|— In-game description|
The 12.7mm Anti Infantry Flak Gun (Short: EMG, Flak Gun) is a mannable defense built at the Construction Yard. It uses 12.7mm magazines. It is a Emplacement and thus can be lifted onto a Flatbed Truck. It can be placed on the ground or on a Trench Emplacement.
The Anti Infantry Flak Gun Emplacement is produced on the Construction Yard like all other Shippables. When produced, it must be 'packaged' (press 'package' button in its inventory) before it can be picked up by a Stationary Crane / Mobile Auto-Crane and loaded onto a Flatbed. To place the gun, it has to be unloaded using a crane and then unpackaged by pressing
E on it.
The structure does not have any AI, a soldier needs to man it to fire it.
The gun is similar to the Field Machine Gun. Its high rate of fire makes it kill infantry very quickly.
The gun has a single inventory slot, into which you load the ammunition.
Similar to the 68mm Anti-Tank Cannon, the stats are boosted when placed in the Trench Emplacement. There is a specific centre spot on which the emplacement can be placed using a crane. Destroying the trench destroys the gun as well.
The shield protects well from small arms incoming fire but the gunner is susceptible to sniper rifle fire and gas.
It is invisible at night, just like infantry. It can also be hidden by being placed inside large bushes, but is revealed to people within 10m. Only its firing effects (smoke and flashes from the barrel) will betray its presence. This only works if it's not packaged.
