Is there someone knowing average numbers of required shells for one kill?
(possibly differentiated between MT and VT fuzed shells)

13) Proximity fuses and gun laying radar were used against the V1s with ever increasing success.
14) In their first week, 17% of all flying bombs that entered the coastal “gun belt” were destroyed by anti-aircraft guns. This increased to 60 percent by 23 August and 74 percent in the last week of august, when on one day 82 percent of all incoming V1s were shot down. The rate improved from one V-1 destroyed for every 2,500 shells fired, to one for every 100.
