    So HMS Nelson or HMS Rodney for the event. Would be interesting to see Bismarck's reaction if it's Rodney.

    I was hoping to get the new DD type A guns to save on screws. Oh well.




    I wonder if this new tea rockets have the same effect as 12cm kai or they are just normal AA guns.

    If both are part of the ship's equipment, it should be Nelson, as Rodney didn't have UP rockets installed.

    UP projectors were installed on board Barham, Nelson, King George V, Prince of Wales and Hood. It seems always to have been considered a stop-gap, so that installations stopped in January 1941 as pom-poms became more widely available. The programme was abandoned before it could be completed, possibly due to the fire German shells touched off in ready-use rocket stowage on board Hood
    Also, Nelson served in the Indian Ocean.

    Im pretty sure, no matter what they say, it wasn't replaced because it was a stop-gap design or because of the ammunition cook-off on Hood, but quickly removed in favor of pom-poms because the method of operation of these rockets was ludicrously impractical.

    And yes should be Nelson.

    That's for sure. But it's easier to stop a German battleship than bureaucracy, and furthermore military procurement plans.

    Looks like all BIG 7 ships will have snail-like horns headwear.

    So, are these Big Snailven?

    OK, so about the special bonus and effect of these guns:

    1. 16inch Mk I varient

    Kongou class: +1 fp, +1 armor, -3 evasion
    Warspite: +2 fp, +1 armor, -2 evasion

    So all in all, very decent gun for support use. We use these BB for support a lot anyway, and it is nice to see gun tailored for that purpose. As far as combat goes, we still need to wait for the fit test. Would be huge though if this gun actually fits on Kongou class.


    2. Up rocket launcher

    This rocket launcher can trigger a special AACI on any existing British ship when paired with a pompom gun. No anti-air barrage effect has been discovered so far. The equipment also gives +2 AA, +1 evasion and +1 armor on any existing British ship.


    Noted that the reward page mentioned that these equipment is subject to update when they are officially introduced.

    Paired with pompom. When you still need to put an AA gun on main slots when you have extension, or is this hint of expansion 2 in the future lol.
