        Yeah it is pretty muddier - even muddier than I first thought when I
started going through the rules looking at it last night. Going by our standard
'take the interpretation which makes something ok rather than a:cheesy or b:
useless' the people I usually play with decided to treat it as an AT flak shot.
Ok its better against non flyers than most flak units
, but except against THawks even
2FP worth of flak will get you better returns than 1AT shot - much better if
youre lucky enough to be shooting at 4+ or 3+ targets.......
