Here's an interesting one:
In EF 1.04beta (probably all 3 games), large AA guns (75mm & larger) cannot target on-map aircraft while small AA guns (40mm & smaller) can. I tested this by playing both sides using Russian AAGs (12.7mm SPAA, 37mm, 76mm & 85mm) and all available German on-map aircraft. The small AAGs will target and damage the planes but when I try to fire with the large AAGs, I get the message "Cannot fire at this target type". However, both large and small AAGs will still target and damage off-map air strikes.
BTW, I really like this new feature of on-map aircraft, at least when it works the way it's supposed to. I think it has a lot of potential. Thanks for adding it.
This is probably intentional, the higher calibre (and lower fire rate) guns should have some difficulty shooting at a flying low aircraft, and I assume this is what the on-map planes represent.
You very well could be right, but it seems a little odd that they can fire at a dive bomber or a fighter making a strafing run (if they're off-map air strikes). But they (the large AAGs) do fire with a penalty (75% I think) against those air strikes to simulate, as you suggested, low ROF, etc. Oh well, bug or not, I thought I would mention it.
