Bullsheet, Atlanta never meet Hakuryu. also a single atlanta can even get killed by Shokaku divebomber.

those pesky atlanta have super advantage of T7, it meet only T5 TB of IJN CV most of the time.

 

anyway, PICK AADF or you die!

Atlanta with DFAA may not shred T9/T10 planes, but they'd still won't survive the duration I assume.
Without DFAA or when it's in cooldown, Other usual cruisers at T10 without DFAA would be more formidable.

Atlanta AA will only "shred" up to tier 8 cv planes. Or the noobs in CV who will keep sending 1 squad and keep hovering for 5 minutes before dropping. Tier 9 and Tier 10 CVs can overwhelm Atlanta even inside DFAA. If I recall it right, they can even delete stuffs like Iowa with Manual AA if they want to, and compare that to Atlanta... its food.

A fully specced Atlanta with Defensive Fire active will output 958 dps at 7.2 km. A fully specced Des Moines with Defensive Fire active will output 2,559 dps at 7.2 km. So while Atlanta AA is very powerful at Tier 7, it is still not in the same league as a genuine high tier Cruiser.

Do IJN Fighters ever have an advantage over US fighters in dogfighting? I'm at tier 5 IJN and noticed ship AA won't completely destroy a squad but US fighters will win every time.

While you gain lot more strike power in IJN CVs, USN gain fighter strength. And in high tiers, ship AA will kill a lot more. But you will still lose most of your planes to enemy strafes.
