great mod and all but i was a bit disappointed that the soviets use german flak 18 guns and not their KS-12 guns on this one map i played (forgot the name) for the sake of historical accuracy use this gun it was widely used and was used as the main gun for the T-34/85. more pics here http://www.thetankmaster.com/english/afv/85mm52k_01.asp 52k_01.jpg

Not a very good idea to put this baby in as replacement for the AA the ruskies have at the moment, reason being that you need very mobile and relatively rapid fire guns to stand a chance at hitting planes in FH. and not a rather powerfull but too slow german88 type weapon.

he didn't say he wanted them to replace the bofors, they would be like the german flak18 but for the russian. But the Bofors are almost historically accurate, as the 37mm M1939 soviet AA gun is almost identical to the bofors.

m1939_DFST9208203.jpgI don't exacly know what the differences between a Bofors and this are, but if they are so similar the devs could change the bofors name (for the russians) to make sound like "37mm M1939" or sumthing like that.

My mistake, i thought he ment the german flak38, wich looks like the bofor. Im not sure about how much it will do as AA tho, if the rate of fire is somewhat like the 88. Its very hard to hit a plane with that.

The KS-18 would be good, the Germans could use them (8.5cm Flak M39(r)). Here's a more detailed pic of a 37mm M1939, also used by the Germans as the 3.7cm Flak M39a(r): attachment.php?attachmentid=24465&stc=1

Yes i think it should replace the bofors.... but that appears to be a dual 37mm gun here's a single barreled one which they used: 37mm61K_01.jpg
