Kitakami testing

In Update 12.6 we will resume testing Kitakami - a cruiser whose main armament consists of five quadruple-tube torpedo launchers on each side. 


Before the beginning of this test, a technical setup of the ship will be conducted in Update 12.5:

  • The geometry and textures of the ship have been updated
  • Kitakami's armor was updated with the new tech that was added in Update 0.10.9.
  • Redistributed HP in different parts of the ship without affecting the overall amount of HP:
    • Bow - HP increased from 3,800 to 4,000
    • Stern - HP reduced from 2,800 to 2,700
    • Superstructures - HP reduced from 1,600 to 1,500:
  • Citadel deck armor reduced from 50mm to 30mm
  • Auxiliary Room armor reduced from 30mm to 16mm

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.
