Grozovoi Full AA build

Hey Folks,

I just want to share my Grozo build for you. It's a full AA build and it's specially meant to give CV players a giant F........ Personally I play my Groz only when I'm dived up with a carrier since this build gives up CE thus causing inferior cap contestability. However if you have a CV in your division, he can spot for you ahead thus nullifying your worse concealment on cap contesting. So far I had great success.

 

Captain Skill:

You literally take every skill that is relevant to AA. I would get BFT, AFT first followed by MFAA and SI. You drop CE for maximum AA but if you want to compromise, drop MFAA and pick up CE instead. for remaining 2 points, that I don't have, pick up AR to cover lacking gunnery support skills/upgrades.

Here also basically everything that is relevant to AA. AAM 1, AA mod 2&3, DAAFM 1, SGM 2, CSM 1. If you don't have DAAFM 1 take PM 1. Also You don't have to take AAM 1 but personally I want to preserve as much AA as possible for entire match, hence I picked it up.

 

Here are some results:

Have fun shooting at planes :)

You don't need SI as you probably don't use all your defensive fire AA in a battle, especially if you use premium consumables. This is how I would do a full AA Grozovoi captain.

I run SI because I use DFAA almost everytime when it's available and mostly I end up using 3 in regular duration matches and all 4 in long matches.

Heh, you're lucky then. Most games when I run my Grozovoi, the enemy CV stays well clear of me so I always have at least 1 or 2 defensive fires sitting unused by the time the game ends.

that's why I only play Groz when dived up with CV. I ask my CV to drag planes/fight above me so that I can use DF effectively

I think my Groz and Gearing are both set up as hunters with a side of AA. CE and RPF, then DF as an upgrade. Both have proven useful.

 

In any case, that certainly looks like a build to ruin a carier's day with! :cap_rambo:

Even when played with a CV in a division, the enemy CV still doesn't want to go anywhere near me, even with the my division buddy pulling planes over.

And here I was proud of bagging 39 planes with Grozovoi!  I have Concealment Expert in place of MFAA. Losing a turret in a DD is disaster, so I have MAM 1. The second upgrade slot is the only one where I focused on AA. 

Now if you want to torture the red CV (and who doesn't?), click "P" at the start of the match. Light up your AA range and AA detection range circles on the minimap. Wait for red planes to actually see you, and then focus fire.  Lulz. 

I understand building Grozovoi purely for AA. However, she has wonderful guns. 950 m/s muzzle velocity. Great firing arcs. Good fire chance. Russian AP (need I say more?). IOW she's a good DD.  You can turn Akizuki into a good AA platform too, but that's kind of missing the point.

I've had the opposite experience with the Groz. The last 2 times I've been triple-torped by planes, I've only shot down ONE plane each time. And that is with DF and a full AA spec.
