yup iowa has the best AA when it comes to BB's and wiping 2 complete squads is no problem for it the only thing about iowa is its weak belt armor.

Called that before Alpha even happened. 

 

Everyone thought Yamato was going to be a good AA ship since it has so many AA guns. 

 

Alas, Iowa shows that numerous "great" AA guns are going to be better than an overwhelming amount of "mediocre" AA guns.

Unless they've modeled it wrong, it shouldn't even be that weak. 310mm belt isn't anything to sneeze at.

The Iowas were well-protected ships. I guess they had to give them some kind of weakness, though I seem to recall long before Alpha some developer comments that basically equated the ship to a battlecruiser. That's an incorrect perspective to have, but it makes you wonder if that mindset carried through into the in-game design.

Clearly the pilots in those squads haven't realized that its jamming them and they flew right in to the deflector shields.

So, what are the Iowa's weak points?

 

She doesn't have great torpedo armor, and turns like a bus.  Think that pretty much covers it.

Pretty easy for Iowa to sink with 5 tier 10 IJN TB squads attacking her at the same time :sceptic:

The Iowa's AA is just amazing overall, powerful, decently ranged for AA, and fun to look at.
