Alternate: Heavy Flakker
In-game Hotlink: Flakker
Anti Air flak cannon mounted on a lightweight truck chassis. Fragile, but makes an excellent escort unit for larger attack groups to fend of pesky enemy AirMechs. Can target and hit ground AirMechs for 35% damage. It's attacks cannot be avoided, unlike Seeker's missiles, and as such, makes the Flakker extraordinary effective against fast-moving airmechs, or against airmechs that can shoot down missiles.
Flakkers, however, are very weak, meaning only a small amount of damage is needed to kill one off. Attacking tanks may take down a significant part of your AA, while those with Seekers may still have plenty of AA to go around.
The instant damage of bullets make Flakkers a great choice at defending against bombing runs, with enough Flakkers on the field, the enemy will not be able to complete a bombing run without dying. But the weaker damage of the Bullets puts a higher strain on your army, as more are needed to make that damage output
This unit resembles Half-Track Anti Air units from the WWII era, Such as a GMC with 40mm Bofors AA Gun or for a more modern example the PG99 (CS/SA1) wheeled Anti-Aircraft Guns.
