Changes to Test Ships — Closed Testing 0.11.3

Based on testing results, we’re applying changes to French cruisers, as well as American cruiser San Diego, Italian carrier Aquila and German Supercruiser Clausewitz.

 

The following changes will be applied to the live server before the end of this week:

VII Toulon

  • Deck armor increased: 25 to 30 mm
  • Citadel deck armor increased: 20 to 30 mm

VIII Cherbourg

  • Deck armor increased: 27 to 30 mm
  • Citadel deck armor increased: 20 to 30 mm

IX Brest

  • Deck armor increased: 27 to 30 mm
  • Citadel deck armor increased: 25 to 30 mm

X Marseille

  • Deck armor increased: 30 to 36 mm
  • Citadel deck armor increased: 20 to 30 mm

VIII San Diego

  • Maximum SAP shell damage reduced: 2,500 to 1,950
  • Main battery reload time increased: 5 to 5.25 s.

The following changes will be applied with the release of Update 0.11.4

VII Toulon

  • Depth Charge Airstrike reload time reduced: 60 to 30 s.

VIII Cherbourg

  • Depth Charge Airstrike reload time reduced: 90 to 45 s.

IX Brest

  • Depth Charge Airstrike reload time reduced: 90 to 45 s.

X Marseille

  • Depth Charge Airstrike reload time reduced: 90 to 45 s.

VIII San Diego

  • Main battery reload time increased: 5.25 to 5.5 s.

VIII Aquila

  • Changed the torpedo bomber parameters:
    • Number of planes in a squadron reduced: 8 to 6;
    • Number of planes on deck reduced: 26 to 21;
    • Distance between planes during the torpedo launch is reduced by half. This will reduce the gap between the launched torpedoes.
    • Reduced the reticle dispersion when maneuvering during preparation for an attack and when attacking;
    • The damage received by the attack flight in the aiming state reduced by 10%.
  •  Changed the attack aircraft parameters:
    • Reduced altitude during preparation for an attack and at the moment of aiming;
    • Attack preparation time reduced from 2.5 to 1.75 s;
    • Increased the reticle reduction speed when preparing to attack and when attacking;
    • Increased rocket velocity, which will allow taking a slightly smaller lead before attacking and facilitate penetration of 38mm deck armor more frequently.

German Supercruiser Clausewitz

  • Updated the Depth Charge Airstrike camera settings — now they are the same as of other Supercruisers.

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.
