The strongest AA for Tier 4

Since Tier 4 is infested with 4-6 CVs per game (will change soon, I know), the question is as follows:

1. Which BB has the strongest AA

2. Which Cruiser has the strongest AA

3. Which Dd has the strongest AA

Asking about T4 exclusively. Consider dmg factor and AA range.

Yubari has def AA, I'm pretty sure the RN BB has good AA, and probably the t4 US DD. That said, I prefer Katori at T3 to Yubari, as a fighter is useful.

BB's - at tier 4 none of them are really good but the Wyoming does well.

Cruisers - Yubari

DD's - You are kidding I hope. None of the tier 4 DD's have dual purpose guns which first show up on the Nickolas and none of them have more than machine gun class, .50 and under, for their AA which means they have to bob & weave when air power is present. The really dangerous DD AA doesn't show up until the upper tiers.

The Clemson does not have good AA.  

I think the RU dd is better.

Better is a relative thing, being better in a group that is horrible is nothing to write home about. As I already said DD AA doesn't start becoming good until they get dual purpose mounts which doesn't appear until the Nickolas and others at tier 5.

I do have Yubari and do enjoy her AA long-range and consumable, but I bet there is something stronger out there.

I don't have the tier 5 pasta boat and forgot about her, that is and amazing number of planes for a tier 5 ship to knock down.

Yubari is tier 4. Yahagi is tier 5.

I don't know about DDs but Yubari and Orion have done well for me. But I also haven't played T4 in a long time for most of my ships. So most of my stats are from the RTS days.

Must of the AA ships, CVs avoid start at tier 5.

German BBs at tier 4 are decent, they can also corner like sports car with a formula1 suspension.

Yubari and alwaki A for the cruisers.

DDs none that is known... If there was a DD with good AA, it would've been spammed like crazy.. CVs would complain about it in the forums...

You have limited options AA wise at tier 4...

According to the WoWs Stats, it would be the new French DD

Also, the new Italian cruiser beats Iwaki and Yubari?

Wyoming has been good for me, someone else mentioned Orion.

Yubari has good close AA, and DFAA, Katori has a fighter, as has been mentioned.

Vampire (Commonwealth DD,) seems surprisingly effective for a T3.

Mutsuki can make itself known, close in, at T5, (lots of 25mms for a DD,) but, to me at least, the destroyer AA king that far down is AA Nicholas, at T5.

My personal record is 71 in AA Nicholas, against T4 CVs.
