The Airstrike will first give you a bird's eye view of the map while your cursor now becomes a big red target. Clicking once confirms the location. Then, your cursor becomes a blue arrow which spins around the targeted area which then dictates in which directions the drone will fly at. Clicking again confirms the direction.
After a short delay, the drone will fly in and drop bombs where you have planted the target and in the direction of the arrow.
Despite the rumours and the many deserted military bases and camps, the military is actually still waging war against the zombies, albeit with fewer men. Their first action that potentially changed the tides of the apocalypse was the recapture of many factories, allowing equipment, explosives, and bullets to be made in bulk.
The military then started to make contact with survivors, giving them whatever excess equipment and resources they have. Recently they have started using drone strikes again, with some connections to the system being given out to trustworthy survivors.
