With all the controversy surrounding the rework I feel it is high time for some hard data. Since some cannot or don't want to download the PTS here is the relevant AA stats for T10 ships. Note I did not include modules or captain skills, this is the base stats only.

Dive bombers: 2970 hp per plane, 12 planes per squadron, 35640 total hp plus repairs for 10%

Conclusions, Musings, and general TLDR:

AA bubbles do not overlap. Short range AA is useless, if you are shooting down planes it is with your flak clouds. All flak clouds do good damage if they hit. The most important stats for determining if AA is good or not is number of flak clouds and range of medium and long range AA. This means at T10 the best AA ships are those with no short range AA. Conqueror, Rebublique, Henri IV, Daring, and Z52 fit this bill for surface ships. Worchester still has heavy AA despite it's blind spot. Montana and Gearing have poor AA now(with Gearing only being better than the Shimakaze). Speaking of DFAA it now boosts continuous DPS by 50% and flak damage by 100%. IT's nice IF you have enough flak to hit but otherwise does little.

Thanks for posting this. I still have some questions though.

1. How much time between salvos of flak? Is that static, or does it vary per ship? And do mods and skills that boost damage boost the damage of the cloud, or the frequency? (I assume the former, but I've been wrong before.)

2. Do range increasing mods and skills still exist? And if they do, do they increase the worthless short range dead-zone?

Thank you in advance.

The amount of time between salvos is unknown and unlisted. Continuous damage tics seem to be once per second but can miss it seems. AA mod 1 increase the number of flak clouds in the medium and long range bubbles by a flat 2 per salvo. AA mod 2 increases damage of both flak and continuous DPS by 15%. For captain skills you have BFT which increases continuous damage by 10%, AFT which increases flak damage by 15%, and MFAA which increases sector reinforcement by 20% and decreases shift time by 20%. CVs can also take skills that decrease the damage their planes take by 10% and have various modules that increase plane HP(up to 25% more hp for one squadron type with 10% for the rest).  

 

Nothing affects AA range anymore period. What you have is what you have.

I'm wondering if the small / medium / large vs medium / large is a deliberate experiment by WG to test AA balance.

Hopefully they will give us some insight, if only so we can test more intelligently...and give better feedback.

I kinda figured the continuous DPS AA was useless from watching videos. Planes spend virtually no time that close to a ship since they are so fast. It is a similar problem in the current system, where anything with less than 3ish km range was bad and anything less than 2 km range might as well not exist, except it seems even more acute in the rework. At least the current system lets you increase AA range.

From the earlier tests it really isn't as weak as people think. Especially on ships like Montana with a lot of it contnious DPS will kill the equivalent of a plane every few seconds which adds up fast when you have a small squadron.

 

WRT burst rate, IIRC from the tests it was 5 seconds for long range and 0.5 seconds for mid. Hence a powerful mid-range band is a lot more important. There is a moderate counterbalance to that in that heavy AA guns produce bigger and longer-lasting bursts. The same is true of high caliber mid range guns.

Sub_Octavian has updated REDDIT on ship AA. See the thread below.
