Ive just noticed on my Mahan that the mains guns are also the AA guns? Hows does that work? Do they fire at planes if im firing at ships or do i have to stop firing at ships for them to fire at planes?

No need. It will fire at bot at the same time if needed, the aa system is automatic however

So they dont actually point at the planes then? I just continue firing at ships and they fire at planes at the same time.

No they dont. AA has 2 aspects: Flak bursts and continuous damage.

First one are the black clouds you can see, and they deal a lot of damage if the planes fly into them.

Second one gets applied in a certain interval to one plane.

Yes, that's correct.

Only mid and small caliber actually "follow" planes, at least you can notice them rotating when they have something to pew pew at. And secondaries visually track ships they are firing at.

 

One thing that follows, when playing as DD with DP guns you might want to disable AA with "P" key, otherwise whenever planes wander within their range and they start firing, you will get automatically spotted.
