CL secondaries as AA?

Hey all,

 

Just purchased the USS Cleveland today and had a question about the secondaries acting as AA. Do the AI automatically engage aircraft with the secondary turrets(the ones listed as both artillery and AA), or only when the defensive fire skill is activated? If it's all the time, what does defensive fire do? There doesn't seem to be a tooltip explaining it in game.

The secondaries do count towards your ship's AA stat, and although you cannot see a firing animation, they do deal damage to enemy aircraft.


EDIT: Also, I'd advise against posting in Game Guides and Tutorials unless you actually have a guide that you want to post.

Oh, can a mod move this to wherever is appropriate?

 

So do the secondaries always work as AA, or only with defensive fire active?

in future some secondaries will be able to act as AA like the Cleveland's secondaries.

 

It will definitely start having a animation soon enough, otherwise, it looks...odd.

What will they prioritize shooting, planes or surface targets.

They will split their focus until one of the targets is eliminated, or you manually focus them using your Ctrl+click function, which also grants slight boosts to range and dps.

They fire on both at the same time, with the same number of guns. This creates an effect where instead of your ship having only, say, 10DP guns, it's as if your ship has 10 single purpose guns for surface targets and 10 AA guns for AA targets, from the same barrel... if you get what I mean.
