircraft can be separated into three distinct categories.

  • Fighters include the A6M Zero, the P-40 Warhawk, the F4U Corsair, and the Supermarine Seafire. They are highly manoeuvrable and sport a single rocket as a secondary weapon. They are best used against less manoeuvrable divebombers and torpedo bombers. They are also the only type of aircraft that do not sport a rear gunner.
  • Dive-bombers include the SBD Dauntless, the Nakajima J1N "Gekko", and the Aichi D3A. Carrying a trio of bombs, they are most effective against surface targets and ships. A white targeting pipper on the ground aids the player in placing their bombs. An AI-controlled rear gunner will assist the player in keeping enemy fighters away.
  • Torpedo bombers include the TBM Avenger and the Nakajima B5N "Kate". Both drop a single torpedo that can travel underwater and strike enemy ships from long range. Unlike dive-bombers, which can attack both sea and land targets, torpedoes have no effect when dropped on anything on the land. A rear gunner will aid the player in making torpedo runs. Dropping a torpedo on the deck of a ship seems to have the same effect.

Non-flyable aircraft include the B-25 Mitchell, seen in the campaign. They are heavily armoured and sport multiple rear gun emplacements, making them difficult targets. There are also various other warships, ranging from aircraft carriers to battleships, destroyers, and landing craft (not included in Dogfight mode, minus for the freighters in the Philippines, the Battleship Row at Pearl Harbor, and three battleships anchored at Darwin). There are also tanks, warehouses, halftracks, and various other ground targets to destroy. B-25s only appear in the missions Defend Japan (Japanese campaign), Escort B25s to Tokyo (both runs, US campaign), and the Doolittle Raid.
