    That's certainly an interesting way to make an otherwise similar caliber gun to many we already have different. If it its fit neutral on Kongou class.....wow the Kai version of this gun is going to be a real coup for them.


    In reality, the RN rockets worked somewhat differently from the IJN ones and were much less practical. There's very little info on how the IJN ones performed, but we can make some educated guesses based on how similar to Sanshikidan they were. Which is to say, not great. But better than the RN ones at least, which were more like......air mines.

    To elaborate a bit: most anti-air systems work by trying to send a ton of shrapnel in the path of an incoming aircraft. The 7 inch Unrotated Projectile works by sending upwards a mine, attached to three parachutes and moored to the ship (like the balloon barrages). The idea was that any attacking bomber would hit the mooring line and draw the mine towards itself. Thing is, as these ware floating to the wind, any wind change could blow said mine back to the launching ship, with predictable results (#HoistByItsOwnPetard). Is it worth mentioning that this idea is the brainchild of Sir Winston Churchill?

    yeah, they're not even trying to surprise us with designs anymore, are they?




    Wo-san... why won't you come to my base?

    You don't get it do you? It's a SHIP that launches Ship GIRLS! It's going to cause a rift in the space/awesome continuum!!

    Seems there is another new AACI, this time a more practical combination of FCR gun+ pom pom gun on Warspite.


    On another note, guess they are all British in this game.

    So more things to report concerning the new AACI:



    So it seems that the combination of FCR gun+pompom gun can also trigger the same AACI as the combination of Up rocket+pompom gun (API_32), and ships that could trigger such an AACI include all British ships and the Kongou class. (Thanks @Leyana for providing the screenshot) The reasoning seems to be that the FCR gun has a built in Up rocket, as shown in the pic of this gun.



    Test shows that the API_32 AACI has the bonus of (+3, x1.2). A pretty meh AACI all things considered, especially when the generic AACI that every one can trigger has a bonus of (+4, x1.5). You should avoid triggering this AACI in most cases.

    Mk I fit test on Warspite:



    According to this test, Mk I has a positive fit on Warspite (somewhere around +5). While it certainly isn't as big a bonus as her own gun, Mk I has a huge fp advantage.
