Is there something wrong with the Boise AA 127mm/25 Mk27 AA range?

 

I put a 0 point captain in the ship as a control, here is the result:

Yep a stock 5km using AA mod 2.

 

Okay so now a full spec AA captain from my Atlanta with AA mod 2:

Only a 1km buff?

 

Am I missing something here, surely the range should go out to 7.2km?

Those are not the same guns. Boise use 127mm/25 Mk27, same as Indy or Pepsi or NO. Atlanta have 127mm/38 Mk32.

The numbers shown seem legit to me: AFT gives a 20% extended range to the AA, which means 1km extra for the 5km base.

 

Salute.

 

P.S.: Well, fumtu partially answered before me. It seems that you're used to Atlanta's AA, whose guns are different and have a 6km range (so 7.2km with AFT).

All 5"/25 cal is shorter range than 5"/38 cal... Longer barrel longer range.

Weapon type dose not mean any thing for WG, just look at the German ships they all use the same AA and secondaries and they differ ALOT

Well it is true that WG balance those guns the way they think is convenient but on US ships, 127mm/38 Mk21 (Mahan, Farragut,  B hull Nicholas), Mk24 (Enterprise), Mk29 (Helena and Dallas), Mk30 (Fletcher, Benson, Sims), Mk32 (Cleveland, Baltimore, Buffalo, DM, Lexington, Essex and all T8-T9 US BB) & Mk38 (Gearing) all have 5km base range, 127mm/25 Mk19 (Pepsi, Indy, NO, Colorado, Arizona, NM, Ranger), Mk24 (A hull Independence) & Mk27 (Boise) all have 4.2km base range. Only exception were Montana and Midway which have 127mm/54 Mk41 which has 5.2km base range.
