New ships - Closed testing 0.11.6

German battleship Anhalt, Spanish destroyer Álvaro de Bazán, European superdestroyer Dalarna and Japanese submarine I-56 have been added to the game for testing.

 

German battleship Anhalt, Tier VIII

A battleship with an original layout, armed with fifteen 350mm main caliber guns in five three-gun turrets.

These relatively small caliber guns are compensated by their number, high salvo weight, and high armor penetration of high-explosive shells.

The ship is well protected against both HE and SAP shells. However, her citadel is quite vulnerable to enemy shells compared to the typical armor scheme of German battleships.

In close combat, Anhalt can surprise the enemy with her powerful 700mm torpedoes mounted in four single tube torpedo tubes. At the same time, unlike most German battleships, she has no Hydroacoustic Search.

Spanish destroyer Álvaro de Bazán, Tier X

A high speed destroyer leader with powerful artillery armament. The destroyer is similar to the Italian Capitani Romani type ships.

The main feature of the Álvaro de Bazán is the eight 135mm main caliber guns with HE and high-powered AP shells, as well as the ability to use the Alternative firing mode "Burst fire" previously available only to some superships.

Thanks to her fast 40 knot speed, she can rapidly attack enemy ships and deal heavy damage in a very short amount of time.

Torpedo armament is represented by two four-tubed torpedo launchers. The torpedoes have good range, but not the highest speed and damage.

Consumables are represented by the classic destroyer set of Engine Boost and Smoke Generator.

European superdestroyer Dalarna

A versatile destroyer, combining powerful artillery and torpedo armament with the most modern AA defense equipment for the 1950s.

Dalarna is a classic representation of the European destroyer line: powerful torpedo armament, strong AA defense, no smoke, and a decent caliber for her main guns, which allows the ship to repel the enemy in an artillery duel.

The main difference between this ship and its predecessor, Halland, is the additional turret, which gives it one of the best damage per minute of her type.

In addition, the Dalarna can use two types of torpedoes in combat:

  • The familiar "European" torpedoes with high speed and low damage.
  • Slow and not the most long-range torpedoes with increased damage.

The superdestroyer's consumables are represented by the Engine Boost, Repair Party, and Defensive AA Fire.

Japanese submarine I-56, Tier VIII

I-56 belonged to the third and final series of the second modification «Otsu» class submarines -Type B Mod. 2 (I-54 class), which included 3 ships and operated in the Imperial Japanese Navy from 1944-1945. «Otsu» was one of the most numerous submarine classes in the Japanese Navy during the Pacific war period. Submarines of this type were fully suited to the conditions of the Pacific theater of war - well armed, fast-moving, highly autonomous, with a short dive capability, and suitable for a wide variety of combat missions. However, the price for the high performance characteristics was a large displacement and the cost of the submarine.

The main armament of the submarine is composed of six torpedo tubes with long-range torpedoes in the bow of the hull, as well as a 140mm main caliber gun with SAP shells, under direct player control.

The sub has excellent surface maneuverability, but it is significantly lower underwater and has limited dive capacity. This makes long dives impossible for the I-56.

This submarine's combat tactics are similar to those of the Japanese torpedo destroyers: playing on the surface and regularly attacking enemy ships with torpedoes without homing from long range.
