Guns Comparative

A variet of guns and associated ammunitions are referred to in AAC and the need to identify them all separately, each with its own string of data, is questionable.   Here is a global comparison between all these guns with the aim to simplify AAC entries with only a few guns standing for others in the following categories :

MGL Machine guns - light .30 cal

to only mention one

MGM Machine guns - medium .50 cal

a standard by itself

MGH Machine guns - heavy .52 cal

a variant of the above, with more explosive content; in fact an ultra light autocannon

AKL Autocannons - light 20mm - 27mm

anti-aircraft  &  aircraft guns

AKM Autocannons - medium 30mm - 45mm

anti-aircraft  &  aircraft guns

AKH Autocannons - heavy 50mm - 60mm

anti-aircraft  &  aircraft guns

FLK Heavy cannons - - 75mm - >>

anti-aircraft

Only basic guns are mentioned below (eg: ANM2, a .50 cal aircraft gun), not gun assemblies (eg: GT4ANM2 a B52D tail gun turret containing four of these guns).

AA Artillery in Atlantic Air Combat

Muzzle speed

if used, a constant till "self-destruction" of the AA shell

Rate of fire [RoF]

basic rate mutiplied by the number of barrels of the gun when a gun is de facto a multiple barrel item

Gun range [>]

minimum and maximum horizontal and vertical ranges of the gun (the latter for AA guns only)

Shell weight

if used, will determine a certain level of kenetic damage inflicted or sustained - the heavier the shell, the more the damage

Shell WH

amount of explosive (TNT) in the shell - will be used to determine visual effects and the amount of damage inflicted or sustained
