Combat/Artillery Spotting

From Kancolle Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

Artillery Spotting is a means of increasing the damage your ships deal and their accuracy during the day, and manifests in either a double attack or a cut-in.

The following are universal requirements for a ship to perform artillery spotting:

  • At least one slot of seaplanes must be equipped.
  • Air superiority or supremacy must be achieved that battle.
  • Ships cannot perform these while heavily damaged (大破).

The following ships are unable to perform artillery spotting either because of a 0 plane capacity or the inability to equip any appropriate setups.

  • The slot order does not matter, though be mindful that putting your planes in a ship's largest slot can improve your chances of triggering a special attack.
  • When neither special attack is triggered, the ship will just do a single attack, dealing 100% damage.

Trigger Chance

  • The flagship has ~15% higher chance in triggering Artillery Spotting.
  • Losing Air Supremacy (AS+) to Air Superiority (AS) will lower the trigger chances by ~12%. Higher penalty for mixed attack.
  • Higher fleet total LoS (Line of Sight) will slightly increase the chances, around 5% ~ 10% per 100 additional FLoS. Notice that FLoS equals to the sum of LoS stats from all the ships in your fleet. Bonuses from equipment are included in the calculation.
  • Certain equipment set-ups provide a higher chance of triggering.
