Jean Bart

Chop planes down easy.

Heaps of secondary damage

Quick loading MB

Even in co-op makes plenty of coin.

Alsace in Secondary Spec can do the same function in the same tier.  IMO, Alsace's secondaries have better angles to fire than JB's.  Heck, to even get the 152mm secondaries to fire for JB, you have to show a lot of sides, while an angled Alsace can also get all 3 152mm turrets to fire without showing too much.  Her AA in Secondary Spec is still great for Co-op purposes.

 

Still, it would be amusing to see what JB can do with AA Spec.  The numbers look ridiculous.  More importantly, JB's AA is not reliant on exposed gun mounts, they're in enclosed turrets.

Not to mention a possible aura range of 6.5km on those 400+ dps AA mounts plus the 200+ dps long 7.2km range mounts coupled with manual AA skill and you're looking at close to 900 dps of AA that the planes have to weather through

This doesn't even include the AA mod for the 6th equipment slot.

Sure.  16 Harpoons, and some Tomahawk ASMs.  Should get rid of those pesky destroyers...

Yeah, AA is the USN national flavor after all.

Each battle would last about 45 seconds. 30 to load, 15 for the shells to land in the enemy spawn point.

But it wouldnt end, the cruisers would all citadel erase, the BBs would get 3* fires and a cit hit and the DDs would all take 10% over pens.  CVs, well those dont exist anyway.

They did get 8" sabot rounds at some point. Might be a more realistic consumable for thin-skinned targets.

Weren't those laser-guided? 40km range with Russian railgun arcs, oh boy.

Everything within 2km is instantly dev-struck.

Everything within 5km takes a fire in all four/three sectors and a flood from hull concussion.

Everything within 10km has all its modules trashed and requiring DCP.

No more radars for the rest of the game (although valve radars might be immune to EMP; IDK. The antennae wouldn't last, though).

All ships suffer irreversible and irreparable 1% per minute health loss as the crew sickens from fallout exposure.

I see all these negative comments about JB but people seem to not see this is likely designed with the new carrier revamp in mind... so they need to consider that when looking at it.  and I am referring to youtube stuff and other forum posts not strictly this thread. I think it is an interesting addition to be sure.

JB's aa is pretty impressive.  I watched her deny 7 squadrons last night in a co-op match.  If it flies, it dies.

I can't see her secondaries (based on location) being better than my Bismarck.  11.2km and deadly.

I just want Sanshikidan for my Musashi.  See here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Shiki_(anti-aircraft_shell)
