so i did i slight comparsion with the minotaur vs worcester (of course worcester stats may change) and if its going to get the standard x3 40 second AA boost the Des Moines has this thing can deplane a carrier (theoretically if we had 100 plane squadron) in one use of the consumable.

heres the stats with you want to look at them: 

with USS Worcesters stats released (THE TESTING STATS) i looked at the aa numbers did calculatons and COMPLETE aa build compared with minotaur the stats are of the following:

 

 

MINOTAUR: 
152mm avg dmg - 300.9, 8.4 km range.
76.2mm avg dmg - 488 7km range.
20mm avg dmg - 94 2.4km range.

total average per second: 882.9dmg.

total average per 30 seconds: 26,487

average midway planes per second (fighters) = .46

average midway planes per 30 seconds (fighters) = 13.86

 

 

WORCESTER:
152mm avg dmg - 581.4 8.4km range
76.2mm avg dmg - 1,608.9 7km range
20mm avg dmg - 339.45 2.8km range.

total average per second: 2,529.75

total average per 30 seconds: 75,892.5

average midway planes per second (fighters) = 1.32

average midway planes per 30 seconds (fighters) = 39.73

 

WORCESTERS STATS ARE LISTED WHEN DEFAA IS ACTIVE. these are the non-active stats below.

152mm avg dmg - 228 8.4km range

76.2mm avg dmg - 1,038 7km range

20mm avg dmg - 219 2.8km range

yeah but if you thought the minotaur was OP against carriers the 76.2mm guns without defaa alone are more powerful then minotaur

I think this is the response you'll get from anybody except a CV main here.

all it takes is a couple of HE salvos, and a SMART CV wont try and drop on a USN cruiser till later in the battle anyway, if they try to drop on a USN cruiser at the beginning they deserve to have their planes shredded, because at this point, it should be common knowledge that the high tier USN cruisers have AA that shreds planes out of the air

Yeh but its not shreding anymore. Hell i think a nuclear SAM or land based missle would be less effective.

I don't think the Minotaur's OP , It's a necessary hard counter against the cancer that is Midway . I bought the Atlanta out of pure hatred for CV's , And now If I get to rip Ashasio's a new one with it as well it'll be money well spent on chemotherapy .

Still couldn't be happier about it , and still could care less about the threat to Midway's planes . CV's are too influential as it is . I'll be in a good position having Cleveland to get the Worcester rather quickly and plan on Mining CV tears with it .

IMO, it's not about deterring the CV from attacking the High Tier USN Cruiser.  What it's about is what can you defend with your AA.

 

IMO, the 2 greatest advantages Worcester has over Des Moines is Stealth & Long Range AA.  Worcester can get into position more easily than DM can, i.e. snuggle up closer to friendly DDs going for the caps without getting spotted.  DM is decent in stealth, but her AA range is average for high tier, so unless DM gets help like friendly DDs smoking for her to get closer, or there are islands, DM can't get too close, and have great cap coverage with AA.

 

Worcester, in contrast, with her better stealth can creep closer a bit more easily, and on top of that, has the long range to cover the capping DDs better.

 

Of course, don't make this out as a post saying DM will be irrelevant.  It's just Worcester's AA and especially stealth will let her do some things far better than DM.
