Default Flak issue

Flak units seem not to use their armor piercing rounds against air units.

What are the rounds there for ?

They stop shooting air targets after depleting their he rounds.

if they have AP rounds, those are used against AFV, obviously.

I was in the mind they are for heavily armored planes such as shturmovik and such.

Have a hard time to penetrate their armor with he rounds.

I am looking with confusion when such a plane flies over a flak vehicle with zero he rounds, only armor piercing rounds left and the crew decides not to shoot the plane.

AP given to FlaK units is only used when engaging an armoured ground target.

Yes, Shturmovik are difficult to shoot down because in RL they were difficult to shoot down

Wouldnt it be nice to have an option to shoot them with ap rounds. Would certainly help in that. I cannot see any better target for them myself and in most of the time i prefer positioning the anti air assets in the rear where there are no ground targets to be had.

I have been wondering many times in the years of playing steel panthers that it would be nice to turn on and off the ammo types in the same way as weapons.

This would give an option for players to choose the ammo type they want to use without further restricting the game in any way.


In case of shturmovik i suppose the armor value is the game represantative to that, not the inability of the flak units to use armor piercing rounds against them.

The scenario i mentioned above does not make any sense to me.

Shooting at planes with AP ammo is practically useless because the chance of a direct hit is near zero. Direct hits are only possible with machine-guns because of their high rate of fire.

Guns are stationary and much easier to aim at than aircraft. What is m10 3in?

Oh, but how was it possible? Did the sniper hit a super weak spot, such as the visor?
