I am working on a scenario for the attack on Wake Island 1941. I am looking for the AA Factors for the Marine Defense Battalion for use against small boats during the landing and aircraft bombing.
The Marines had three 4x 3" gun AA batteries, each with a searchlight, based on Wilkes, Pearl, and Wake Islands. They could not cover the water but were good against aircraft. What AA Factor and range could they cover?
Each island also had a 2x 5" gun batteries which could cover the water but were not capable against aircraft. What would be their anti-boat AA Factors and range?
The Marines also had a 3" anti-boat gun on the beach which could engage boats but not aircraft. What would it's AA Factor and range allowed be?
The beach defense also had MG positions covering the water, usually in pairs, which would be anti-boat, but not anti-aircraft capable. What would be the Anti-Boat AA Factors and range allowed for:
