Why AA are so weak ? They need to be buff a bit (even it's totally unnecessary) !

What 7.7 mm/80 type92 have in commun with 76 mm 34k ?

Spoiler

 

0 average damage per second

 

 

Yes, it's a tier 1 AA, but i did not know AA could be so weak ! So because it's so low, can it be buff a little ? é.è

 

Also, what is that thing Oleg have and no Bogatyr ? (Green arrow lead the way)

Yupp, just like he said... :cap_cool:

 

BTW, torpedo nets are purely decorations in this game. They have no effect whatsoever. Even in real life they only could be used, if the ship was stationary and even then they were never very effective in catching anything except perhaps some drifting seaweed. This is why they were later removed from all ships. :Smile_smile:

Some of the lower tier BBs have the torp net too.

 

Prince Albert or whatever you can it, the T3 German BB clearly shows hers off.

I think the Hermelin has dual-purpose main battery. Or maybe it had, I don't know. I just remember I laughed when it had better AA rating than most German cruisers up till mid-tier.

1) they have zero AA, because thy cannot meet CV

 

Disagree, some T3 ship can meet CV and have none AA...

By 0, i mean the AA turn to be simply a decorative element (I don't said all element should have purpose aka wanawhoknow what was the net thx for that) and poor sailor who will never be able to kill a simple seagle, it's sad. =o

 

It's kinda like maxim machine gun on Derzki are much better than the DShK on Orlan, probably it's for an obscur balance reason, but i don't know.

Here is an idea!

 

Replace them with fishing nets! Then your Battleship could catch some fresh fish on its way to the warzone!

Oh yeah @konean, that is true. There could be an air threat with a suitably arranged fail division and a tier 3 game... :etc_red_button::cap_rambo:

 

Hmmm, wouldn't it theoretically be possible to end up in tier 4 game as well then... Tier 1&2 division... :cap_hmm:

Enemy planes spotted! Quickly! Man both the 7.7s! :cap_rambo:

 

I reccoment we give the Novik the Defensive AA consumable. By default the crew should man only one of the Maxims, when Defensive AA is activated they man both.

As tier 3 can meet 1 above and 1 below. CV's start at tier 4 a tier 3 Cruiser can happily meet a CV without any fail divisions!

That is indeed true @Loonsbro BUT we are talking about the chances of a tier 1 meeting any planes.:fish_cute_2:

 

What I always found funny is that pretty much ALL tier 3 DD's have mightily better AA that Fujin, Kamikaze or Shinonome at tiers 5 and 6. The only remarkable weakness of those ships. Hehehe!:Smile_amazed:

Heh yeah, once ended up in a tier 4 game with a Mikasa.... What is even more amazing is that I even managed to get 40k+ damage and 1 kill before my inevitable demise. :cap_wander_2:

Torpedo nets were somewhat useful on WWII, according to wikipedia:

 

"Torpedo nets were revived in the Second World War. In January 1940 the UK Admiralty had the ocean liner Arandora Star fitted out with steel booms at Avonmouth and then ordered her to Portsmouth where she spent three months testing nets of various mesh sizes in the English Channel. The net successfully caught all the torpedoes fired at them and reduced the ship's speed by only 1 knot (1.9 km/h), but in March 1940 the nets were removed. In July the unprotected Arandora Star was sunk by a torpedo, killing 805 people.

Booms and nets were fitted to a few ships in August 1941, and by the end of the Second World War they had been fitted to 700 ships. The nets did not protect the whole of a ship, but protected from 60 to 75 percent of each side. 21 ships so equipped were subject to torpedo attacks while the nets were deployed. 15 ships survived as the nets succeeded in protecting them. The other six were sunk because a torpedo either penetrated a net or hit an unprotected part of a ship."
