Yeah, I saw a blurb last night. I was wondering how it happened and now I see. If it's a robo gun, why did it need soldiers at each one? (yeah, I know, reloading, but I just don't get the advantage to robo gun here.) Sounds like it was a disaster looking for a place to happen.

I warned ya'll bout the machines, but you refused to listen. Now it's begun, and we may be too late to stop it. NO FATE! But really, four men to a gun? So it's just a really complicated cannon with an eletronic trigger and televised sight.

I'm more dumbfounded by the fact it's an anti-aircraft gun. Haven't those basically become useless for anything but anti-infantry?

It is a battery of AA guns that are linked to a central fire control system. Kinda like a battery of artillery all linked to fire on the same target but in this case you get several AA guns pouring out a very large volume of proximity fused HE-frag rounds.

The incredible rate of fire, multiplied by two guns per platform times eight guns means any intruding aircraft is gonna have trouble.

Most dont have the gunner onboard anymore because the guns track so fast teh human gunner cant keep up and gets dizzy and disoriented.

I have many times wished for a effective AA gun in BF2 for aerial and ground targets. Anyone who has played BF2 knows what kind of rapeage the Linebacker and Tungustka can wreak on infantry and light armor.
