Could this work against aircrafts?

i dont know if US Army has these type of mags but weve these in turkey for hk33,g3 and mpts and theyve 2 lines on them to help shooting aircrafts, one of them for helicopters and other for planes. You hold the gun sideways and align the proper line with the tip of the aircraft and volley fire as a platoon,would this tactic work against modern aircraft?

      what
      how the frick is this useful
      not only the aircraft in question would have to be at very specific distance travelling at very specific speed you probably don't even know the distance and speed
      it's literally just for morale or something

        Technically speaking, a lot of air defence fire is more aimed at making the pilot miss than it is to shoot the attacking aircraft down, especially when you don't have dedicated AD assets. A bunch of dudes or vics sending up tracers might make an aircraft doing a strafing run flinch and miss, even if it isn't shot down.

        But otherwise, yeah, conscripts firing 5.56 at a helo is like trying to put out a house fire by spitting at it very hard.

        It's a guess. It's a better guess than what the conscript would have made otherwise.

      this seems moronic

      This seems like one of the more idiotic things to actually be manufactured. How far away is the plane? What is the angle of attack? At what angle is it flying?
      If you want to waste ammo by shooting at an aircraft, you shoot a full auto string of bullets in front of it for it to fly through. You'll miss but that line on the magazine isn't going to help you.

        That doesn't mean what you think it means.

          Hey, maybe a plane doing a cobra has better protection against boolets because the grunts will be impressed

          I think anon meant the approach of the aircraft and not the flight principle

    It was always a desperation tactic, even back during WWII planes were flying too fast or too high to be reliably hit by people on the ground. Modern planes are faster and better protected.
    This is one of those things where the chance of it being useful is 0.1% but it doesn't cost anything extra to have that line in the mold so why not?

      Yeah
      >better protected
      Bro you sneeze near a modern jet aircraft and its spending days in the hangar, jet aircraft are far more fragile than a prop.

        Then why did the reaper drone get destroyed when the russian jet collided with it? Why was the f-15 able to fly and land with one wing? Why was the A-10 able to take direct hits from missiles and AAA and return to base?

        Check, and incidentally, mate.

          >collided
          The Russians pissed fuel on it until it died and hit it with turbulence from close passes, they didn't actually ram it like WW2 grorious nippon
          >F-15 with one wing
          The F-15 is the best plane ever made and is immune to all damage, emotional or physical
          >A-10
          because it's a flying titanium bathtub wrapped around a gun, not a real airplane

    Gimmick to get you to choose their mags over others. The range obviously would vary and so would the angle you'd need to use. Fire and adjust would be better to use, tracers would obviously help.

    Seems possibly helpful for small UAVs/ quadcopters flying low
    Though drone guns and that new US Army smart scope are supposed to address that

    Unguided AAA really sucks even in dedicated systems. It does work in mass and drone units do complain of friendly and enemy units shooting down their stuff.

    Well Turks were the first in history to shoot down a plane with a rifle during the Italo-Turkish War. Though that was when planes were still new, badly protected and slow as shit plus flew low enough that a good enough marksman could reliably hit them. So, y'know, a strategy only a 100 or so years out of date.
