WOWS Devs - Japanese Cruiser Zao and Destroyers Firing 100 mm HE Shells Balance Changes

Balance Changes. Japanese Cruiser Zao and Destroyers Firing 100m HE Shells.

For the Japanese HE shells of 100 mm caliber (used on Akizuki, Kitakaze, Harugumo and secondaries of the Zao and Hakuryu), the armor penetration parameter was increased from 17 mm to 25 mm. This change will allow the HE shells to penetrate the armor of all destroyers, except for Khabarovsk.

Taking those changes into account, the following parameters change in the Akizuki:
  • Surface Detectability Range increased from 7.56 to 7.76 km;
  • Surface Detectability Range after shooting from smoke increased from 2.39 to 2.48 km;
  • The rudder shift time for the Hull (B) is increased from 4.8 to 5.8 s;
  • The rudder time for the Hull (A) is increased from 6.5 to 7.8 s.
Japanese destroyer Kitakaze:
  • Maximum Speed was increased from 33 knot to 36 knot to increase the level of comfort of the game on the ship.

Stats are subject to change during the test. Please note that stats provided are never final until published as so, on World of Warships Regional Websites.
