    They're for shooting at soft targets, such as trucks, cars, infantry, etc.

    One of their purposes IRL was also to force AAA gunners to stop shooting and to duck behind cover or at least to disturb their aiming during an attack (on a ship for example).

    Yeah, they are for me to shoot things after I miss with the bombs.


    Has anyone got an air kill with the front guns? Maybe an I153 will fly around in front of me one day.

    I think UK dedicated has a scenario with Ju87s vs P11c's, I think I once managed to shoot something down, but usually it's easier to try and drop a bomb on the enemy or ram them
