I figured she'd be a plane swatting terror but garbage as a gunboat.. and I'm right so far. Admittedly I'm not a great shot with 5"38's on those Eboats.

 Yeah she works. 19pt capt full out AA, BFT, AFT, and MFAA, no CE

That is pretty good. Didn't think Monaghan would do that well in AA like so. I got 5 Stars with Sims with 50 plane kills - Very respectable.

Was this with the a hull or the b hull?

You should try it in the Aigle - 1 plane shot down.  It's AA rating is 4 and that's with a 19 point Martel captain.

And quite a few Free XP flags/camo into the bargain, I see.

I might have a go with my Atlanta captain in her and see what happens.

I should think you'd want to take the A hull here, as you need the surface gunfire capability more than you do the extended range torpedoes. You could also take a C hull Farragut, but you'd need an AA-specced captain already trained for her.

I took a beating in this one as I moved all the way to the east border to catch them very early, it worked but my god those DB's get retarded accuracy.

Actually you don't need the guns, a lot of players are using Minsk, Leningrad, Haida, etc. killing the Eboats isn't really an issue for the team.

And yeah, I finally decided to rid myself of those "Pi day" camo's lol

Don't the 5" guns add to the AA, though? Or not on this ship?

Yes the 5' guns add to the long range AA. The trade off to get the extra 5" guns cost you a massive amount of short and midrange AA. Heres the numbers...

A hull: 29/35, 7.2/2.9

B hull: 8/60/26, 7.2/5.1/2.9

 The addition of the 40mm's on the B hull turn Mona into a plane murder machine for the Op. Better yet, you dont even have to focus the planes since MFAA doesnt effect 40mm guns.
