This might seem odd and I'm not trying to troll, but has anyone noticed the AA rating on Hashidate (T1), well it's 16 her DP guns fire out to 5km, her 25mm guns fire out to 3km, if that is not enough her 120mm DP guns fire at 11rds per minute (T10 IJN DD only 8.6 rds per minute).

So not only is she the beast of all AA teir4 and below but she can also kill off IJN DD's.

Funny that a ship with that much AA defence never see a plane.

Okay wished it had the DP consumable then.

 

Pretty sure the DP has to be dual barrel or greater and at least 2 of them to get the consumable (along with being a cruiser)

Just with all the complaining about lack of low tier AA I thought I would have a look at what was around, turns out the 2 T1 are some of the best

You're gonna give me a bald spot from scratching my head wondering how that is so :amazed:

Could explain the number of fail divisions recently :hiding:

(then again they could just be fail)

 

If used right they could well be very handy.

only ship you would try to stop being a DD near friendly CV

Pretty sure both the Yuubari and maybe the Iwaki A. are both far better in regards to how much AA they have, and aren't a liability when brought into a tier 4 game either.

i think later when they have tournament , they will use a point system , and if tier1 have a AA sustem they will be useful

Both these ships are not free available to the general public, which is what I was looking at when going through the tech tree.

There will not be a CV in the match if there isn't anyone equipped with a hull with some AA.

Unfortunately since the Iwaki was a reward for alpha testers and the Yubari was a pre order ship, they aren't so prevalent in game with all the new players, Mind you the Yubari is a decent AA ship as you said, though its lacking in firepower and torpedo arc
