PSA Regarding AA Guns Modification 1 on DDs

I have recently noticed that since the latest AA rework some ships, notably DDs, no longer have any flak.

 

This includes ships such as Cossack, Asashio and the new steel DD Somers.

 

As a result, AA Guns Modification 1 does nothing on these ships but it can still be mounted.

 

So, PSA: check through all of your ships and remove any mounted AA Guns Modification 1 upgrades on them if they don't have flak since +2 flak clouds does nothing when the ship has a stock value of 0 flak clouds.

 

I've tried to go through every DD ingame right now and made a list of all of them that no longer have Flak (Updated: All ships from tier 5-10);

I've double checked them all ingame but please let me know if there are any ships I've missed or are wrong.

Saipan comes to mind.

Not that it makes too much of a difference considering she's a CV.

If you have it on Texas, remove it as well, as it's now useless. :etc_swear:

I'm a little :etc_swear: in this particular case. 

 

Funnily enough, the description of the mod hasn't changed at all: +2 explosions generated by Mid and Long range defenses. :cap_book:

It's any DD (or any other ship) without DP main guns or mid calibre DP secondaries. 

 

Still works nicely on the US build ones, though.

At this point AFT is only good for secondaries and gunboat DDs trying to get more main battery range. For AA it's cr@p.

 

A note on the AA Mod 1 and American DD's:

-Faragut - Useless on all hulls, raises the amount of bursts to 3.

-Mahan - Same as Farragut.

-Benson - Meh. Gives 5 bursts. C hull is just a joke now.

-Fletcher - 6 puffs at long range.

-Gearing - Meh. 5 puffs long range.

-Sims - 4 Puffs. Meh.

-Monaghan - 5 puffs. B hull is interesting as AA platform.

-Black -  Worse Fletcher.

 

My verdict don't use the mod even on DDs with DefAA.

I'm replacing it on most ships (read: all DDs; less sure what to do about the cruisers) where I had it equipped atm.

 

I wish I wish I wish that WG would tell us the ranges at which flak clouds will spawn now – the infographic from the patch notes shows that it covers part of the mid-range and all of the long-range aura, but no mention of exact values in the client :cap_viking: If anyone has any idea where to find this info, I would be very pleased to hear.

 

Ngl, I might just replace it with the aiming systems mod on every ship anyway, especially while upgrades are half price.

Flak stops spawning at 3.5km.

It's in the patchnotes. There is a "Detailed" tab you can open at the end of the AA changes.

Ahh, I see. Well spotted. I should double check ships with multiple gun options.

I've had the chance to go through every tier 5-10 BB, CV and cruiser now.

 

I've updated the list in the first post to include Saipan, New York, Texas, Omaha, Marblehead, Murmansk and Oktobraskaya Revolutsiya.

"It's an oversight from our part. Yes, we will fix it (probably the first way - to make it unavailable for certain ships), and also credit the compensation to the affected players (calculated as 1/2 of upgrade cost for each instance). That's the plan, and I hope we will make it happen until end of that week. I apologize for the inconvenience. " - SubO , reddit Q&A
