Recall in TOAW III, AAA weapons in non-AAA ground units were broken. Only dedicated AAA units had an AAA effect. That was apparently fixed in the last TOAW III patch.
I suspect that issue may now be carried over to TOAW IV.
It is normally hard to tell what effect ground AAA has when there are aircraft on both sides. But in Overlord 1944 in TOAW IV, only the Allied side has aircraft, so any air losses would be from AAA. Only a couple of pure AAA units on the German side.
Results so far with PO as Allies, Air Staff Assistant ON: Turn 1= no Allied air loses; most ground attacks supported by 2-3 air groups.
Turn 2= PO made ground attacks and I supported with 3x3 air groups, approx 100 aircraft each. The only air losses were to Korps 88mm AAA battalion = 1 B-17, 2 P-38, and 1 P-47.
I advanced the AAA lethality to 400% in this example.
Recall the Allies lost, as a conservative estimate, 400 ground support aircraft the first 30 days.
Larry, our resident Air Staff officer, can you help us out here?
