Give Z52 option to change Hydro for DFAA

So I was wondering if Z 52 should be given the option to change Hydro for DFAA since I think the trade off is pretty balanced and also the fact that the game stated that she has "very powerful AA defense".

At least even Akizuki AA build can hold it's own against its respective tier carriers.

Probably not going to happen.

Players have been asking for the Akizuki - you know the ship that was historically designed and built for AA escort duty - to get DFAA, but WG just goes nope, because reasons. :Smile_facepalm:

So I doubt Z-52 will get DFAA. Maybe if enough WG devs get dev-striked by CVs in their Z-52, then they might consider... :Smile_hiding:

IJNDD really need ultra strong AA and DFAA to widen plane drop.

my shima just get wrack by tier 10 CV last match and there's no counter play at all, so unfair T_T

 

no wait.... just remove CV and all problem solve! Eureka!!

WoWs would be better place without them to break all balance!

The reasons being that she has half again as much base AA power as the Kidd, and we know how incredibly strong the Kidd is with def AA up.  It would be pretty unbalanced.

Just give Akizuki a weaker DFAA with no damage multiplier, only the panic spread. Don't forget that DFAA for US and Russian DDs were buffed recently (from x3 to x4 damage I believe) while Akizuki got nothing, so a Kidd with DFAA has more than twice the AA power Akizuki has. Currently, Akizuki's are not really a threat to me when I play CVs. They can't protect their allies, they can't even protect themselves since they are too slow and too cumbersome to dodge torpedo bombers from a determined CV player.

Anyway, my point is that if WG does not want to give Akizuki, which imo should receive DFAA for both balance and historical reasons, DFAA, then what chance would the Z-52 get have? Just because its description says it has powerful AA systems, doesn't mean it is going to get DFAA, at least not in WG's eyes.

AA data of full AA build T10 DDs (with ManAA)

Shimakaze 69.2@4.5km+99@7.2km

(suppose it has 4x DAAF 276.8@4.5km+396@7.2km)

Gearing 71@2.9km+87.5@5km+148.5@7.2km

(71@2.9km+350@5km+594@7.2km)

Z-52 118.8@5km+229.4@7.2km

(suppose it has 4x DAAF 475.2@5km+917.6@7.2km)

Khabarovsk 23.1@1.7km+108.9@5km+161.7@7.5km

Grozovoi 26.4@4.5km+135.3@5km+165@7.5km

(105.6@4.5km+541.2@5km+660@7.5km)

Yueyang 57.8@2.9km+87.5@5km+148.5@7.2km

Akizuki 97.6@4.5km+219.1@7.2km

(suppose 4x 390.4@4.5km+876.4@7.2km)

Kidd 47.5@2.9km+84.5@5km+139.9@7.2km

(47.5@2.9km+338@5km+559.6@7.2km)

Fletcher 41.2@2.9km+92.4@5km+174.9@7.2km

(41.2@2.9km+369.6@5km+699.6@7.2km)

Guess Z-52 simply has too much base DPS for the devs to consider adding a DAAF consumable
