Are there any tips and tricks for using the flack guns? I have a hard time hitting anything in the training mission.

just in case u dont know this, u can let your crew man them, and they never miss!!

Thanks. I tried this and one plane was shot down. I see lots of planes flying around, but after the first one nothing seems to happen even when I press the fire at will button over and over.

The flak artillery is so far an exercise in frustration.

You have to target them by looking through the binoculars and then pressing space bar. Other times in the real game you have to give the weapons officer the order to fire at will and then they will fire. But in practice its different.

I was going through the config files, changing all the contactpos=100 to 50, (yes, I'm a simmer for my sins) when I came across the flak gun script. It had a miss angle of 5 degrees, so I upped it to 10 degrees. However I've not had a chance to test it as I have yet to see an aeroplane after 4 patrols!

Trust me, go to the right places and you'll get all the aircraft you could want, and then some.
