Why doesn't Ishizuchi have her full complement of AA guns?

The specs on Ishizuchi list it as having only 6 mid range AA guns. if you use the camera at the port screen, it shows those guns being mounted on the deck, 3 to a side.

And yet, if you look at the model, you can see 2 identical looking guns mounted on top of each turret. What do these guns do if they are not AA Guns? Ishi has just pitiful AA. 10 more barrels wont make it great but at least might shoot down a plane now and then.

if memory serves, some Navies used those guns for training purposes. It was cheaper to fire those then the main battery.

Dreadnought did have some secondary guns mounted for a time on her turrets, but those were later moved back to the quarter deck.

Also, since Ishizuchi is basically a WW1 Battlecruiser (it being a design variant of the Kongo), it does have its complete AA armament. Remember, in WW1 and just after, aircraft were not really considered 'dangerous' to the surface fleet.

It's also worth mentioning that WG didn't always have the tech for guns mounted atop turrets to be active - it was added some time after launch, and Ishizuchi is a ship from before this time. So it's possible it was simply overlooked.

wth did I just read

 

You guys are probably right that they are training guns, but in the interest of "I'd rather see my ship get buffed" Imma go out on a limb and say you're all wrong. They're AA guns. Can I get one person to come in here and agree with me whether you agree with me or not?  Thanks.

It doesn't seem anyone else has the same emotional investment in Ishizuchi as you do.

You're. The world in general suffers from an abysmal lack of humor right now.

They don't know what real power looks like.
