SAMs appeared in the late fifties in the form of long range/high altitude defense systems organised in fixed hardened installations either surrounding key areas (Moscow) or in defensive belt like the NATO "Nike" belt in West Germany (see also: SAM Bases).

-

However, some of these "fixed" systems had a certain level of mobility.   For instance, the British Army (not Royal Air Force) Thunderbird system was actually intended to be deployed in the field, and the same could be said for the Soviet's SA-2 Guideline or the American MIM-23 Hawk systems.  Whether these installations would be that easy to move about within a volatile battle front is matter free for everyone to ponder...

So, in effect, these defense weapons may be encountered outside these easily identifiable installations.   Whether locked within hardened installations or mobile to a certain extent, all but really mobile/short range point defense SAM (see: SPSAML) are regrouped in this chapter.

All were/are very real, with one exception : the Swiss Oerlikon RSC-50....58 or Micon never developped into an operational system and only test/trial versions were delivered to potential customers (USA, Japan, ...)   Good marketing but poor results.   For the purpose of the game however, the opportunity could not be missed to incorporate such a weapon developped by a non aligned country.   So, if in real life Finland was never authorized to field the Britsh Bloodhound system, let's imagine they did put up with the Micon...  

Finally the list below doesn't intent to be comprehensive as not all Operators of a given missile system are listed and some of those mentioned are not consistent with the AAC storyboard but are mentioned for the sake of mentioning (eg: the Bloodhound/Thunderbird export list is supposedly complete).   Historical cheats are clearly identified

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 system - historic data in black - modified data in red

Radar range

maximum horizontal and vertical ranges of the radar

Gun range

minimum and maximum horizontal and vertical ranges of the gun

Firing sequence

AA guns are firing bursts of so many seconds rounds, interrupted by the same "silent" period till ammunitions are exhausted

Ammunition clips

The notion is not applied in AAC

Ammunition total

Ammunition supplies is definite or infinite (~) - expressed in a number of clips or rounds available

Shell weight

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

Shell/Warhead

amount of explosive material exclusively - will be used to determine visual effects and the amount of damage sustained
