Not enough to go around, and they were pretty useless in terms of actual anti air capability

small caliber AA weaponary tends to be fairly inneffective except in mass, and German AA doctrine was still rooted in the early halycon years of the war, (as well as their experience in spain) where they enjoyed almost total air-superiority. It wasn't until late in the war that German Ground troops came under concerted CAS runs from Allied/Soviet aircraft, (although it was more common in North Africa), so they never really had to time to adapt.

Unless someone can come up with a first-hand account of this though everything remains speculation

Seems I may have to have sex with darkest nation while razor sprays us with whipped cream. But thats fine.
