Bug Description

Area effect weapons like Psi wave or Sonic weapons can't damage air units. It blocks me to add sonic AA weapon to Chitzkoi.

This is working as intended and not a bug. No weapon that fires at a ground target is able to damage flying targets.

I mean when its projectile is AA=yes.

If you want a projectile affect air, then detonate it in air. See

By using ProjectileRange=0 and Ranged with a dummy SHP projectile, you can make fake areafire weapons which *can* affect air.

Either way, there is no bug here. AA=yes doesn't matter if you use AreaFire=yes.

16.71.1311, seems to works fine, but only as far as damage is concerned (and damage-based effects, like Psychedelic=yes). Ares effects (EMP, AE, etc) are still always applied to air objects, no matter what threshold is set.

Don't know if this is part of this blueprint, though, since i believe those are being applied in a different way.
