Outfamed by the famous Flak 88mm, the AA 90mm was definitely the more powerful, and served as both a anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapon. Relatively expensive, it was hard to deploy these in great numbers, but still served very handy singly.

HistoryEdit

The Cannone da 90/53 was designed by Ansaldo, the first examples being produced in 1939. The original plan was for the gun to be manufactured in three variants:

  • The modello 41P was for static emplacement; 1087 were ordered
  • The modello 41C was to be towed; 660 were ordered
  • 57 were ordered to be mounted on heavy trucks designated autocannoni da 90/53

However Italian industry was not up to producing these quantities and by the end of production in July 1943 only 539 guns had been delivered, including 48 converted for use on the Semovente 90/53 heavy tank destroyer.

After Italy surrendered, guns captured by Germany forces were designated 9-cm Flak 41(i) or 9-cm Flak 309/1(i). Some of these guns were used for the air defence of Germany while others were kept in Italy.

Tips and TacticsEdit

  • Use these to help defend against other nations more powerful tanks.
  • As with most units in Ruse, it is advised to combine these with other units such as the Carro M15 for best chance for success.

TriviaEdit

  • The AA 90mm has almost exactly the same design in the game as the Flak 88mm. The differences were few, but the larger calibre, more sophisticated aiming devices, and higher muzzle velocity of the Italian 90mm made this weapon deadlier than its German counterpart.
