Naval characteristics, physics and damage model:

  • Ballistics in naval shells have been corrected - changes have been implemented to the dynamics and speed loss, in accordance with historical data. The effect of air resistance has been fixed. As a result, the flight time has been changed. For the vast majority of shells the flight time has been reduced. Trajectories have become more flat, including according changes to fall angles. Speed loss at distance has been reduced that has resulted in increased armour penetration capabilities of many rounds. Changes affect almost all shells in naval battles, their parameters may be specified further in future. Shells with the most noticeable armour penetration value changes are (first parameter - distance 1,000 meters; second - 15,000 meters):
    • SAP 130 mm/50 B-13: armour penetration increased by ~10-12 mm
    • AP and SAP 180 mm/57 B-1P, B-1K, 152mm/57 B-38: armour penetration increased by ~25-40 mm
    • SAP 127 mm/50 Mk.5: armour penetration increased by ~13-21 mm
    • SAP 152 mm/53 Mk.12: armour penetration increased by ~24-34 mm
    • AP 152 mm/47 Mk.16: armour penetration increased by ~16-29 mm
    • AP 203 mm/55 Mk.14: armour penetration increased by ~12-31 mm
    • AP 203 mm/55 Mk.12: armour penetration increased by~18-43 mm
    • AP 305 mm/45 Mk.5: armour penetration increased by ~16-40 mm
    • AP 305 mm/50 SK L/50: armour penetration increased by ~14-44 mm
    • SAP 152 mm/50 BL Mk.XXIII: armour penetration increased by ~1-15 mm
    • SAP 152 mm/45 BL Mk.XII:armour penetration increased by ~11-27 mm
    • SAP 203 mm/50 Mk.VIII: armour penetration increased by ~12-18 mm
    • AP 305 mm/45 Mk.X: armour penetration increased by ~19-46 mm
    • SAP 343 mm/45 Mk.VH: armour penetration increased by ~12-52 mm
    • AP 343mm/45 Mk.VH: armour penetration increased by ~23-95 mm
    • AP 203 mm/50 Ansaldo mod.1924: armour penetration increased by ~21-37 mm
    • AP 305 mm/46 Armstrong mod.1909: armour penetration increased by ~26-62 mm
    • SAP 305 mm/46 Armstrong mod.1909:armour penetration increased by ~48-121 mm
    • SAP 140-мм/50 3rd Year Type 14 cm: armour penetration increased by ~19-25 mm
    • AP 305-м/50 41st Year Type:armour penetration increased by ~14-34 mm
    • SAP 356-мм/45 41st Year Type: armour penetration increased by ~26-30 mm
    • Other AP and SAP shells have 1-10 mm armour penetration rise/loss.
      • List of documents on the basis of which the ballistics of the naval shells have been changed.
      • When specifying ballistics first of all we tried to bring the flight time of the shells and its speed at different distances to the data from the documents listed.On most shells it turned out quite accurately. Absolute accuracy is currently impossible to achieve for objective reasons and limitations in the game engine. In future we plan to bring external ballistics to a more accurate simulation. Currently you can observe differences in the angles of incidence with shells for historical ones. This is also due to the limitations of the engine which we will eliminate during development. We also remind you that penetration data from the documents and in-game penetration may differ because in-game penetration is calculated uniformly according to a single formula for all shells and the documentary data may have been obtained in different ways: theoretical and practical. However the flight time and speed on the trajectory are now much closer to historical (and for many shells almost completely coincide) than they were before.
  • 283mm/54.5 SK C/34 — Shell velocity dynamics that caused armour penetration to be lowered and flight time to be increased has been fixed.
  • One coefficient of the armour penetration on the semi-AP rounds calculation has been fixed, resulting in a slight armour piercing value rise.
  • Admiral Graf Spee - ship's armour has been corrected: the thickness on extremities and decks. The deck traverse has been separated into two plates of different thicknesses.
  • Parizhskaya Kommuna - the dynamics of sinking and the behavior of the ship when flooding has been fixed. The ship no longer capsizes when losing buoyancy up to 60-80%
  • USS Raleigh, USS Trenton - a model of fuel tanks has been added in the area of the ammunition room of the aft turrets of the main battery.
  • USS Pensacola - the location of the central artillery post and the location of the aft ammunition stowages for secondary and anti-aircraft artillery have been changed.
  • HMS Liverpool, HMS Southampton - armour has been added under the barbettes of the main caliber guns.
  • USS Northampton - elevators have been added for the secondary guns.
  • M-17 - the internal geometry of the bow section of the ship has been fixed for the correct calculation of the received damage.

Naval Visual models and visual parts:

  • MPK pr.12412 - the mounted rescue boat has been removed during a battle session.
  • HMS Blackpool - incorrect display of torpedoes inside of the torpedo tubes has been fixed.
  • USS Raleigh - incorrect display of the elevator of the aft tower of the main battery in the x-ray has been fixed.
  • USS Pensacola - the shape and dimensions of the fuel tanks have been changed in accordance with the blueprints.

Economy and research

  • F-84F and Vautour IIA IDF/AF(Premium French aircraft) have been withdrawn from purchase. In future the Vautour IIA will appear as a premium vehicle in Israel's aircraft tree. Read details in the Developers Diary.
  • F6F-5N (France) — Moved to a group with the F6F-5.
  • Seafire F.Mk.XVII and Seafire FR.47 — Have been moved into one group.
  • Italian light cruisers of rank IV have been moved to the right branch of the research tree.

    • Purchase cost has been reduced: 610.000 → 310.000 SL
    • Crew training cost has been reduced 180.000 → 90.000 SL

Customization

  • A bug has been fixed where the "Fire Arrows" achievement might only be completed using unguided rockets.
  • "Emblem of the 61st Mechanised Battalion, South West Africa" decal has been added for the South African vehicles. The decal can be unlocked only with SA vehicles.
  • R3 T106 FA, R3 T20 FA-HS — tricolor camo has been added available for Golden Eagles.
  • New "Road Signs" decorations have been added and are available for purchase with GE.
  • The logic of checking the player's vehicles for compliance with the condition in a task has been changed for most game tasks about 'damage, destruction and assist in the destruction of the enemy' that are used for obtaining camouflages, stickers, decorations, medals, titles, achievements etc. Now the vehicle that has been used for damage or destroying the enemy will be checked and not the one that the player was controlling at the moment of the event (damage, destruction and assist). For example earned on the aircraft achievements from air strikes in ground AB will be counted in the air vehicles even if at the moment the player is already in the tank, but destroys the enemy with an aircraft bomb. Gradually this logic will be extended to the rest of such tasks.

Interface

  • In battle in the action bar's selection window, each point now has a fixed location. If some actions are missing on the vehicle, then instead of them there will be empty spaces in this menu.
  • A new "Allow empty teams" point has been added In the options menu for creating custom battles that will allow you to start and continue missions without active players and bots in any of the teams.
  • "Bots rank" has been removed from the options menu when creating custom battles. Now vehicles for any chosen bots are determined by the minimum allowed BR and the game session BR (used to determine whether to add long-range airfields. Helipads and other objects of high rank battles) and determined by the maximum allowed BR as it happens in random battles.
  • SAM info cards now contains data on G-tolerance and seeker parameters.

Game mechanics

  • Scout aircraft in naval battles. The ability to launch a scout aircraft from the ship's catapult (if it has one) has been added to naval battles. It is necessary to open and install the appropriate modification beforehand. After the start of the battle, the launch of the aircraft becomes available after a specific time. To launch, activate the catapult (default "U"), point it outboard and launch the aircraft (default "U"). During flight, you can switch between the aircraft and the ship. As long as the player controls the aircraft the ship will remain on the course it was on at the time of launch. The ship will fire in accordance with the set shooter AI mode. If the ship is destroyed while controlling the aircraft the flight will end after a while. In addition to aerial fighting, scouting aircraft can:
    • Capture points
    • Drop bombs
    • Deploy a smoke screen at altitudes of up to 50m
    • Perform long-range scouting
