When I realized the 1945 built PT boat I was just on has more AA than the British DD's teased.

Quick somebody drop a meme bomb LOL

Amazing how much firepower they could cram on the decks of these things.

thats probably due to the fact that the DDs teased are to T6 and till T5 or so is usually WW1 and pre-WW2 era, where CVs hadnt yet become the major force of naval combat, and as you said, this PT boat is from 1945, *edit* yup, i just looked them up to the T5, the Acasta, all were WW1/Pre-WW2, so they didnt really have much in the way of AA at the time
