* Every faction in ''CompanyOfHeroes'' gets access to some form of anti-aircraft weaponry, but since the only aircraft in the game are in the form of doctrine-specific {{Support Power}}s they're employed more for their ability to [[MoreDakka shred infantry and light vehicles]].

** As it includes the original ''Macross'', ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' also has the Defender, plus a few other additions put on the various ships' hulls. This makes quite painful how the ships of the third series are PointDefenseless in spite of fighting an enemy that relies ''exclusively'' on massed fighter attacks.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': The Dragon Rend shout is probably the most evident example, being specifically designed to force dragons to land. However, other Shouts such as Storm Call and Marked for Death are also pretty effective against flying dragons as well: Storm Call will indiscriminately target any non-player entity within a given area, while Marked for Death will severely weaken the armour of anything it hits. Lightning-based Destruction spells are also good for the task too, due to the fact that they are insta-hit.

** That said, during the UsefulNotes/SecondWorldWar, AA guns of all types were successfully repurposed as ground weapons. In the case of larger, heavy anti-aircraft guns, it was found that their high muzzle velocity and heavy shell weights allowed them to punch through armour that earlier, specially-designed anti-tank guns (which were easier to handle but less powerful) could not penetrate. The German 88mm gun is the most famous example of this, in large part because its mountings actually made it a lot easier to use in this capacity. Similarly, light anti-aircraft autocannons also proved to be particularly effective against a wide range of ground targets. Their high muzzle velocities, rapid rates of fire, and ability to fire a variety of different projectiles made them effective against a wide range of ground targets.

* While many battleships built during and in the decade or two after ww1 typically had limited ability to defend against air attacks, some ww2 battleships ''brimmed'' with anti-air firepower. Examples include the United States' ''North Carolina, South Dakota'' and ''Iowa-class'' battleships. During one battle, an Admiral on an adjacent ship queried ''USS North Carolina'' asking if she was on fire because of the sheer volume of muzzle flashes from MoreDakka the ship's AA guns were throwing up.

In adition to them, the Japanese designed [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Shiki_%28anti-aircraft_shell%29 special AA ammo]] for the main guns of their battleships, that however were considered by US pilots as little more than pyrotechnic shows.
