Ive just bought my duca and with a huge amount of work the ship is almost usable in battle.

It cost me $50 and i started at a 3 point captain.

I love duca she has a spot in my port with my molotov and buddy.

I just went into battle with my new skills and fought 3 ships on cap at once and killed all 3.

 

The duca is starting to shine slowly.

The upgrade options to stop the rudder or engine getting knocked out do not work in any way on the duca you must must have last stand on your skills or every hit will kill your duca.

Full AA + CE build? It's a lot different then what I would expect from the wiki, I would expect PT, AR, DE, CE + IFHE

Preventive maintenance makes them hard to knock out.

No, no you don't have too. I didn't use it when I ran the Duke with my corgi account and it worked out great, never noticed getting my rudder or engine knocked out.

We play different as every hit got my rudder even with a upgrade also they buffed it before release and its still really weak.

I cannot use my duca without the last stand skill in any form.

The wikipedia page that told me that says that it is basically a Cleveland that trades AA, armor and a 3rd of it's guns for torps and shell velocity.

I think its a waste to buff the very weak AA on Duca. I would have preferred IFHE to have less shells shattering against NC and Bismark. Working my captain for it, but it is only at 8 pts.

 

First I will get CE then IFHE. I use Last Stand just as prevention, because if I get a KO on my rudder while evading BB fire I'm as good as dead. But I don't find the rudder KO critical enough to be imperative having LS.

To answer my own question. I do find it frustrating when I have DFAA activated  and enemy torpedo bombers are able to launch a perfect spread from seemingly around 3km. Oddly though I find not using DFAA on Kaga when they decide to cross drop from a forward angle actually works better.

Has anyone noticed the Duca's AP can pen some surprising things? I've been getting Cits on angled Battleships thru the bows for some reason. (usually at 12km+ range)

Fuso has a weird spot just behind the forward 1/3 upper deck area on the broadside that will give citadels. Never noticed bow on, shells ricochet too easily for me. 

 

Just for fun I’m going to try to record some of my battles in this ship. Of course I didn’t have the archive option turned on for the three kill mission. So instead I present a real deep fest.  However if you think you are bad just watch me play. You will feel like the next Nimitz. :cap_cool:

not quite bow on, like a slight angle. From what I've seen my shells land near the further most superstructure.

Will have to try. Thanks. 

New York &  Nagato seem to be the ones I do it to the most.

This is what I am using.  I may dump BFT, just not sure what I want to use it on, maybe I'll take AR again.
