Anti-Aircraft Artillery

While maintaining specificities, naval guns have been standardized and simplified in the game.   In effect, individual armament of ships namely incorporated in the game might differ somewhat from their actual equipment.   Hopefully, the purists will forgive...   The various AA guns below fall into the following categories :

Heavy machine guns

.50 cal

These WWII vintage US weapons might (rightfully) be considered as obsolete bu are retained :
to balance the 14.5mm Soviet ZPU-2 or ZPU-4 machine guns
to offer the gamer a variety of threats levels and of damages to be sustained
Autocannons Light

20-30 mm

Again some WWII vintage equipment were chosen
because the ubiquitous Oerlikon gun, whichever its iteration, cannot be dismissed
because the firepower of some ancient 20mm quads could be "fun" to face in the game
Autocannons Medium

40-57 mm

Once again some WWII vintage equipment
the 40mm Bofors is still soldiering on today (2012) so its presence is natural
the Soviet 45mm Bofors equivalent wasn't produced in large numbers, so is some sort of a cheat here
the 57mm AA caliber was used on both Soviet and Western ships
Autocannons Heavy

76 mm

This category might end up being merged with the dual purpose deck guns
Dual purpose deck guns

100-127 mm

While a variety of guns is present in the game, some level of standardization has been implemented. So the various target (or support) ships in the game might not be precisely be associated with the weapon they were actually carrying.  As mentioned, it s hoped purists will forgive...   Examples:

120mm Mod50

The Swedish Oland and Uppland destroyers were equipped with a 1942 model rather than the later 1950 variant used on the Halland class destroyers

127mm 5"/38

Some US destroyers were equipped with the single barrel 5"/54 gun rather than the 5"/38 and the French actually had a 127mm (twin) gun of their own.  The same performances will apply to all, including the 5"/25 gun used on some ships and older WWII era US submarines
