Hello everyone 

I was wondering if the main armament for DDs could be used against planes. When i checked the modules section of the port, the main armament of my Mutsuki was labeled as the AA guns and artillery. Can someone pls explain

yes ,  it can :popcorn:and the range of the main turrets are also the maximum range of your AA-gun . Look closely , you can see the main turrets shoot the aircrafts ( maybe at 3.5 km or closer )

All multipurpose guns (Like the IJN's 120mm or the USN 5 inch guns) can fire at surface and air target at the same time for Gameplay reasons.

This is already rejected even back in Alpha.

 

You can press Ctrl+(Mouse-click) on the target you want to prioritize, however. (e.g. You would want to target a torpedo bomber squadron instead of shooting at a fighter squad)

it should work. but i still suggest to turn the AA gun auto-shot off, it may help you to hide for more time.
