Default Re: AA Defense

A bit more real life than game world but AAA professionals consider upsetting the attack (missed target, aborted runs...etc) to be successful deployment of assets, not just actually bringing down an attacker. I don't think the game has attackers avoiding AAA and SAMs and spoiling their attack as much as in real life. In the US deployment in Vietnam the lead plane was often a decoy to draw AA assets and would abort and evade while the 2nd plane made the attack.
Does you AAA make many aborts or misses?

I consider the "abort" as an aircraft receiving damage but not shot down, since any aircraft that receives even 1hp of damage permanently leaves the battlefield.

I'm going to try again and see if I can hold the ZSU to fire on closer targets as it seems they target the planes far away.

The Strela is somewhat useful the 14.5mm is useless.
Don't let your AA guns shoot at max range. That's a waste of ammo.
Varies vs Helos for sure reduce the range to draw them in.
Planes however get lead time each consecutive shot is more accurate so hit chance goes up.
Therefore effective so long as flight path is not all at far range.

I rather have the planes approach and have higher chance of hitting them, than shoot at them from afar and have very limited chance of hitting them.
Plus shooting them several times without hitting them gives away the position of the AA guns.
I prefer to have them shoot at most at 75% of their range.
Depending on various parameters.

A fine ytube wargaming channel "The Mack" is currently playing this scenario.

Give him a sub and watch his videos also SPWWII material there.

Feels good doesn't it? Nothing like challenging scenarios to bring out the best in a player regardless of experience.

Had a gander at Mack's videos. Seems he benefited from your advice and got a marginal on his first try. Much obliged for the link. Cheers!

Always the best when you pull off a near thing ... in a game anyway

RL I prefer my victories extremely lopsided.
