I recall quite a few patches ago when Pensacola got an AA mounted added to her #2 and #4 turret. Just by looking at the WoWS icon of Indianapolis in the shop indicates maybe (?) shes getting her historic AA gun on her #1 turret?

Imagine manning the gun and then the #2 turret fires...

Torpedoes don't have any friends. So they will kill everything in their path. To prevent team kills we should all watch out where we fire those fishes. That means each and everyone of us, DDs of the second line!

No my name does NOT refer to those things from Odysseus! They refer to those loud things attached to a fire truck. Not to beautiful girls singing on the Ocean.

I hardly doubt turret mounted AA guns were manned during ship to ship combat.

Yes, the AA mounts on the main turrets were not manned during ship combat however sometimes the main batteries were fired for emergency AA defense which would have been more than a bad day for the AA gun crews.
