ST 0.9.10, Tone, Ise, Werner Voss

The concepts of hybrids and skip bombers will be tested in the near future. During the test, ships and planes will be adjusted taking both their new type of gameplay and combat efficiency into account. We're now ready to share their initial parameters.

 

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary and subject to change during testing. Any showcased features may or may not end up on the main server. The final information will be published on our game's website.

Three versions of Tone and Ise were added, differing in the type of planes: Tone1 and Ise1 carry torpedo bombers, Tone2 and Ise2 - dive bombers with HE bombs, Tone3 and Ise3 - attack aircraft. Hybrids have less firepower than usual for their type and tier, and should therefore combine their standard armament with their planes to deal effective damage. Each of them carries one full squadron with one attack flight. Aircraft take off quickly and don't return to the ship. The restoration of aircraft goes not one by one, but the entire squadron at once. Hybrids' squadrons don't have consumables, and their engine boost is less effective than that of carriers' planes.
