USN DDs....?

 

Anti-air and DD is contradictory to each other.

 

If you want a effective AA ship, you need it to be big enough to hold a lot of AA guns (For example, the Atlanta)

If you put too much AA on a DD, it makes the DD gigantic and slows it down. It probably will lack any anti-ship capabilities as well (As it had already been filled with AA).

It has been discussed before, in various circles. Japan has enough lines to fill two tech trees of each ship class in the game. Same goes for America, and Great Britain.

 

If anything, Great Britain has the ability to fill 3 destroyer lines (if I'm not mistaken). You'll just need to see.

 

About Regia Marina and Marine Nationale...mostly paper ships as far as we can tell.

 

Also, a sort-of anti-air destroyer exists in game. She's called the Yuubari.

- In the game, the destroyer USS capable anti-air very well, I think you mean more to escort ships?

Menu controlled AA 10mm guns. Just like a Russia gunboat with good gun ans only one salvo of torps

 

10mm guns may be a bit too small mate, even the M2 Browning heavy machine guns mounted as early AA are 12.7mm...

 

But on serious note, AA ships are basically Cruisers or USN destroyers with the Defensive AA fire ability, and even then aircraft are only really a big hazard against slow BB's, other CV's and stock cruisers.

Sure you don't mean the 10cm guns, like on the Akizuki? Those are more understandable.

Personally I think it'd be interesting if we could have manually controlled AA/Secondary batteries, though that would require extensive reworking of certain mechanics (Such as aircraft being identified as squads with numbers rather than individual aircraft).

Suggest you look at the Udaloi, Tier 9 Russian DD.

 

With the hull an gun upgrade she has 137 dps ranging from 4.3 to 7.2 km.

 

7 x 2 25 mm with 65 dps at 4.3

2 x 4 37 mm with 48 dps at 4.6

3 x 2 130 mm with 24 dps at 7.2 km

 

Of course this is with captain skill and the right modules.

 

Planes at Tier 9 have about 1800 to 1900 hit points. So you can roughly shoot one plane every 13 to 14 seconds, if you focus fire more.
