Artillery comes in 2 forms in Il-2: ground artillery for attacking ground targets, and anti-aircraft guns of all calibers.

Ground ArtilleryEdit

Ground artillery does exactly what you think it does, it targets ground targets. This can cover anything from an infantry mortar to the 105mm howitzer to the titanic 600mm Karl Gerät mortar.

Anti-Aircraft GunsEdit

Anti-aircraft target anything that files, although they will target ground targets too. Anti-aircraft guns in Il-2 can be ground mounted, vehicle mounted, or ship mounted. Anti-aircraft guns range from the small single and quad Maxim gun mount to the Wirbelwind quad 20mm, to the Bofors 40mm, to the 5 inch/38, 105mm, and 150mm guns found on ships.
