“Armed with a rocket launcher and nerves of steel, this unit specializes in destroying tanks.”

Bazooka is a standard level 1 Bazooka Infantry unlocked in Global Age. It can be upgraded to Heavy Bazooka.

General information[]

Their high damage against Defending Tanks, Buildings and Walls makes them useful to get fast time elapse in the World War battle. Because they have a short range of fire compare to most of Defensive Buildings and they can't fire through the walls, they are better deployed with other short range troops to protect them

Historical Description[]

Early prototypes for a tube-fired rocket were developed during WW II by Robert Goddard, who was often considered the father of modern rocketry. The modern form of the weapon was developed at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland just as WW II was heating up. Although technically known as a recoil-less rocket anti-tank weapon, it soon acquired the nickname "bazooka" due to its resemblance to a trombone-like musical instrument of the same name.

Although technically known as a recoilless rocket anti-tank weapon, it soon acquired the nickname 'bazooka' due to its resemblance to a trombone-like musical instrument of the same name. Initially monopolized by Allied powers, the Germans quickly reverse-engineered some captured models, enlarged the warhead, and deployed a much-improved version dubbed the 'Panzerschreck.' The smoke trail generated by firing the weapon was a major liability for the infantry using the bazooka in combat, and those crews suffered high casualties as a result.
