I am wondering if anyone has tried this as an AA DD?

The AA seems very good.

You're sarcastic here? Because statistically Yolo Emilio has relatively meh to poor AA, afaik.

Emilio has almost the same total AA DPS as Shimakaze. If that is your benchmark of "good AA" then I can see why you believe CVs are fine.

El2? You made an NA account with the same name just to post on here? My name has a superior one to my EU acc anyway.

I have run it 2 times.  I have shot down quite a few planes with no AA skills.

Seems pretty good for the guns it has.

But I got "AA defense expert" last rank season in a Shima because CV is showing me fun for 10 minutes non-stop.

Most likely you were getting attacked a lot. Paolo Emilio does not have particularly good AA.

Being Generous: better AA than some high tier DDs

Realisticly: only two DDs can effectively ward off CVs, and Yolo isn't one of them

that's probably 99% stupid CV player, 1% AA is working as intended

Lol about the player.

Z52 was extremely effective AA.  At least from my airplanes pov.  This was several patches ago so I dont know if that is still a thing.

To get an idea of what you mean, how was Z52's AA extremely effective?

The flak clouds were/are a solid wall.  Could never go around without massive damage.

What was the effect?

Did you stop first strikes? Stop a second strike? See the carrier unable to put up effective squads?

Despite popular option once you have few planes its a long time to regen.

Having 3 planes is basiclly like not having any.

So you depleted a carrier with Z52 AA. Thats the answer I was looking for. 

If 3 planes is the size of a strike, thats one full strike. Glass half full.

Let's just say the Gearing is capable with a AA build of earning expert air defense award in random. Ive gotten one of those at least once. I know it as the old clear skies award. Something like 35 minimum shootdowns.

All I need is a idiot CV Player to sit above my smoke and circle for two minutes at a time.

This is how I know not to trust anything you post.  If you think Z52 has strong AA.....
