I am just wondering who has the highest Secondary Kill Count per Carrier is. My Ryujo has about 23 Secondary Kills.

One of my most laughable deaths was being detonated by an afk Bogues secondaries.

The first Secondary achievement I got was with the Lexignton of all ships, back before they made it easier to get the achievement (you used to have to do like 40% of the total damage to a target with secondaries). Some DD kept trying, and failing, to torp me at point blank and refused to use his guns.

I got my first Close Quarters Expert with my Cleveland when those drunk gunners sank a Carrier.

A grand total of 7. 5 with the Hiryu, 2 with the Zuiho.

I killed a RYUJO with TIRPITZ's secondaries once without even realizing it was there.

I'd been so focused on dealing with a cruiser and another BB with the main battery, and hadn't realized that the RYUJO was on my disengaged side and getting torn up by the secondaries. First I knew it was there was when I got the ribbon for a kill, and saw close-quarters expert pop up. When I went back and watched the replay, it had even been full health at the beginning. Somehow it had just never gotten around to leaving my secondary range.

CV Secondaries only, not other ship types.

I got a few on my Graf Zeppelin. Secondary guns on carriers need to be buffed because a base range of 4km can't do crapto ships that get close. Im not asking that carriers can kill close dd's with their secondaries but I would like more range and a bit closer depression. DD's can sit out of range and kill you and you can't do crap.

None, but I've narrowed it down to not playing CVs as the reason.

Always love it when I see it happen, however.

I call those the good DDs, a good amount of DDs will close in on you and drop torpedos. They won't shoot at all either. No CQC in this battle but I think you may get what I mean.

Don’t laugh at Bogue’s secondaries! Both are tailstingers and are perfectly positioned for defending the ship when it’s running like a turtle to get away from something. (Better than Independence at least, which can’t even shoot back with popguns if attacked while its squads are away...)

Not sure about my Bogue’s secondary kills, but I know how many my Langley has; exactly ONE, at point blank range, against a Minekaze on Solomons...

...even the Minekaze driver said he could only laugh!

not sure how you would even find that stat.  CV account stats only break out number of kills you have a specific ship -- not how you killed the ships. 

I don't play CVs very often, but when I do it's Dos Equis.   I vaguely recall killing one low health DD with secondaries.

A few times with Lexington.  Even trolled a while with BFT+AFT with SBM2 mod installed and surprised some DDs that way.

WG should add another hull option for the Lexington that includes its original configuration with 8-inch guns.  Than we could really talk about some secondary kills from CVs.  Yup -- that's 4x2 8-inch cruiser guns on either side of the conn and stack.

Wows-numbers looks to keep track of it. I imagine it's available in game as well. The wows site doesn't look to display everything.

An old post of mine from 2016, but it's CV Secondaries related.  Still possible today.

a better shot of Lexington's 8-inch turrets.  I suppose maybe make a premium version of the Saratoga (sister ship) but give it the 8-inch guns.

Kaga has a bunch of 8" guns but I don't know of anyone ever speccing for it.  Even if there were, I don't play DDs enough to potentially run into that problem.

wasn't Kaga and Akagi both started as BCs and switched mid construction to CVs after the Washington Treaty?

Off the top of my head, not sure about Akagi, but Kaga was.  Those 200mm guns on her are leftovers from that legacy.  Even Lexington had those kind of roots, both the IJN & USN had these Battlecruisers but due to the treaty, they couldn't have them anymore so converted them into something that was allowed.

Akagi was laid down as an Amagi class Battlecruiser the same Amagi we have at tier 8. Kaga was laid down as a Tosa class battleship and was only converted to a carrier after an earthquake heavily damaged Amagi beyond repair. Not to be confused with the Amagi from late war which was an Unryu Class Carrier
