Let us give them that, because that is what the designs are known for. The whole point of project F51 and V7 is anti-AA ship that can escort large ships in fleet. 

Well this won't buff the ships too much (in their current state, the torp seems to be terrible, and everything else just so-so), it gives a fun way to spec and use these ships in accordance with historical gimmicks. I mean, if without defensive AA, what is the practical difference of having a score 80 AA or 50 AA, since your AA is not enough to defend yourself neither your allies anyway. 

Thoughts?

This is why CVs are in this state.  A good CV player can only go after a bad player now...

Eh, truth be told, it left me kinda salty how in the description akizuki was "specialized in AA", yet there is no DFAA. Due to her clumsiness vs CV torp bombers  it would be helpful. That said, my Aki with minimal AA investment can tackle T9-10 CVs without much trouble unless cross dropped. 

But who doesnt :Smile_hiding:

if a DD is shooting at planes, the enemies are probably shooting at it. not always the greatest idea.

also, USN DDs from T5 and up have the option for it already.

Yes, you don't want to be shooting at aircraft except as a last resort as it "spots" you. And there are already some AA DD's.

But , you really should not worry about an AA build on any DD , as WG are making CV's "rarer" as we go , so AA builds are wasted builds(they seem to be "hating' on US CV's and subsequently US ships the most in this aspect, because  by default , so many US  ships had AA builds IRL), do them if you have nothing else to do, otherwise build something "useful"
