Introduction

If your fleet has not defeated the enemy in day combat, you will get the chance to continue the fight in a night battle (夜戦). To engage in night battle, select the "Engage in Night Battle" (夜戦突入) option; to proceed without night battle, select the "Cancel Pursuit" (追撃せず) option.

The exception to this rule are night battle nodes and night/day battle nodes that begin at night.

Overview

  • Firing order during night battle is based on the position in the fleet.
    • Turns can be skipped if a ship is sunk or disabled before they can take their turn.
    • Sunk ships are not counted towards the turn order.
  • Heavily damaged (大破) ships are unable to participate.
    • Ships revived by a Repair Goddess are able to participate even if they started the night battle heavily damaged. They will be unable to participate again if heavily damaged before their turn.
  • It is unaffected by engagement.
  • Ships with a base firepower and torpedo stat of 0 will be unable to participate in night battle.
  • The main fleet of a Combined Fleet is unable to participate in night battle.

Important Notes

  • Ammo usage is increased by 50%.
  • All ASW attacks will deal chip damage at night. This makes submarines impossible to sink.
    • The exception is battles that begin at night or combined fleet night battles.
  • Attack power is calculated using firepower and torpedo stats. Please see damage calculations for more details.
    • When fighting Abyssal installations, the torpedo stat is ignored.
  • The attack power cap is raised to 300 at night.

Special Effects

  • All heavy cruisers gain +5Evasion
  • Heavy cruisers equipped with IJN 20.3cm guns will gain an accuracy and evasion bonus. Please see Gun Fit Bonuses for more details.
  • Star Shells increases accuracy by +5 and cut-in chance by +4 while decreasing enemy cut-in chance by 5 when triggered.
  • Searchlights increases accuracy by +7 and cut-in chance by 7 and decrease enemy cut in chance by -10 if triggered.
    • Searchlights will **increase the chance that the ship equipped with it will be targeted by +14% (+25% for Type 96 150cm Searchlight).
  • Destroyers equipped with Skilled Lookouts and a RADAR will gain bonus evasion. The exact amount is unknown.

Night Contact

When there is a ship equipped with a Type 98 Recon Seaplane (Night Scout), there is a chance of triggering Night Contact if certain conditions are fulfilled.

Trigger Requirements

  • Your fleet must have obtained either Air Denial (AD), Air Superiority (AS) or Air Supremacy (AS+) in the fighter combat phase. Please see fighter combat for more details.
    • In PvP, this extends to Air Parity (AP).
    • For battles that begin at night, this requirement is waived.
  • The plane must be equipped in a slot bigger than 0.
  • In a Combined Fleet, it must be equipped on a ship in the escort fleet.

Trigger Rate

[math]\text{Trigger %} = \left[ \sqrt{3 \times \text{Level}} \right] \times 4[/math]

  • If there is more than one night scout equipped, the game will check against them all.
  • Fleet LOS does not affect the trigger rate.
  • The state of air control does not affect the trigger rate.

Effects When night contact triggers, your fleet will gain several bonuses during night battle.

  • +10% accuracy
  • +5 firepower
  • Critical rate increase.
    • The exact increase is not known.

Night Battle Special Attacks

When equipped with specific equipment setups, ships are able to perform powerful special attacks at night when certain conditions are fulfilled. The attack bonus from these modifiers are all pre-cap. For details on how that affects damage, please see Damage Calculations.

Trigger Requirements

  • The ship must not be heavily damaged (大破).
  • For ASW capable ships, the target must not be a submarine.
  • The ship must be equipped with the appropriate equipment setup. See below.

Attack Types

The following are the minimum equipment requirements to trigger a night battle special attack.

  3. Only applies to the Late Model Bow Torpedo Mount (6 Tubes) and Skilled SONAR Personnel + Late Model Bow Torpedo Mount (6 Tubes).
  4. As above.

Important Notes

  • If the ship fulfills the equipment requirements for more than one special attack, the one listed higher on the table takes priority.
    • The exception are the destroyer exclusive cut-ins. If the higher priority cut-in fails, the game will check the next valid cut in.
  • Having multiple 12.7cm Twin Mount Type-D Kai 2 will increase the Special Destroyer Mixed Cut-in by 1.125x. This is multiplicative with the original multiplier.
  • If a night battle special attack fails to penetrate the enemy's armour or is evaded, chip damage will be dealt.
  • Midget submarines are not counted as torpedoes.
    • Their torpedo stat still counts towards the damage calculation.
  • You can add more than the minimum number of equipment as long as you do not fulfill another attack requirement.
    • Auxiliary equipment like AP Shells, seaplanes, RADARs and anti-air guns are recommended.
  • Special attacks that hit twice will roll independently to determine hit, critical chance and armour penetration.
    • This figure is displayed as a sum for cut-ins.
    • This figure is displayed separately for double attacks.

Trigger Rate

Double Attacks

The cut in rate for double attacks is extremely high. Testing places the value at around 99%.

Cut-Ins

[math]\text{CI %} = \left[ \dfrac{\text{Param}_\text{CI}}{\text{Const}_\text{Atk}} \right] \times 100[/math]

Where:

  • If luck is less than 50; [math]\text{Param}_\text{CI} = \left[ 15 + \text{Luck} + 0.75 \times \sqrt{\text{Level}} \right] + \text{Mod}_\text{flag} + \text{Mod}_\text{Damage} + \text{Mod}_\text{Equip}[/math]
  • If luck is 50 or greater; [math]\text{Param}_\text{CI} = \left[ 65 + \sqrt{ \left( \text{Luck} - 50 \right) } + 0.8 \times \sqrt{\text{Level}} \right] + \text{Mod}_\text{flag} + \text{Mod}_\text{Damage} + \text{Mod}_\text{Equip}[/math]
  • [math]\text{Const}_\text{Atk}[/math] is the constant based on the attack being performed.
    • Gun = [math]140[/math]
    • Mixed Gun = [math]130[/math]
    • Destroyer Mixed = [math]130[/math]
    • Torpedo = [math]122[/math]
    • Mixed = [math]115[/math]
  • [math]\text{Luck}[/math] is the Luck stat of the ship.
  • [math]\text{Level}[/math] is the level of the ship.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{flag}[/math] is the flagship modifier of [math]15[/math] if applicable. It is [math]0[/math] otherwise.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{Damage}[/math] is the damage state modifier of [math]18[/math] if moderately damaged (中破). It is [math]0[/math] otherwise.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{Equip}[/math] are the various night battle equipment modifiers. See below for details.
Equipment Modifiers
Equipment Name Friendly Bonus Enemy Penalty Notes
Star Shell +4 -10 Can exceed the luck cap.
Searchlight +7 -5 Can exceed the luck cap.
Skilled Lookouts +5 - Can exceed the luck cap. Only applies to the ship it is equipped on.

Important Notes

  • There are severely diminishing returns in trigger rate beyond 51 luck.
    • It is not recommended to increase Luck beyond 51.
  • The lower the attack constant, the higher the chance of a particular special attack triggering.
  • The formula above is obtained from information datamined from the KanColle Kai Vita game.
  • Marriage does not directly affect cut-in chances.
    • The luck bonus and increase in levels do.
  • The flagship, damage state and equipment modifiers do not translate to a direct increase of the trigger rate. They would all be adjusted by the attack type constant.

Equipment Setups

Below are recommended equipment setups for night battle special attacks. If an attack type is not listed, it means that it is subpar and not worth considering. The order of the equipment is for illustrative purposes only. It does not matter what order the equipment are in.

Battleships

Large Caliber Main GunLarge Caliber Main GunSeaplane Template:WildCard Double Attack This is the standard setup for all battleships. It maintains an artillery spotting attack and provides consistency of a night battle double attack. The wild card is usually a shell of some sort depending on the enemies you are facing. It must not be a torpedo, secondary gun or main gun.
Heavy Cruisers

Intermediate Caliber Main GunIntermediate Caliber Main GunSeaplane Template:WildCard Double Attack This is the standard setup for heavy cruisers. It allows them to double attack at daytime and nighttime. The wild card can be a radar, night battle equipment or even a Type 3 shell for anti-installation work. The wild card should not be a torpedo because it will interfere with night battle special attacks.
Intermediate Caliber Main GunAuxiliary GunAuxiliary GunTemplate:WildCard Double Attack This setup is for maximising firepower in day and night battle. Normally, this setup is used when you expect to be fighting under Air Parity (AP) or worse which disables artillery spotting. The wild card can be anything but another main gun or torpedo.

Torpedo-based WeaponTorpedo-based WeaponIntermediate Caliber Main GunTemplate:WildCard Torpedo Cut-In This is an alternate heavy cruiser torpedo cut-in setup for high-powered heavy cruisers like Myoukou Kai Ni. Because they easily hit the night battle attack power cap, they can take a main gun to increase their effectiveness in daytime. Ideally that gun would be an IJN 20.3cm for the evasion bonus. The wild card can be anything but is typically night battle equipment to boost cut-in rates.
Light Cruisers

Carrier Night Attacks

Normally carriers cannot attack at night unless certain conditions are fulfilled. There are three different kinds of carrier night attacks; carrier night shelling, Swordfish night attacks and carrier night cut-ins. The focus of this section will be mostly on carrier night cut-ins because they are the most varied. The former two types of carrier night attacks are simple and straightforward.

This is not to be confused with Carrier Cut-In Attacks which are for daytime shelling.

Trigger Requirements

1. Carrier Night Shelling

  • Graf Zeppelin, Taiyou Kai Ni, Shinyou Kai Ni and base Saratoga are able to attack at night with guns regardless of equipment.
  • This attack can be triggered even when moderately damaged (中破).
  • The attack power is calculated using the surface night battle damage formula.
    • Because of this, these attacks are weak.
  • There is no critical multiplier bonus from plane proficiency.
  • If the enemy fleet contains a submarine, the light carriers will be forced to target them.

2. Swordfish Night Attack

  • This is just limited to Ark Royal when equipped with Swordfish.
  • This attack cannot be triggered when moderately damaged (中破).
  • The attack power is calculated using the surface night battle damage formula but only taking into account Ark Royal's base firepower and the Swordfish's stats.
    • All other equipment stat bonuses are ignored.
  • There is a critical multiplier bonus from plane proficiency.

3. Carrier Night Cut-In

  • When equipped with either the Night Operation Aviation Personnel or Night Operation Aviation Personnel + Skilled Deckhands along with the right night planes, all carriers are able to perform carrier night cut-ins.
  • This attack cannot be triggered when moderately damaged (中破).
    • Armoured carriers can still trigger the attack at moderate damage.
  • The attack power is calculated using the carrier night cut-in formula.
    • Only the base stats of the carriers and the stats of the night planes are taken into account.
    • Slot size plays a role in determining damage.
    • Planes in slots that have been reduced to 0 are ignored.
  • It can trigger regardless of the result of the fighter combat phase in day.
  • You need a minimum of one night fighter and the Night Operations Personnel to trigger this attack.
    • It can trigger even if you have no bombers.
  • Light carriers will ignore submarines to target surface ships with this attack.

  1. Only applies to Suisei Model 12 (w/ Type 31 Photoelectric Fuze Bombs).
  2. Only applies to Swordfish and Zero Fighter Type 62 (Fighter-bomber/Iwai Squadron).

Important Notes

  • If a ship fulfills multiple cut-in requirements, the game will check against the list from top to bottom.
    • There is the chance the cut in will fail and trigger a normal carrier attack instead.
  • If the cut in fails to penetrate enemy armour or is evaded, it will deal chip damage instead.

Trigger Rate

Because carrier night shelling and Swordfish night attacks are just normal attacks, they have a 100% trigger chance.

The trigger rate formula for carrier night cut-ins is currently unknown. It is speculated to be similar to the night battle special attack trigger rate formula. It is known that luck plays a role in the trigger rate.

Equipment Setups

Below are recommended equipment setups for carrier night attacks. If an attack type is not listed, it means that it is subpar and not worth considering. The order of the equipment is for illustrative purposes only. You should put your most powerful night planes in the largest slots.

Equipment Setup Attack Type Notes
Carrier-based Night Battle Fighter Carrier-based Night Battle Fighter Carrier-based Night Battle Torpedo Bomber Aviation Personnel NFighter/NFighter/NBomber

NFighter/NBomber

This is the standard setup for carrier night cut-ins. It gives you the best cut-in with the second best as a backup.
Carrier-based Night Battle Fighter Dive Bomber Carrier-based Night Battle Torpedo Bomber Aviation Personnel NFighter/NBomber

NFighter/NBomber/Other

This is an alternative setup if you lack night planes. The dive bomber would be the Type 62 Iwai. It allows the carrier to perform some night cut-ins while also allowing them to perform daytime cut-ins. It is generally not recommended because it's multiplier is the weakest.
Carrier-based Night Battle Fighter Carrier-based Night Battle Fighter Carrier-based Night Battle Torpedo Bomber Dive Bomber Various This is an alternative set up for Saratoga Mk.II and Akagi Kai Ni E. It allows them to perform Carrier Cut-In Attacks in addition to the night cut-ins. Depending on the 4th plane being the Photobomb Suisei or the T62 Iwai, it can give them access to a wider array of cut-in attacks, increasing the chance that one will trigger. For Akagi, her 5th slot can hold a Saiun or another night fighter.
