Does AAA fire impact bombing accuracy as planes have to conduct evasive maneuvres or just make their path less obvious?

A British study during WWII determined that AAA gun was the greatest problem during low bombing runs - even when they were attacking a relatively easy target. In one case when a 500 yd viaduct was repeatedly bombed by Typhoons, only 1 in 82 bombs hit the target. Pilots were interviewed and it was found that even though the target would have been easy to hit, if they were to fly straight, as they would have if they weren't shot at, straight flying would have made their path too obvious for AAA gunners. All the maneuvring resulted in such poor results.

Another point re WWII-level accuracy, in one operation they fired around 500,000 shells and only managed to kill 60 enemy soldiers. It was estimated, though, that killing 5% of enemy troops halves their combat effectiveness, and 10% renders the enemy unit almost useless.

That is very interesting, but I believe this is not simulated in CMO.

However, AAA accuracy definitely affects the number of bombs that arrive on target.

You should look at the “Ignore plotted course when attacking” setting in the “Doctrines” page - that might be the closest C:MANO comes.
