To level AA gunners properly, Level arm. Sailors to 120 then class. You can also fit like 280 vets on them as well and get very epic gunners.
The sole + you got from having a dead weight on your ship for 120 levels tough, is epic D version gun. And its quite a double edged blade.
Less reload, less range, less req space. Less range than D with some sets is REALLY short btw. I'd take 5/38 mk 38 L over 6/47 DP A any day.
So you want to be able to put up an extremely short range anti-bomber spam screen? Sure bother doing that.
But you are much better with regular gunners imo, which allow you to decently carry AA in the BB1-5 grind (safe Nevada and pre-remod BB2 (exception NM30) who have crap T slot space) and also enable you to carry HH if you so wish. AA gunners cannot.
