before the patch, AA gunners on ships were snipers. now I heard they are snipers but closer than 2km? I cannot make any difference. Do You?

The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."

All I can say is that my survival rate when going up against ships has improved quite a lot.

The way it appears to me is that AAA didn`t so much aim, but filled a pocket of space with so much crap that with luck something would go down.

I have played many times since patch came out against naval AAA. All I can see is that the aAA fire into a cone , dunno exactly the area covered. But they do fill that cone with lotta lead. I will check to see some test. Probably a destroyer has a limmited number of aa guns. I will check to sink a ship with as many torpedo bombers as the number of aa guns the ship have. Then we can really talk about accuracy. 10 guns directed to the same plane means sure death for that plane , one gun only means that the plane can score a hit. Maybe someone can test this . I will do it when I'll be home.

Yes, thats what i heard, a 3 degree cone. But how is it possible for a ship that is racing in 30kmh, waves constantly spoiling the aim of the shooters, who dont have some 5000 piece ammo belts, with an aircraft that is throwing itself madly around not to get hit? it is very difficult to get a good deflection 2km away to a plane that is on a perpendicular course. Even todays computers handle with effort such calculations. Thats why ships used barrage, not firing at single targets.

and also I don`t think fighting a destroyer with 20 AA guns with 20 Planes will do. That is if you want to apply same tactics with a battleship, you would need some 50+ planes!
