No, the guns are good.

The shells are bad.

That doesn't mean they can't perform under certain circumstances though, or when RNG smiles upon you.

Just to set things straight, were you floored when you leveled it?

I'm not even convinced the shells are as bad as people make them out to be. In their optimum ranges, Ashitaka and Mutsu don't have any issues penetrating the sides of cruisers or battleships. It's only when you get out to ranges of 17km or longer that it becomes a fruitless endeavour, and at that point, Ashitaka has some pretty good HE. 

And besides all that, Ashitaka's gun handling is the exact same as Amagi's. The only differences are the reload and her shells. Otherwise, they share the same sigma and dispersion. I've always known Amagi to be accurate, and Ashitaka is much the same provided you give the proper lead—which can admittedly be difficult with the shell's ballistics.

Unnecessary detonation was unnecessary.

 

RNG wanted to make the ship extra dead.

I laughed a little at the detonation, but I wasn't too surprised about the citadels. Ashitaka is rather good at punishing cruisers.

They're irrefutably worse than those on Nagato and Amagi, by a good margin.

Again, that doesn't mean they can't do work. Just that they're worse.

TBH, any BB can erase a light cruiser RNG willing.

Battleship guns are still battleship guns. 

 

Even the bad ones can lay down some serious hurt.

Ashitaka is more abusable by CVs! 

 

 

 

 

 

Er, wait. That's not a good thing.

Fast reload made irrelevant by putting roll on the wrong way.
