I know that in previous battlefield games you could call in artillery strikes.

Are artillery/air strikes still possible and how do you do it?

No artillery or air strike in BFBC2. You'll have to only rely on the guys who are there! :)

But you can also rely on your friends in helicopters and tanks so, pretty much more devastating than an artillery strike sometimes! :)

What about the mortar strike? – Mark Rogers Jan 4 '11 at 0:59
Right, but the mortar strike is just a gadget for the Recon class. It's not like the air/artillery strike of other games, available to all players when on a killing frenzy. – LudoMC Jan 4 '11 at 6:37

There is no official artillery strike in Bad Company 2, but the mortar strike is a weaker version of the same thing. The mortar strike which as LudoMC says is a gadget that unlocks for the Recon class after you've gained enough points.
