I don't play CV, I still have Clear Sky, that is because of NC. I love NC :D

My build: BFT+AFT+MAA, Fighter, AA-Range-Upgrade. Occasionally use AA flags if I am in a div with a CV player. AA bubble extended to 7.2 km. There were even incidents like enemy strike package are on me, friendly CV strafe, but NC gets all the plane kills.

 

CVs, PLS.

 

What surprising is, I met CVs who get obsessed to drop on NC and they empty their almost entire reserve on me. Idk why.

amagi and NC's aa rating is almost similar but somehow aa amagi struggles with ryujo planes while NC just simply becomes bermuda triangle

 

You shouldn't take AA rating into measurement because most of the time they're misleading, look at the stats of individual AA guns instead.

If you compare Amagi & NC top hull AA stats:

 

Amagi:

25 mm/60 Type96 Twin mod. 1 - 120 DPS@3.1km
25 mm/60 Type96 Triple mod. 1 - 73 DPS@3.1km
25 mm/60 Type96 mod. 1 - 32 DPS@3.1km
127 mm/40 Type89 A1 - 80 DPS@5km

 

NorCal

40 mm Bofors Mk2 - 238 DPS@3.5km
20 mm Oerlikon Mk4 - 158 DPS@2km
127 mm/38 Mk32 - 151 DPS@5km

 

Notice the bolded part? That's why even RJ planes can drop on Amagi without significant plane loss.

Because its AA only starting to hurt at 3.1km compared to 3.5 - 5km that the NC has.

The longer planes linger in the AA bubble = more AA damage receive = more planes died before they can drop effectively.

 

And that's before taking account of AA upgrades.

Do you really hate CVs? Put a captain with BFT/AFT/MAA on the NC with AA range upgrade and watch the salt rain (literally)

The whole CV mechanics are totally broken atm.

 

There is literally no reason why most people should or want to play CV's.

 

WG has been powercreeping up AA to the point now where everyone is an anti air cruiser!

Yet, there are tons of CV players who are destroying server everyday, we have some of them here too.

Most tier 9 and 10 captains don't run AA spec so it ain't really a finger.

If my North Carolina with BFT+MAA and +20% range module can shoot down 8 Taiho torpedo bombers whilst  maneuvering, so should the Iowa and Montana, oh, don't forget to throw in the flag as well. MAA on tier 8-10 US battleships shits on planes, just like the Gneisnau

For Iowa and montana you will have one more AA upgrade slot :trollface: +25% to AA DPs. (although you cannot take that for practical reasons)

Wait until the CV rework come out early-mid 2017, I will gladly slap that module on when that time comes :trollface:

German high tier AA is almost as good as USN AA, since AA is the USN flavor, I think USN AA needs a buff :hiding:

 

buff USN AA start from erie  to 15 km, that will make USN King of AA :trollface:
