Can we actually get a 3 inch gun ( not the 40mm befors acting as a battery) plz, i was watching the history channel and there was and interview of wake island, and (Wake, Alamo of the Pacific) and he said he manned a 3inch aa gun battery/ can we get a 3inch aa gun and a battery of the,? also did the U.S. 90mm gun see much service?
it did in Close Combat V: Invasion Normady =D
I saw that show too. It wasn't an AA gun (I don't think) but simply a coastal gun meant to destroy landing craft as they came in. I think it was more of a smaller version of FH's 5 inch gun.
im talking about the game Close Combat V ;)
:lookaround: sorry, I heard a guy saying,"Don't tell them you were manning the 3 inch gun that did so much damage during the landing. They'll kill you just for that."
3" = ~75mm
Also, AA guns were only rarely used for AA. Most (with some exceptions.. like ships) spent their life being used against ground targets, and they were pretty good at it. A 3" AA gun would likely make a great anti-landing-craft weapon. Its like a 75mm Howitzer with higher muzzle velocity. Larger AA guns fired HE with Frag sheets, which is an ideal load for anti-infantry work.
actually 3 inch = 76.2mm
