479873254656454656

Type 98 can be used for daytime spotting
It doesn't work if you have air denial during day time
Its stats are not very good because it is an outdated plane
But it can enable night time spotting

@hudang (http://kancolle.himeuta.net/forums/member.php?u=45)

Aye, the comments I'm reading says,

The dev's description speaks of the CL who attempted to commence night combat after the destruction of Nagumo Carrier Fleet during Midway.



山本の命令により、近藤信竹中将は第七戦隊(熊野、鈴谷、三隈、最上)にミッドウェー島へ向かうよう命じ、 同時に 南雲機動部隊と策応して米軍機動部隊に夜戦を挑む方針を示した。連合艦隊は、ミッドウェー基地の米軍航空兵 力が使用可能かどうか、南雲部隊に尋ねている。 「長良」では空母「飛龍」が米空母2隻を撃破したという連絡が入り(ヨークタウンを2度攻撃したことを誤認 )、草鹿参謀長は希望を抱いた。夜戦を企図しつ つ北上中の午後2時5分(17:05)、「飛龍」の被弾と炎上により、米軍機動部隊とミッドウェー基地航空 隊制空権下での水上戦闘は困難と南雲は判断、草 鹿によれば「万事休す」であった。そこで一旦西方に反転し、あらためて夜襲を企図した。草鹿参謀長は「レー ダーもなく、駆逐艦も少なく、望みのない夜戦に 一縷の望みをかけて、当てもなくただ走りまわっていた」と回想している。宇垣は戦艦や重巡洋艦から水上偵察 機を発進させて索敵を行わない南雲司令部を「消 極的、退廃的」と批判しているが、空母4隻を目前で失ったからには当然の反応だろうと理解も示している。近 藤中将の第二艦隊は軽空母「瑞鳳」を有してお り、米艦隊に積極的に戦闘を挑む方針を示した。炎上日本空母を護衛していた第四駆逐隊司令有賀幸作大佐(後 、戦艦大和艦長)に至っては「敵機動部隊接近す れば刺し違えよ」と配下駆逐艦に下令した




At the time, the only fleet who received such an order was Nagumo's fleet and the only CL presented during that time was Nagara.
Nagara became the new flagship of Nagumo after he abandoned the burning Akagi. He considered pursuing the Americans at night but the attack was called out because the Americans were retreating which would have not allowed them to close the gap in time.

artificial
06-09-2014, 03:57 AM
it's going to be Sendai because:

1. she was under Admiral Yamamoto's Main Body
2. if I'm not mistaken, 3 BBs were under Yamamoto, two of which were Nagato and Mutsu. Source. (http://www.combinedfleet.com/sendai_t.htm)
3. to quote Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_cruiser_Sendai), "The Main Body remained 600 nmi (1,110 km) behind Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo's First Carrier Striking Force and thus did not engage American forces."
5. gonna quote Wikipedia again (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamamoto_Isoroku), "With his air power destroyed and his forces not yet concentrated for a fleet battle, Yamamoto attempted to maneuver his remaining forces, still strong on paper, to trap the American forces. He was unable to do so because his initial dispositions had placed his surface combatants too far from Midway, and because Admiral Raymond Spruance prudently withdrew to the east in a position to further defend Midway Island, believing (based on a mistaken submarine report) the Japanese still intended to invade. Not knowing several battleships, including the powerful Yamato, were on the Japanese order of battle, he did not comprehend the severe risk of a night surface battle, in which his carriers and cruisers would be at a disadvantage. However, his move to the east did avoid the possibility of such a battle taking place. Correctly perceiving he had lost and could not bring surface forces into action, Yamamoto aborted the invasion of Midway and withdrew. The defeat marked the high tide of Japanese expansion."
6. To reinforce the point of Sendai pulling back before she could even do anything, while Nagara did engage enemy ships, I'll quote Wikipedia for the 3rd time (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Midway#American_counterattack):

"Finally, fearing a possible night encounter with Japanese surface forces and believing Yamamoto still intended to invade, Spruance changed course and withdrew to the east, turning back west towards the enemy at midnight. For his part, Yamamoto initially decided to continue the engagement and sent his remaining surface forces searching eastward for the American carriers. Simultaneously, he detached a cruiser raiding force to bombard the island. The Japanese surface forces failed to make contact with the Americans due to Spruance's decision to briefly withdraw eastward, and Yamamoto ordered a general withdrawal to the west.

Spruance failed to regain contact with Yamamoto's forces on 5 June despite extensive searches. Towards the end of the day he launched a search-and-destroy mission to seek out any remnants of Nagumo's carrier force. This late afternoon strike narrowly missed detecting Yamamoto's main body, and failed to score hits on a straggling Japanese destroyer. The strike planes returned to the carriers after nightfall, prompting Spruance to order Enterprise and Hornet to turn on their lights to aid the landings."
7. I don't even see "Nagara", "night battle", and "Midway" go together in this page. (http://www.combinedfleet.com/nagara_t.htm)

by these points above, the "remaining surface fleet" should be Yamamoto's force, and therefore, the CL to get a 2nd remodel in the next update will be Sendai.

Finally, Sendai Kai Ni will soon be here. And Ayanami Kai Ni will hopefully turn out good. Should probably prep for it and take her to 60 (just in case and only 25 levels away).

Tbh though, I'm more excited for Ayanami Kai Ni. I've had her for a long while since I like her design and voice, and I certainly hope it stays that way with the new art and lines. Also will give me a reason to deploy her along with the rest of the super-destroyers.

I think I'm going into withdrawal mode already. I want to keep running exp 2, I want to see that bucket count jumping!


Last night I tried grinding 2-2 for bauxite, got about 600 before I stopped. The gain is decent, about 20 bauxite per sortie but as I was running 3 subs and have only 2 repair slots, I had to wait a good amount of time for the subs to get finished repairing (the double line and diamond, also occasional line abreast formations on that map absolutely rekt any and all of my subs :haruna_sad:).
I figured that people with 4 repair slots might have a better time farming 2-2 in this fashion. Can anyone confirm?

Updates
Maintenance set to finish at 1700 JST on schedule

1) CL Sendai Kai2 implemented. She will also come with special equipment that will be useful in night battles.
2) CL Sendai has new voices. Sendai Kai and K2 have new resupply, idle, and wedding (kari) voices. Sendai Kai2 will have new HQ and modernization/refit voices.
3) Ayanami Kai2 implemented. She will have new resupply, idle, wedding (kari), and hourly notifications.
4) Increased size of equipment encyclopedia. Currently 100, will be increased to 150.
5) New equipment 1: Flares/Star Shells - Kanmusu equipped with flares has a chance to launch them during night battle. Fleets with flares in effect will have increased accuracy and cutin chance, enemies will have reduced cutin chances.
6) Star Shells give bonuses to your whole fleet. Multiple ships equipped with star shells give a higher chance of its effect. It does not have the disadvantage of the searchlight where you get targetted more often. Effects stack with the searchlight.
7) New equipment 2: Type 98 Floatplane. An experienced night recon crew pilots this plane, and under certain conditions will attempt a night observation. If successful, this will assist in increased damage and critical chance during night battle.
8) The Type 98 Floatplane can be used for daytime recon and observation. If air superiority is lost, then it cannot be used. The plane is an obsolete type and does not have very high stats, but night observation can subtly increase the strength of your fleet in night battle.
9) UI Updates: Made it easier to check the 'all' checkbox on the resupply screen. Fixed the issue where it was sometimes difficult to click the 'heart lock' when the wedding ring is present after wedding (kari)
10) Submarine equipment, 53cm 8 tube torpedo can now be used to trigger cutin attacks
11) Bugfixes: Fixed 12.7cm HA gun (late) being able to attack submarines. Fixed bugs in the furniture shop where certain actions would cause incorrect behavior, Fixed bugs in the furniture rearrange screen when changing pages.
12) Bismarck Zwei stat update: Bismarck Zwei will receive buffs in max firepower, max AA, starting and max evasion, starting and max recon, and max Luck

Maintenance set to finish at 16:30 JST

I was hoping Sendai's stats would be higher. :/ She's definitely weaker than Jintsuu (in comparison, Jintsuu is a beast), but she looks sooo awesome.

On the other hand Ayanami's stats ended up being really high, almost (but not quite) reaching Yuudachi levels. Does have more luck than her though, that could be a big deal.

Dang, I wasn't the biggest fan of Ayanami's old art, but her new art is rather impressive. Pretty impressive stats rivaling Yuudachi makes her kinda tempting, but at the same time, I don't want to waste the resources, and I feel like I've got enough decent destroyers. Depending on what flare and that night plane do, I might have to level up Sendai. (If the night plane sucks though, I'd rather level Ayanami.)

The night plane shouldn't be too awful in my opinion, it's a balanced trade-off: day-time recon for better night-time performance

I'm sure it'll be useful in the upcoming event since the usual loadout for maps like these include a Type 0 Recon/Type 0 Observer plane anyway

I'm just secretly hoping that it's not useful, so that I don't have to level up Sendai just for her equipment. (Never plan on using her, really.)

I'm glad to see they're buffing Bismarck, now there might very well be a real reason that makes her worthy of being LSC material. Maybe it's just me, but she always was more or less on par with the Kongou-class.
