Can you kill the ship AAA gunners with machine gun or cannon fire? Since you can kill AAA on land I can't see why you should not be able to do the same on ships...but it seems impossible from my experience...I've blasted ship AAA gunners with no effect. And even after being rocketed they just keep firing...super guys!

You can destroy light AAA guns on ships.

However, it takes a lot of hits to destroy it. A simple 20mm gun might take a few seconds of hosing down with cannon fire to destroy.

Rockets will also destroy AAA, but it must be a direct hit, and usually works only for the larger rockets. The same applies for bombs.

To try it out, take a Me-262 and target the guns on a carrier. It will take at least a dozen or so hits to kill something. When destroyed, the gun crew will vanish, and the gun will start smoking.

In all, destroying light AAA is so difficult that there isn't much point to trying. You would be better off shooting those rockets into the hull and sinking the ship.
