19 planes in a random battle over the holidays. I might have gotten more when I had my Cleveland but these days no sane CV captain goes near a Cleveland unless you are the last or second to last ship in a close battle. I think the CV captain didn't respect my Yorck AA capabilities as he kept sending planes to try and sink ships that were close by me or maybe me?

 

What's the highest total you can remember with any cruiser or even BB? I'm sure a Cleveland probably tops the list probably.

40 planes in the Atlanta... but that's cheating. :trollface:

 

Wouldn't be surprised if someone shot down over 100 planes with an Atlanta if it was properly spec'd for AA and opposing two CVs.

 

Yorck AA is by no means amazing, but it's certainly enough to make CVs approach with caution.

Twenty-six in my Pensacola, apparently. Followed by twenty-four in my Cleveland. Then twenty-one in my New Mexico. Then twelve in North Carolina. Yuubari and ARP Kirishima tie out at 7 each. To note, I run AA module on my NC and have Manual AA, and my Cleveland and Pensacola both run Defensive Fire. New Mexico comes as a surprise, though, I forget that game.

I would be. Don't think Atlanta can survive against such an onslaught.

 

Even 100 in a CV is pushing it <_<

You're right. It looks like the max is 85 in the NA server.

Taters going to tate. 

 

Dang, I'm #7 for Midway on most plane shot down. 

 

Weird, should be #1 for Gearing for most plane shot down but it doesn't show me. 

 

Edit: I see, minimum battles 80... My Battles: 79. Lol

 

Dios Mio.... Someone has shot down 138 planes in Des Moines.

I've had over 10 in my Akizuki, surprising little AA troll there; but the only one I ever remember is 30 with my Bogue; my first ever Clear Sky; back under the old system.

 

'Oh; but that's easy-peasy with an Air Superiority Bogue.'

 

Perhaps; but it wasn't done with an Air Superiority Bogue; I did it with a Strike Bogue; which means 30 aircraft with tail-gunners and AA alone.

48 in the atlanta, 55 in DM, 55 in the neptune and 86 in the balti, 63 in the Iowa. It goes on. Doesn't really matter any more since they changed the cvs. The 86 plane kills with the balti was vs 2 essex, but you can't even do that any more. I wish I could have seen my DM, Neptune, or Monty vs 2 CVs.

I forgot about the Atlana but I don't own it. That is an impressive total with the Gearing. I know I was suprised how many planes my Sims shoots down per battle without even focus firing at times.

All sorts of carrier matchup happened back then. One side lacking carrier, one carrier each with one side two tiers higher, one higher tier carrier versus two lower tier carriers, etc...

 

Not really possible to get much shot down anymore these days with the parity and one-per-team limit at high tier...maybe double catapult fighters (which expends only one plane) may increase the possibility of exceeding 100 a bit?

Yeah, even my 58 plane kill in gearing was on two higher tier CV's.

You mean lower? Doubt that carrier tier can go higher with your Gearing in the field...

 

But back then shot down rewards were truly horrible, that it was a real struggle grinding from the Langley up to the fully upgraded Lex on fighters alone.
