Looking through the DBs...it seems most large caliber 3"/75mm and up are limited to 1.5nm.

Looking here for example...http://www.navweaps.com/Weapons/WNUS_5-54_mk45.php the 5"/54 has a max range of 3.7nm at 65deg elevation.


Is there a reason we don't get the longer range...depending on the OODA loop and aircraft speeds you may not even be able to get a round off..

That's a good point. AA gun ranges should probably be extended.

For instance, in game the 5"/38 has a max AA range of 1.5 nm when in real life doctrine called for opening fire at 6+ nm (http://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USN/rep/Kamikaze/AAA-Summary-1045/index.html#III).

Thanks, we'll take a look. Is there a reason this is not in the DB thread(s)?

I think DB stuff is popping up here because a couple idiots have turned the db3000 into their own debate center to prove how ill-informed they both are. Just a guess.

Sorry..I'm an idiot..lol.

Figured it applied to both DB or maybe it was a WAD thing..


Thanks for taking a look.
