A Tip For New Tier 8-10 USN CA/CL Captains in CV Matches

Should you pop your defensive AA to protect an allied DD/BB nearby you even if you know that you will be deleted by AP bombs 40s later?

If the enemy CV is Lexington/Enterprise/Essex/Graf Z/Midway.

Please Check whether they are using AP bombers! 

If they are using AP bombers, think twice before you pop your DFAA to shoot down his torpedo bombers! 

If you used DFAA to shoot down their torpedo bombers, you might be citadeled by AP bombs when your DFAA is in cooldown

I have seen so many USN CA/CL got deleted by AP bombs recently because their DFAA was baited by torpedo bombers , so I think I should make a statement here.

It does bring a moral question though.

Should you pop your defensive AA to protect an allied DD/BB nearby you even if you know that you will be deleted by AP bombs 40s later?

Easy - I run hydro-acoustic search instead of DFAA on Baltimore. There just aren't enough carriers out there to worry about it.

I always run AA spec on any ship that has decent AA. I guarantee that if I don't I'll be endlessly matched against CVs.

I was in my Groz. I saved the DM with my DFAA because his was baited.
