 Anti-Aircraft Artillery Ammunitions

 

With the "ligh" anti-aircraft artillery being covered above, heavy anti-aircraft artillery is a somewhat different subject.   Atlantic Air Combat is referring to several heavy AA guns, among them naval guns.   Illustrations of the related ammunition seems difficult to find, so we will work by the numbers rather than visual comparison
