I unlocked the Hsienyang (but I noticed it on the Gadjah Mada too): Is it worth to have a captain with AFT on the heigher tier pan-asian destroyers? The shell flight time seems quite long with AFT und my aiming skill with such long flight time (14sec) is... not that good. With the upcoming CV revamp we get a free respec and I would have a chance to drop AFT for free.

I would tend to agree that it is not that good, especially because of how quickly you run out of commander points. It is far more advantageous to have concealment expert as your first 4 point skill, and then RPF as your second.

AFT is not particularly viable on PanAsian DDs; there are a couple of categories that make  AFT a good pick on DDs:

  1. Specialized DD with focus on AA (Kidd).
  2. Gunboat DD with focus on gunnery, speed and evasion (Kiev, Tashkent, Khabarovsk).
  3. DD that benefits both on a gunnery and an AA level (Udaloi, Grozovoi).
  4. Memes (Harugumo).

Bottom line, you would be better off with Concealment Expert in your case.

Save it for something more worthwhile. Arcs are hard to hit anything smaller than a BB and your gun bloom means you are spotted from further away.

Thanks for your replies. I picked AFT when I played the Ashan / Fushun and they have the russian gun arcs. I was worried that the T9 / T10 boats would switch back to them.

AFT on most DDs is a mistake, especially on those with already floaty shells.

Playing Hsienyang is a mistake. Should just FXP it.

Where possible I even run the stock GFCS on US and PA DDs so I can disengage a bit quicker by kiting out of gun range.  Extra range on these DDs in general is a bad thing.
