ST: Attack Aircraft AP Rockets

Attack Aircraft AP Rockets

Soon there will be a closed test session for attack aircraft carrying armour-piercing rockets. Please note that if the results are positive at the end of the test, detailed information about the future usage of this concept will follow.

The mechanics of these new rockets are similar to that of armour-piercing shells, with the main difference being –just like with armour piercing bombs– that their armour penetration is not dependent on the distance they are fired from, but is instead a constant value.

As per the current concept, these rockets on Tier X aircraft carrier squadrons will be close to 203 mm armour-piercing shells in terms of efficiency against different classes. Upon hitting destroyers there will often be over-penetrations and the total damage will be lower than with standard rockets. The new rockets will be most effective against cruisers due to their ability to hit their citadel and deal significant damage. When attacking battleships, most damage will be dealt when targeting the case-mates - the penetration won't be high enough to pass through the citadel's armour belt.
