The only upgrade listed is 6 AA guns.  Are there other unlisted benefits?  I'm not sure 6 AA guns are worth 1.8 million credits..

What does it do for the AA rating?

If you are just grinding to the next tier and don't want it then don't get it, If you are going to play Nagato a lot cause it's a great BB then buy it.

It is never not a good idea to get the final upgraded hull if you will be playing Nagato often.

I actually got to the Amagi before they added the the B hull or rather made the B hull the C hull and added another B hull. But I kept mine and like everyone said if you plan on keeping the ship its a good investment.

While the hull only shows an increase of 6 to the rating, you need to compare the AA on hull B to hull C. Hull C generally will either increase the range of the existing guns or improve their DPS, it's not just a case of you getting 6 more AA guns for your money.

You will have to unlock it using EXP though. You don't have to buy it.

Usually the AA guns are different too, and more effective.

Like all cannons instead of shorter range  machine guns. 

 

Sometimes soft stats are improved along with rudder shift times and more hp.

Click it once and look at the stat bars on the right. It will show all enhancements to the stats. Open the drop down for the ones that change and look at improvements and unimprovements

That's a nice Nagato you've got there, Jesus.  It's a shame our Nagato is missing a few AA guns and range finders on its turrets...

I'm also using B hull.  I'll keep this ship and upgrade it eventually, but there's so much other stuff on the horizon that I need credits for that it's going to be awhile before Nagato gets that last bump to her AA.

WG really should take the current Nagato and make her Mutsu proper, then give us the actual Nagato.  Then do the same for the current Kongou being turned into Hiei and then giving us Kongou proper.

 

Since both are not using the actual final forms of the name-class (someone mentioned other ships not actually following the final design upgrade, but I only recall Nagato is using Mutsu's model and Kongou is using Hiei's model).

6 months in, past CBT, OBT, and release... It's too late to pull out now.

I've been debating this, since not having premium credits are really rough - I don't think it's worth 1.8M credits at all in a game where the only real benefit is very close range (3km) AA benefit.

 

Maybe if more people play non-fighter load out CVs...

I've been seeing a return to the bomber heavy load outs, but still not what it used to be.

 

The C hull does increase the AA rating by almost 25%, but puts the bulk of the damage into the close range guns.  It's going to be more of Revenge AA than Preventative AA.

Looking at the AA, it's worth it to go the C hull. you go from 66 DPS in the close range 25s to 120+ in the close range 25s.

I would recommend getting the hull if you wish to enjoy the Nagato longer, if you wish to go on, skip it, and move to the Amagi.

Nagato's C hull is definitely worth it. I wouldn't say top priority, but the AA is a worthwhile investment.

 

To all saying its close range revenge AA, the Japanese 25mm guns give IJN ships very respectable in game (contrary to real life). They make up for their average damage in numbers, and have 3km base range. That's 1km more than the AA on the oerlikon, which is the bulk of USN BB AA. With AFT, that's a respectable 3.6km.

 

Alone they won't do much alone, but if you have support it can and will kill planes that linger too long. I shot down 7 taiho planes with my Nagato the other day. 2 to 3 torp bombers shot down 3 attacks in a row. A CA handled popped defensive fire each time and the damage was minimal.

 

Of course, without a CA I would be dead, but with him I barely took 1/3 damage from 3 attack runs.
