What happens when you spec a Grozovoi with BFT, AFT, AA upgrade in 2nd slot, AA flag & Defensive AA?

Maybe it wasn't entirely a fluke.  Note this time red CV was Tier 9 Essex.

Hehe, it's always so fun to do something like that. I see you shot down 39 Enterprise planes. Just two days ago, I shot down 23 Midway planes in my Grozovoi.

I remember Grozovoi in testing with ludicrous AA power. Midways and Hakuryūs couldn't touch it.

I love my full stealth build Grozevoi. It's like a Gearing, except good.

Didn't they just buff the torpedo reload on it as well?

6.0 km detection

No.  They buffed the concealment.

It takes an eternity for the torps to reload.  129 seconds to be precise.  I'm torn between the torp reload upgrade which brings that "down" to 110 seconds, a BIG improvement, and the gun reload which yields a 3.2 second reload on his 6 rifles.  That compares to Gearing at 2.6s, Z-52 at 3.5, Khab at 4.0 but with 8 rifles and ... Shima has torps right?  (5.7s)

Right now I'm running the gun reload.  How can you argue with 112.5 rounds per minute of Stalinium shells leaving the muzzle at 950 meters per second.  No, that's not a typo.  With AFT, the firing range is 13.2 km and you can precisely hit anything at maximum range.

Yup, that 6k detection in a VMF DD allows all sorts of hilarity to happen.

 

The torpedoes are the second fastest reloading at T10.

 

Torpedo reload gives a bigger boost in terms of percentage.

 

I'm not running AFT. The smaller gun bloom lets you do all sorts of fun stuff and disappear seconds after firing.

That is insane... I wish the Akizuki gained defensive fire. Sad considering it is an AA destroyer.

It needs 1/4 pen on its HE more than that.
