I can't really say if you can destroy a ship"s aa without sinking it, because I've never tryed it. I don't really see why a person would want to take out the aa and not the ship as well.

I have a campaign where I started with the F2 and now I'm in a F4. I've strafed trains and convoys. It takes practice but I find it very fun and rewarding. You'll get a feel for things over time like when to pull up. Try to set up your gun runs so that you will inflict the most damage to as many targets you can in a single pass. Trust me I'm been a lawn-dart lots of times but once us get a feel for mudmoving missions they can be lots of fun.

Good Luck and have Fun.

On most new ships (Kirov, Niobe, Type 7) you can destroy individual flak guns, but it takes a lot of bang to do so. A direct hit from a bomb or rocket is usually required, cannons don't work.

Alternatively, destroying parts of the superstructure will eliminate all AA guns attached to that piece of structure. Ie, if you destroy the Marats main mast, the guns on the mast are destroyed.

But the firepower required to kill even a modest number of guns is so great that you would be better off hitting the hull and sinking the ship instead.

THX for tip for the ship guns... As far as strafing ground targets are concerned, I will do it with much much pleasure even with 2x7,62mm http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif , but when AA is around I don't wanna be there with Friedrich http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
