Flint has unlimited charges as well. 

 

Functionally, it's 5-7 charges at most during a match.

Its a AA boat its always been unlimited.

Now its dead ,new meta killed it.

 

Much like Mark Twain, reports of its demise are somewhat premature. Since the rework dropped, I've had a 57% WR with it.

Sure is limited; battle time limit, survivability, cool down periods-there are only so many per battle.

Don't we need the same analytics as with unlimited planes to dispel this myth as well.

I jest.

Unlimited DFAA was one of the first consumable gimmicks in the game.

With unlimited DFAA, I wonder if DFAA Mod I + Jack of All Trades + November Foxtrot was ever viable? Shame there isn't a US captain that gets Handyman (The 10% bonus instead of the usual 5%).

Both Atlanta and Flint have a 40 sec duration with 180 sec or 120 sec cooldown for regular or premium consumable. JoaT is -5% cooldown, so that makes the cooldown for the premium DFAA 114 sec at the lowest. With a 40 sec duration, you are looking at 154 sec total, for 7.8 times a game. So 7 times a game is the max whether you have JoaT and/or the slot 2 Special DFAA module for a 48 sec duration.

Forgot the November Foxtrot flag. It is another -5%.  So, if you have premium DFAA, JoaT and that signal flag, you just can squeeze in 8 uses of DFAA on Flint and Atlanta on a 20 min game.

forgot to add you have to use prem DFAA

In what way? She still burns surface ships to the ground just as good and is a significant threat to even T8 planes. She was in a bad spot when the rework dropped but since then her pitiful midrange AA has been removed, letting her quite nice long range AA to cover that area.

5.8km max AA range isn't a lot of area to defend the team with.  And if the CV is going after an AA Cruiser like Atlanta, they were an idiot and not much of a CV threat to begin with.  It's having the range to protect teammates that didn't have good AA.  That's what the current AA system fails at.

CVs are weak enough right now that you don't really need huge range to rack up plane kills. By the time they spot you and start turning around you have melted their entire squadron if they are a T6 or wiped out about half of it if they are T8. And that's if they can dodge flak, if they can't even T8 squads cease to exist. With 5.8km range you pretty much turn an entire flank into a no fly zone.

Oh yeah Flint's mid range is better than Atlanta's mid range. I wait for those planes at the 3.9-4K bubble then pop DFAA.  And it's bye-bye like N Sync's song.

Atlanta does not have mid range AA anymore. It's just long and short.
