It was proposed to have a mix of both , that would be the ideal way to go IMO .

Gunshield did save my Gunner yesterday from a EA and I managed to take one DD with me before another DD and one of his HE round killed my gunner.

Some like them other do not , so a spawn mix between both would be the best option.

Harder to see, but you live a lot longer.  Good trade IMO.

Eh, not really. The only thing it protects you from is machine gun fire. They get a hit on the shield with an AP round and you're dead, they used to need a direct hit to kill the 88's gunner. The spall shreds you.  Plus, you're easier to spot at range with that giant square shield. 

Bofors, it's worse. You can't shoot at planes coming from the right to the left because the shield blocks your view, and again, it only protects you vs tier0 planes. Cannons and 50 cal go right thru it and it doesn't seem to protect at all from bombs. 

Pretty useless in my experience, and with the bofors, it makes the weapon perform worse.

See above. And this is from one of the best gunners in the game.

I pretty much predicted this, of COURSE the spall makes it easier for tanks to kill crews and expressed my satisfaction at the silly people that wanted them.

 

I would go T0 88 no shield, something like whatever tier  is 1943 for Flak36 with gunshield and the better ammo.
