ST 0.10.10. New ships

Pan-Asian researchable Tier V-X cruisers, as well as Tier IX Pan-Asian cruiser Dalian have been added to the game for testing.

 

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary. Announced adjustments and features may change multiple times during testing. The final information will be published on our game's website.

Researchable Pan-Asian cruisers will be added to the game for testing:

  • Tier V Chung King
  • Tier VI Rahmat
  • Tier VII Chumphon
  • Tier VIII Harbin
  • Tier IX Sejong
  • Tier X Jinan

The Tier V-VII ships were developed on the basis of real British and American ships.

Harbin is a small cruiser project that was being developed in the USSR at the turn of the 1930-1940s.

The Tier IX and X cruisers are variants of light cruiser projects developed in the United States during World War II.

The ships of the new branch are distinguished by their small-caliber guns, high rate of fire, and powerful deep-water torpedoes, but rather low survivability.

All cruisers have a Smoke Generator consumable with a reduced reload time and, starting from Tier VI - Defensive AA Fire consumable.

Tier VIII-X ships are equipped with the Torpedo Reload Booster and, starting from Tier IX, the Repair Party consumable. 

Pan-Asian cruiser Dalian, Tier IX:

A variant of a small cruiser project developed in the USSR featuring dual-purpose artillery (MK-6) with the enhanced anti-submarine armament of the post-war period.

The ship is armed with ten 130mm guns in five turrets with flat shell ballistics and four triple torpedo tubes with standard torpedoes, unlike researchable Pan-Asian cruisers. Dalian is equipped with a Smoke Generator with short reload time, Repair party and Hydroaccoustic Search, and also has a decent concealment. However, the ship has weak armor and a high-placed citadel.
