Game Play

For a light AA gun, the 25 mm CA has a powerful high explosive charge and can bring enemy planes down very quickly, if they are within its effective range. In Battleground Europe you should deploy this gun to provide a close-in anti-air umbrella over attacking forces; try to set up in a brush line or trees behind your main advance, where your HE firepower will not only be useful against enemy aircraft, but can provide heavy fire-support for your advancing infantry. A very high muzzle velocity makes for easier deflection shooting.
