ST 0.10.2, changes to test ships

We adjusted the parameters of some ships based on testing results. The changes will be applied to German destroyers, Hyuga, Agincourt, and Vampire II.



VII Z-31

:

  • Removed the Hydroacoustic Search consumable;
  • Added the Smoke Generator consumable;
  • The angle at which the check for ricochets is made for AP shells increased from 45 to 60 degrees;
  • Guaranteed ricochet angle for AP shells increased from 60 to 67.5 degrees.




VIII Gustav Julius Maerker

:

  • Removed Defensive AA Fire and Hydroacoustic Search consumables
  • Added the Smoke Generator consumable;
  • Deck armor thickness increased from 19 to 25 mm;
  • The angle at which the check for ricochets is made for AP shells increased from 45 to 60 degrees;
  • Guaranteed ricochet angle for AP shells increased from 60 to 67.5 degrees.




IX Felix Schultz

:

  • Torpedo tubes reload time reduced from 120 to 90 s;
  • Removed the Hydroacoustic Search consumable;
  • Added the Smoke Generator consumable;
  • Deck armor thickness increased from 19 to 25 mm.




X Elbing

:

  • Removed the Hydroacoustic Search consumable;
  • Added the Smoke Generator consumable;

Hydroacoustic Search is most useful for destroyers when fighting other destroyers for caps. However, this is not a primary goal for the new German destroyers. Instead of Hydroacoustic search, we added a Smoke Generator, which will increase their survivability and allow them to effectively use one of their main features: their powerful main battery guns.



IX ZF-6

:

  • Main battery reload time reduced from 5 to 4 s.
  • Torpedo tubes reload time reduced from  120 to 90 s.



VII Hyūga

:

  • Main battery firing range reduced from 21.3 to 20.3 km;
  • Detectability range by sea increased from 15.84 to 16.84 km.



V Agincourt

:

  • AP shell parameters were changed:

    • Maximum damage reduced from 8,800 to 8,100;
    • Fuse arming time increased from 0.015 to 0.033 s;
    • Armor penetration reduced.
  • HE shell parameters were changed:

    • Chance of causing fire reduced from 32 to 31%
  • Ballistics were changed: now shells will spend more time in the air before hitting their target, and their trajectory became more arcing;
  • Increased accuracy of secondary battery: it’s now similar in parameters to the Massachusetts.



X Vampire II

:

  • Crawling Smoke Generator reload time reduced from 160 to 120 s;
  • Main battery reload time reduced from 3.5 to 2.3 s.
