Is it worth putting manual AA on a BB or should hat skill be used on Cruisers and dd's. I'm using currently on my JB but maybe BFT would be a better choice for better DPM.

Eh, considering how long it takes BBs to activate/switch sectors, I don't know if they would benefit much from having the shorter switch time. DDs drop from 5 seconds to 4 and cruisers drop from ten to 8.

I'm sure there are people out there with a much better grasp on the math than me with better feedback though.

Oh dude, on JB? Yeah, go for BFT. You can spec out Jean Bart for a secondary build that works quite handily and doubles as a soft-AA build simply by virtue of having AFT and BFT. Your AA rating is already good enough that I wouldn't worry too much about actively swapping sectors. Granted, shaving your switch time down to 9.6~ seconds makes swapping more comfortable to be sure, I'm just not sure if it's worth 4 points.

Then again I have a bad habit of ignoring sector reinforcement, so take my advice with a side of salt. And not the angry kind.

Skip MAA, you lack the tools other ship classes have for AA.

If you want to survive planes, make sure you have Fire Prevention.

MFCAA drops the swap time by 20%. You also get ±20% sector buff/nerf.

DD goes from 5 to 4 seconds

CL/CA goes from 10 to 8 seconds

BB goes from 12 to 9.6 seconds

CV goes from 15 to 12 seconds

 

For a ship with good secondaries, BFT and AFT works best IMO as you get the normal secondary buff as the DPS for AA gets buffed. Any BB should sport BoS and/or FP. Both are preferred if you can.
