Bomber Raid (ボンバーレイド) is a Sega Master System game developed by Sanritsu and published by Sega in 1989. It is notable for being the last Master System game to be released in Japan. It is a shoot-'em-up game, where the player pilots a small "freedom fighter" aircraft, destoying other planes and ships.

Game's cover is misleading as it shows a modern jet plane (which looks strangely like SR-71 Blackbird, which wasn't even a fighter plane) but in game, players take control of a World War 2 era propeller driven fighter.

During development the game was known as Battle Wings. Activision may have intended to release the game under the title Super River Raid (tying it into an earlier game of theirs).[5]
