Merge SPAAG into Self-propelled anti-aircraft[edit]

I propose merging that article into this one. There is considerable overlap, including self-propelled gun–missile systems. Keep in mind that the main article is still Anti-aircraft warfare, and this one just covers more specific information about vehicle-based systems. Michael Z. 2005-12-21 21:13 Z

I agree. Bukvoed 21:06, 9 February 2006 (UTC)


roland[edit]

include Roland (air defence) here?

I disagree, Roland is an independent AA system and deserves its own article, this one is about the type. MoRsE 09:54, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:PZA Loara.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:PZA Loara.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 00:22, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

50 mm machine guns?[edit]

The article currently says "The turrets sported 4 parallel-mount 50 mm machine guns" but I think someone has mistaken .50 caliber (ie. ½ inch or 12,7 mmm) as standing for mm and not .5 inch. 50 mm would be a cannon caliber.--Sus scrofa (talk) 18:40, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

it does sound like a mangled description of the M45 Quadmount. Some of the phrasing of the article is a bit clumsy, and the lack of references unfortunate. GraemeLeggett (talk) 18:57, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
