I thinking we are dancing around the same question which has to do with how the code views it.

Vettim89, you just won the all expenses paid, 6 hour trip, to byew-tee-ful downtown Tijuana, along with a two week, post-visit, course of antibiotic and antiviral drug treatments at Dr. Daksuramanagathian's I-Can-Cure-It Clinic, Mortuary, and Memorial Gardens in Redlands.

JuanG has determined that the flak rating is the number of barrels in the Num column, times the Effect of the weapon from the device definition.

I know this is boring and repetitive, but maybe, just maybe, it means something?

Thanks all, answered most of my question. Now I shall see what difference mounts vs individuals actually has. I will let you all know when i get some hard data.

In other words is a single Quad mount 3.2 times as effective as 4 single mounts vs multiple targets?

Can't be one size fits all, it depends on weapon and target.


When confronted with multiple attackers, does the code give each weapon mount a shot at each incoming aircraft

If that then there wouldn't be any saturation possible. Btw, never heard that tactic called "rollback", i always have heard and written as saturation attack.

Thinking on it, you are correct. "Rollback" actually refers to the tactic of aiming the initial attacks at the escorts so that follow on attacks have a better chance of hitting the high value target in the center of the formation
