Anti-aircraft guns were originally intended to physically shoot down the slow-flying aeroplanes and airships of the First World War, but as the 1930s progressed so aeroplanes became faster and faster. As that happened, so the job of the anti-aircraft gunner became much more challenging; leading a fast-moving aerial target so as to score a hit was increasingly difficult. So the tactics changed and the technology improved. At sea, the anti-aircraft gun once again served to keep attackers’ speeds high, forcing them to make split-second decisions and increasing the chance of a missed bomb or torpedo.

An excellent reference book

This little book provided some valuable details about the problems of actually producing anti-aircraft artillery. In the article on the Oerlikon gun, it is related how the original design contained something close to 300 parts, required a large number of machining operations, and cost quite a lot of treasure. The gun was redesigned by production-oriented engineers who greatly reduced the parts count and number of machine operations, cutting the production cost by close to 80%. Perfection is indeed the enemy of the good!
