This looks to be changing in 1.5 but something I wish I knew.





Ground Targets don't shoot at you.


Anti-Aircraft guns do.

Anti-Aircraft has a range of 800-1000 meters (1500 meters to be safe) depending on the map.

To be on the safe side, a distance of 1500 meters works. We can look over the pre-patch notes for 1.5 for clues as to changes.

1.5 update notes:


 New Ground Target Destruction Mechanics

We have completely reworked the ground-target destruction mechanic and the superiority-algorithm in Standard Battle mode:

All ground targets now consist of multiple parts and have been entirely retouched

Now, some of these parts of ground targets can have multiple characteristics such as armored, not armored or armed with an AA-gun. Armoured objects can only be destroyed with powerful weaponry such as large calibre cannons, bombs or rockets. Inversely, weaker weapons such as smaller-calibre MGs will only be able to destroy unarmored targets or AA-guns. Depending on how difficult they will be to destroy, different parts of ground targets will award players with more or less superiority points.


I think I seem to recall 1,500 to 1,800 meters is when the heavier flak was shooting at me. Of course I can't be too sure since I was busy at the time.


Here is some ground views on GT identifications from the 1.5 update:
