Help with Anti Aircraft

Recommended Posts

I can't post in the Kursk Forum( I don't know why), so I do it here. Hope this is not a problem.

I just bought Tow 2 Kursk a week ago and started playing the first german mission, the Kerkasskoe one. I can't seem to finish it. I tried countless times.......

One of the biggest problems I have are the enemy aircraft and they hit hard, they kill my artillery and sometimes the tanks. Hiding in the forrest doesn't help.

So I bought 2 37mm sdkfz AA vehicles, put Soldiers with gunnery >70 in there. But yeah they really don't help. I tried more then 30 times. They did not shoot 1!! plane. And they get targeted first and die fast.....this is really frustrating.

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. It seems impossible to counter the planes. I could try 4 AA vehicles, but....

How do you fight enemy aircraft? Any tipps?

Also, the 37mm is not the best AA gun in the game (too low a rate of fire for my taste). I would prefer the 20mm on quadruple mount. A captured DShk on tripod would serve the purpose very well, if you've one available. You can also use the SdKfz-222 for anti-aircraft defence, but again, with a single 20mm tube, it is not the most effective unit. It has the advantage that it can be used in a multi purpose role, though.

Try to have your anti-aircraft assets hidden behind building rather than under trees. Trees hamper their vision, and provide no cover, only concealment, while a building provide both cover and concealment, while allowing your units to have a good sector of fire behind the building (a nasty surprise for enemy aircraft)

in my experience, regular AA in ToW series are quite ineffective unless you change their level to veteran. You may turn them also toward the direction of the threat because their spotting ability is very reduced on their back.

Hi Anon052

Try this:

Give our AA the best Gunner. Gunner 70-80 is perfect! Two AA Guns are enough.

Tanks attack aircrafts too!

Place our tanks at top of the big hill. Dont drive to trenches or village.

Let only infantry attack trenches and the village and no enemy aircraft will attack U!
