🚀 Rockets

Various Nations have different rocket payloads that can be used for their aircraft. Several aircraft can also be equipped with Torpedoes or Bombs. Rockets have a variety of uses, the most common being for ground attack purposes. Examples of rockets for this purpose are the British RP-3 rocket and the American HVAR rocket. They generally have good penetration and do decent internal damage, but are inaccurate and require a direct hit to be effective. There are heavier rockets, like the Tiny Tim and the Russian S21 rockets, which do considerable damage if they hit, often resulting in one shot kills.

Rockets can also be used in an anti aircraft role. Rockets like the RS-82 can be set to explode at a certain distance from your plane. These are called air burst rockets and can be highly devastating to enemy aircraft, particularly slow flying bombers. Even huge targets like the BV 238 stand no chance against a volley of air burst rockets.
