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

The M1 Bazooka is a standard level 3 Bazooka Infantry unlocked in Atomic Age. Its predecessor is Heavy Bazooka and can be upgraded to Elite Bazooka.

General Information Edit

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 Edit

When WW 2 broke out, American anti-tank weaponry lagged behind advances in German armor. The success of Third Reich tank divisions in the invasion of France convinced the US general staff that their hardware needed an upgrade. Thus, the M1 Bazooka was born. The rocket launcher required two men to operate, a loader and a firer. Though it may not seem like a fineness weapon, the Bazooka had to be precisely aimed at a weak point on an enemy tank in order to be effective. Its simple design kept it in US service through the Korean War and the early stages of the Vietnam War.
