In Update 0.8.10, the Regia Marina’s cruisers are scheduled to exit Early Access and become freely available for all players to research. In this article, we'll cover the specific gameplay features of the new ships! Ship Branch Peculiarities ● Commander Skills and Upgrades ● Tactics Ship Branch Peculiarities Semi-armor-piercing shells Please note: the article indicates SAP shell ricochet angles applicable to the release of Update 0.8.10. In Update 0.8.9, shells fired by any Tier III–IX ships have a chance of ricocheting at angles of 65 degrees or higher. Starting from Tier II of the branch, the Regia Marina's researchable cruisers come armed with semi-armor-piercing (SAP) shells instead of HE shells. SAP shell features SAP shells may ricochet after hitting their target, but they have quite favorable ricochet angles—even better than those of the AP shells fired by British and American cruisers: Shells fired by https://glossary-wows-global.gcdn.co/icons/nation_flags/tiny/flag_Italy_206c77d5bf356559100ac3e95fdb7200b4fecf3e3ebb54d3ac18d332bd9cbdb7.pnghttps://glossary-wows-global.gcdn.co/icons/vehicle/types/Cruiser/normal_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2b682f13ef78688732d3016785c0649a424.png II Nino Bixio have a chance of ricocheting at angles of 80 degrees or higher, and are guaranteed to ricochet at angles of 85 degrees or higher.

If your hit doesn't ricochet, the armor penetration mechanics are similar to those of HE shells: the thickness of the armor at the point of impact is compared with the shell penetration value. The shell deals damage if the penetration value is higher than, or equal to the thickness of the armor. SAP shells can penetrate thicker armor and cause greater damage than HE shells. The exact penetration value depends on the shell’s caliber, and the damage is determined by the shell's caliber and speed. They can't overpenetrate targets. They can't start fires on enemy ships. SAP shells have no limit in terms of the damage they can cause to destroyers. Before choosing which particular shell type to use for your attack, consider your target. SAP shells are most efficient against destroyers, battleships, and cruisers, with the latter being positioned at an angle to your ship. AP shells perform best against any cruiser...Update 0.8.10: “Resolute and Rapid”Nov 12, 2019 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/81a772e11e3d4cdf532178fcc323db73be3a2dc0.jpg Please note that the servers will be temporarily unavailable due to the release of an update.

This provides an excellent opportunity to refresh your memory about the available in-game collections and why it’s worthwhile to complete them. Why Should I Complete Collections? ● How Can I Complete Collections? ● What Collections and Rewards are Available? ● The “Resolute and Rapid” Collection Why Should I Complete Collections? Collections are an excellent way to discover some interesting historical facts and obtain some desirable rewards along the way in the form of permanent camos, Commanders, and other valuable in-game items and abilities. Collections are designed to inform players about the history of the naval forces, significant operations, and famous historical figures. Sometimes “unhistorical” collections appear in the game as well. They may be dedicated to collaborations with other brands (for example, the collection inspired by anime series High School Fleet), or focus on the World of Warships game itself. Collections are made up of various elements: coats of arms of warships and combat units; items dedicated to renowned personalities; weapons, ships and aircraft; insignias; and much more. Each image is accompanied by a detailed description. For players’ convenience, elements are divided into thematic sections, and when each collection section is completed, an additional reward is unlocked. When all the elements of a collection or section are in place, a window informing the player about the associated reward is displayed. The collection is marked with an icon stating that it’s "Complete," which means you can return to it anytime to read the information about its elements. How Can I Complete Collections? Where can I find my collections? In the Profile section of the Port. You gain access to each collection after obtaining its first element. https://wowsp-wows-eu.wgcdn.co/dcont/fb/image/tmb/85d6fc2c-fa21-11e9-a746-38eaa735f4cc_1200x.jpg Please note: the Collections tab won't be displayed if you have no collection items. Where can I get collection items? In most cases, you'll find collection items in containers of the same name. Clicking on a collection item that was dropped from a container will transfer you to the screen of the corresponding collection. But there are exceptions—for example, the items from a collection dedicated to World of Warships Anniversary in 2017 were issued for special achievements earned in battle. What is a subscription? You can subscribe to some of the collections. This way you can choose which large collections you want to actively collect. You can obtain the first elements of these collections in special containers. By activating a subscription, you’ll be able to find the rest of the collectibles in the following containers: More Credits, More Signals and Camouflages, More Consumables, More Resources and Try Your Luck.

The Japanese command saw a chance to fulfill both these missions at once when their attention was caught by a small Midway Atoll. There was a hard-surface aerodrome on the atoll; if the Japanese captured it, they could establish a fine intermediate base on the Americans' doorstep, thus opening up a way to Pearl Harbor. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/526cd6fd12dd0f107a954a182f94170aa6f78308.jpg By the end of May, Admiral Yamamoto had thought over his plan several times, and ordered the start of an operation. Task forces were dispatched to sea one after another. The Japanese hoped for a sudden strike and superiority of forces. However, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet, Nimitz, had his own ace in the hole: his code breakers had decoded the Japanese code, and so could decipher a part of Japanese transmissions. Moreover, the Navy HQ were receiving a lot of reports on the movements of Yamamoto's forces, thus adding to the overall picture. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/f8e2d98dbf682f3c088b6d5983fdb0297bd9874f.jpg The 1st Air Fleet, headed by Admiral Nagumo, was the primary strike force in the upcoming operation. The squadron’s aircraft carriers—Akagi, Kaga, Hiryū and Sōryū—had already caused a lot of trouble for the allied forces. The Japanese forces stood up to the 16th and 17th task forces with three aircraft carriers, USS Enterprise, USS Hornet, and USS Yorktown, commanded by Admirals Spruance and Fletcher. The initial contact occurred on June 3, at 9:04 AM local time, when a patrol aircraft detected a Japanese transport squadron 500 miles southwest of Midway. Shortly after, another recon aircraft spotted the main Japanese forces 700 miles west of the island. At noon, 6 heavy B-17 bombers set off to intercept the main Japanese forces; around 4:40 PM the ...Dry Dock: ThundererNov 5, 2019 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/0a7a38e665f8371afce6cf824b72dd1acdd7f6fa.jpg World of Warships is the largest virtual shipyard in the world. The quality of the work done by our artists improves each year, and the requirements for the accuracy of the models they create grow respectively. Unfortunately, the in-game camera doesn't allow you to see all their details and beauty. In the Dry Dock show, you'll be able to see the refined beauty of our in-game models and duly appreciate the immaculate details of the various objects on their decks. Today, we're focusing on a special Premium Tier X ship from the branch of British battleships—Thunderer. The project of the Royal Navy battleship with reinforced firepower was designed taking into account the experience British shipbuilders gained during World War II. The ship is armed with 457 mm main battery guns that were developed in the early 1920s and were the most powerful British naval artillery systems.

She served in the navies of three countries: Germany, the U.S.A., and France. Now you have the chance to take command of her in World of Warships! History In early 1939, Germany adopted the so-called "Plan Z" that provided for building a large surface fleet. Under this plan, 68 destroyers were to be constructed, eight of which were ordered to be built as per the 1936A design. These were large ships with a full water displacement of almost 3,700 tons, and their main feature was artillery armament with a caliber of 150 mm—usually typical of cruisers. There were no other countries in the world where shipbuilders mounted guns of such a large caliber on destroyers. By the time World War II broke out, the execution of Plan Z had only just commenced. It was in September 1939 that Krupp's Germaniawerft shipyards in Kiel received the order for four destroyers, including Z-39. The new ships had to be built within the limitations of wartime budgets and utilize simplified technology, which is why the project was codenamed 1936A (Mob) meaning "mobilization." Construction progressed slowly. The shipbuilders experienced shortages of materials, the shipyards were busy repairing ships damaged in battle, and their qualified personnel were sent to naval bases in France and Norway. This resulted in Z-39’s construction schedule being set back by almost a year. The destroyer was launched in December 1941, but she was commissioned only in August 1943. By that time it had become apparent that project 1936A needed to be significantly elaborated. Her five 150 mm main guns turned out to be too heavy and adversely affected the ship's seagoing performance. Apart from that, her AA armament was too weak. Prior to the beginning of 1944, the ship hadn’t even put out to sea, and yet she underwent the necessary overhaul to fix these issues. In the process, she was stripped of her No.3 main battery gun, which allowed her AA armament to be further reinforced. In 1944, the ship took part in minelaying operations in the Baltic Sea while attached to the 4th destroyer flotilla, and shelled Soviet positions from time to time. In June 1944, off the coast of Paldiski, the ship was damaged during a Soviet air raid. After being transported to Kiel for repairs, the ship again suffered damage during an attack by British bombers. Due to a lack of the necessary personnel and materials for repairs, as well as a critical shortage of fuel, the ship was only able to return to active service in late March, 1945. During the final months of the war, Z-39 continued to provide fire support for the retreating German forces, and escorted transport ships carrying garrisons and refugees being evacuated from the Baltic coast. On May 10, 1945, the destroyer was decommissioned from the navy in Kiel. After that, the ship became a prize of war for the Alli...This is Halloween!Oct 31, 2019 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/a7a01ad2cb5f709446d03426b8cd256d91d41d32.jpg Welcome to a new game mode called Raid for the Filth!

A Portal to another dimension has opened up inside our game. Dare you step through the gate into another world to engage into a brutal fight against the forces of darkness and compete with other treasure hunters? Welcome to a new game mode called Raid for the Filth! In this article, we'll tell you about the rules of the new mode, features of the new event ships, and rewards available in the Armory. Overview ● Rewards ● New type of permanent camouflage ● Rules of the Mode ● Collecting Filth ● Event Ships Overview In the new mode, three teams of three players each fight against each other and a horde of dark forces controlled by AI. It’s possible to participate in the Raid for the Filth as part of a Division. Enter battle on the unique ships of a new temporary nation! Players will have three branches available: destroyers, cruisers, and battleships, with three ships in each branch. All the ships have their own special features and consumables. The main task is to collect the new resource—Filth—from special zones on the map and from the wreckage of sunk ships. Filth can be exchanged for rewards in the Armory. There are no winners or losers in the new mode: a battle’s success is defined by the amount of Filth collected by the entire team. Exit through the Portal at the center of the map when it opens to finish the battle. Bring a haul of Filth back to your world and add it to the team's spoils. If you perish or fail to escape through the Portal before the end of the battle, you'll score only a part of the Filth you collected for your team. Rewards A new tab—Halloween—has been added to the Armory. Exchange Filth for credits or one of three types of random bundles. All the rewards are visible in advance: the bundles’ contents and their amounts are displayed when viewing the currently available bundle. After each exchange, you’ll be able to see the contents of a new random bundle. Having collected all the bundles, you're guaranteed to have obtained all the available rewards.

A Clan is a community of players who want to play together. Having joined a Clan, you'll be entitled to regular economic bonuses, and you'll always have a team of players willing to fight in a Division, complete Operations, or take part in Clan Battles with you. You can either apply to join an existing Clan, or establish your own in the special Clan section in the Port. https://wowsp-wows-eu.wgcdn.co/dcont/fb/image/tmb/555c1600-f3ea-11e9-94df-38eaa735f4cc_1200x.jpg Under the Recommendations tab, you can indicate your personal playing preferences and preferred language for communication. The game will present you with a list of Clans that meet the specified criteria. Please note: to join a Clan and participate in Clan Battles, players need to unlock them in their Service Records. Doing so requires 200 battles to have been played in any accessible battle mode. Naval Base The Naval Base acts as the virtual territory of a Clan in the Port. Here, the Clan's leaders can build various structures that provide bonuses for all Clan members. The details of the bonus itself depend on the type and level of the structure. To build structures, Clans require a special resource—Oil. This can be earned by participating in various Clan activities or obtained from most types of in-game containers. https://wowsp-wows-eu.wgcdn.co/dcont/fb/image/tmb/55046ebe-f3ea-11e9-a98f-38eaa735f4cc_1200x.jpg Naval Base structures can provide the following bonuses: Discount on the cost of researchable ships—up to 15% Reduction of the cost of all ships' post-battle service—up to 15% Increase in the amount of XP gained per battle—up to 5% Increase in the amount of Commander XP gained per battle—up to 10% Increase in the amount of Free XP gained per battle—up to 25% Increase in the amount of Coal gained—up to 10% Increase in the amount of Steel gained—up to 10% Example: the Coal Port structure at Level 3 increases the amount of Coal the Clan obtains.

She took part in the battle for Norway and the landings in Normandy, defended British cities from the raids of German bombers, and hunted for submarines. After World War II, the ship remained in service in the Navy of the Polish People’s Republic until 1976, becoming a museum ship afterwards. Błyskawica is the world's oldest surviving destroyer. Now you have a chance to take command of her in World of Warships! History In the early 1930s, the small Polish Navy was in great need of new modern warships. In May 1933, Rear Admiral Jerzy Świrski, the Commander of the Polish Navy, announced a tender for the construction of two new destroyers. It was originally planned that French shipbuilders, who had already built two Wicher-class destroyers for the Polish Navy (based on the design of the Bourrasque-class ships), would do the job. However, negotiations with all the French shipyards failed. In early 1934, the order was offered to Swedish shipbuilders, but they rejected it as well. Finally, in 1935, the Poles chose the British project proposed by the famous J. Samuel White company. In September of the same year, the construction of two ships began at the shipyards in Cowes in the south of England. The ships received their names in accordance with the traditions for Polish Navy destroyers—in honor of weather phenomena: Grom (Polish for "thunder") and Błyskawica (Polish for "lightning"). The new class of destroyers turned out to be extremely powerful. Błyskawica, which entered service on November 25, 1937, was armed with seven 120 mm main battery guns (more than some World War I cruisers), two twin 40 mm AA guns, four twin machine gun mounts, two triple torpedo tubes, and a large reserve of depth charges. Most of the weapons were made in Sweden. On top of the aforementioned features, the new Polish ship reached speeds of up to 39 knots during her trials, beating other similarly armed destroyers of that period, such as the British Tribal-class destroyers. This was achieved at the price of reduced seakeeping characteristics, but they were still considered sufficient for the Baltic Sea. Just prior to the outbreak of World War II, Błyskawica, Grom, and an older French-built destroyer, Burza, were transferred from the Baltic to the U.K. Błyskawica joined the British Navy as an Allied ship, taking part in battles under the Polish flag. The destroyer debuted in combat just a week after the war began—on September 7, 1939. Błyskawica attacked a German submarine, but without success. However, the real action for the Polish sailors began in April and May 1940, when their ship took part in the Norwegian campaign. Błyskawica bombarded German positions, managed to shoot down two aircraft, and returned to the U.K. safe and sound. Grom wasn't so lucky—she was destroyed during a German bomber raid.

But don’t be afraid—World of Warships Commanders are out on the hunt for them in the name of glorious tradition. Last year's Operations and a new game mode are coming soon! This year, we are celebrating Halloween in two phases: The first takes place throughout Update 0.8.9. It will mark the return of the Saving Transylvania and Sunray in the Darkness Operations. The second takes place between October 31 and November 28. You'll be able to try out a new game mode—Raid for the Filth! From this article, you'll learn about what changes to expect in comparison with last year's Operations and new rewards. We'll provide you more details about the new mode in a separate dedicated article. Stay tuned for news on our website! Both Operations will be available as Operations of the Week. They can be completed in a Division at three different difficulty levels. Having completed the Operations, you'll be rewarded with expendable camos, signals, and Warships Premium Account time. This year, you'll be able to try your hand in the Operations in a Division, not only at the Normal and Hard difficulty settings, but also at Super Hard difficulty. The first completion of a Super Hard Operation with three stars or more will bring you Halloween 2018 Premium containers. These might include expendable camos, doubloons, Free XP, and a certain chance of dropping permanent Halloween camos from the previous years.

At the end of this journey, players will face the final boss—the evil and dangerous battleship Rasputin. https://wowsp-wows-eu.wgcdn.co/dcont/fb/image/tmb/0ec89344-ea62-11e9-bce8-38eaa735f4cc_1200x.jpg In order to play Operation Saving Transylvania, players will be provided with the following ships manned by Commanders with 19 skill points: Destroyer https://glossary-wows-st.gcdn.co/icons/nation_flags/tiny/flag_Events_7830c3ff5854e4cac1a8771efbba669139d3f0f243b8fd91bcf05901647f01e9.pnghttps://glossary-wows-st.gcdn.co/icons/vehicle/types/Destroyer/normal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836e98436c2163927b1d14379ed318fec6.png III Blade with Commander Abraham V.
