We know that AAA fires at any aircraft within range, friendly or not. Will AAA with firecan support fire at friendlies, or will fire only come from regular AAA in the hex?

I believe a Fire Can does not attack DRV flights because 14.43 states "It can shoot at an enemy flight", with no mention of shots at friendlys, while 14.3 specifically states that Flak Barrage does affect US or DRV flights. Plus, Fire Can only gets one shot per game turn, so you don't have to fire at the first target that flies in range.

Flak Barrage is just spraying the sky, while Fire Can is a directed shot at a specific flight.

Which checks with a Soviet IADS. Firecan ( a copy of a WW2 US radar donated via Lend-Lease) had the ability to interrogate IFF. This is a simple to simulate that capability.
