Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit
|Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2|
The Precision Airstrike allows the player to call in three F-15E Strike Eagles if playing as Task Force 141, Rangers, Navy SEALs, or MiG-29's if playing as the OpFor, Militia or Spetsnaz on a bombing run at the location of their choice.
Unlike the Airstrike in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the player also gets to choose which direction the jets come from. Bombs dropped by Precision Airstrike are effective at taking out groups of players, especially near spawn points. It is also extremely effective to have a UAV in the air, as the player can locate large clusters of enemies in their strike on their own control point to kill attackers.
Inversely, players can also call one in on the enemy CP to soften defenses for a quick Shock and Awe style capture. This same strategy can be used when playing Demolition for protecting or softening up bomb sites that are outdoors.

|Strike Package Reward|
Precision Airstrike is a six point (five with Hardline) Strike Chain reward, which is part of the Assault Strike Chain in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It works like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's Precision Airstrike.
It will not trail a numerous number of bombs behind. Rather, the circle indicator shows where the strike will hit. The directional indicator is only to allow the player to escape SAM turrets and Trophy Systems in a known vicinity. The same spot will be hit multiple times over a space of 5 seconds, and the bombs will spread just slightly.
Call of Duty OnlineEdit

- Unlike most killstreaks, an enemy Precision Airstrike will not be announced to the player, except in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
- A player can complete the Afterburner challenge if one calls in two airstrikes in one match.
