Main Battery guns 203 mm of Japanese cruisers (Furutaka, Aoba, Myoko, Mogami, Ibuki, Atago, ARP Myoko, ARP Ashigara, ARP Haguro, Southern Dragon, Eastern Dragon, ARP Nachi, ARP Takao) receive an increase in the accuracy, similar to the accuracy of the cruiser Zao. The change highlights one of the main features of these ships - good volley damage at a relatively low rate of fire.
To improve combat effectiveness and bring them in line with classmates, Japanese cruisers receive the following improvements:
Japanese cruisers Myoko, ARP Myoko, ARP Ashigara, ARP Haguro, Southern Dragon, Eastern Dragon, ARP Nachi: - Main Battery rotation speed has been increased from 4 to 5 g/s.
Japanese cruiser Ibuki: - Reload Time decreased from 15 to 13.7 s.
Japanese destroyers Hatsuharu, Fubuki, Shiratsuyu, Akatsuki, Kagero, Yugumo, Shimakaze, Shinonome, Asashio, Asashio B, HSF Harekaze: - Increased damage from HE shells from 1800 to 2150; - Increased Chance of Fire from 7 to 9%.
Increasing the damage of the shells will allow the Japanese destroyers to more effectively resist classmates. With higher damage volleys and good Detectability Range, Japanese destroyers will be stronger in confrontations with ships with depleted Hit Points, even if they possess a superior rate of fire of their MBs.
