flak cannon only target fighters?

Build 10-27

Is it the intended behavior that Flak Cannons will only target fighters and nothing else? If so its not covered in the description for the part.

There's been some discussion on how targeting should work here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=11352

Yes that's the current behavior. It was changed maybe a few months ago? The description could be updated. I believe at the same time interceptors were made to prioritize bombers/fighters, perhaps some other targeting changes that don't appear to be documented in the Pedia either.
