    Yessss, my gamble to migrate to Buin pays dividends at last ,

    got in top 100 with average effort and it seems that I stayed there even when I lost connection on the last day of ranking.

    Sayonara Hashi,,, I shan't miss fighting tooth and nail just to be under top 1000







    3 missing ships left:
    Gotland, Hamanami and Taihou.

    Ranking reward:

    T1-5

    5inch Single Gun Mount Mk.30+ GFCS MK.37 x2
    GFCS Mk.37
    Skilled SONAR Personnel + Late Model Bow Torpedo Mount (6 Tubes)

    T6-20


    5inch Single Gun Mount Mk.30+ GFCS MK.37
    GFCS Mk.37
    Skilled SONAR Personnel + Late Model Bow Torpedo Mount (6 Tubes)

    T21-100

    5inch Single Gun Mount Mk.30+ GFCS MK.37
    GFCS Mk.37
    Late Model Bow Torpedo Mount (6 Tubes)

    T101-500

    5inch Single Gun Mount Mk.30+ GFCS MK.37
    Late Model Bow Torpedo Mount (6 Tubes)

    Stat of the new equpment:





    Bonus of the Mk.30+GFCS MK.37:


    Samuel B. Roberts: +2 fp, +1 evasion, +1 AA
    Any other DD: +1 fp

    Bonus of GFCS MK.37

    American ship: +1fp, +1 aa, +1 evasion



    Overall, both are equipment with good stat, especially for the radar, which have much higher stat than any existing small AA radar. However, they have a glaring weakness of providing med range, which is quite detrimental for a DD.

    Looks good. *sigh* The one time I've ranked was July and I got a Bofors 15.2cm Twin Gun Mount Model 1930 ★+2 and a Type 97 Torpedo Bomber (931 Air Group) . Much rather have these rewards or June's rewards. I guess that's how it goes with ranking.


    Thanks to Arkayda for the signature.

    Medium range seems like an interesting way to "balance" the guns. Indirectly also makes certain equipment that modify range for cruisers and carriers more useful I guess? The medium range could be better in some situations, such as versus imps or subs. In most cases though, all else being equal it would be detrimental indeed. Interesting that the radar alone also gives medium range.

    And a bonus for American ships on top of those stats too. Heh, and I thought according to a certain other franchise's fans, KC was biased against the Allies.

    They seem to be following what I previously theorized. I wouldn't expect Fletcher class once in-game to have best-in-class FP and AA (or, for that matter, HP, armor & especially torp), instead it would be only when they are carrying this equipment. Other non-American DDs would be able to get much the same advantages by transplanting the equip, albeit without any bonus reserved for American ships. And the range issue would be one reason you wouldn't necessarily use these all the time over say duckie guns. Seems fair.

    On another note, yukikaze fairy seems to hint that the first Fletcher class in-game might be USS Johnston, which according to one of Johnston's crew, Yukikaze's crew/captain allegedly saluted as they passed her sinking. In any case, she was in Gambier Bay's group alongside Sam as well, so it makes sense to bring them all together.

    One more thing. This is the first gun with LOS, and according to this test, the modifer for LOS on this gun is around x0.6.

    Hey, what? That's totally great! I've been waiting for this for the longest time! Now I can sparkle DDs in 1-1 with escort meatshields and not accidentally lose MVP to them!

    Also works fine in a torpedo squadron where everyone has short range anyway (except the CL, which doesn't necessarily have a better performance since it can't arty spot). Great for helping with grinding a specific character, like any one specific DD in 7-1, or Kaiboukan in 1-5. And unlike other range-modifying equipments, it actually has OP stats, all the better! Yes, I do love my range-modifying equipments.

    Looking forward to getting multiples of this somehow and slap it on the same DD for twice the fun.

    Ok, er... sorry for my ignorance, but I don't understand, what does 'modifier for LoS' mean? Apart from the base stat being 3?

    Didn't seaplane have a x2, radar have a x1 and other LoS have a square root for effective LoS calculation?

    Those values are for the old formulas, but yes, those "things". :d

    In addition to 1-1 sparkling, the medium range on DD is also very useful to me in PvP when I am using a light fleet against easy opponents. Unfortunately I did not get the radar. :/

    It's the modifier of LOS on each type of equipment for the F33 formula. Other equipment with 0.6 modifier includes radar, fighter, DB, searchlight, while things like scout plane and TB provides more actual LOS per LOS stat.
