See Combat/Artillery Spotting and Combat/Night Battle for details on how to trigger special attacks.

Certain equipment setups are used to reliably trigger day-time artillery spotting or night-time cut-ins. This article displays most of the more common or particularly effective setups.

Destroyers

Function Slot 1 Slot 2 Slot 3 Notes
General Use Small Caliber Main Gun/Dual-purpose Gun

Auxiliary 12.7cm Twin Mount Type-B Kai 2 can be substituted for 10cm Twin High-angle Mounts, and are especially effective after being improved and equipped onto a high-firepower destroyer like Yuudachi or Ayanami. Otherwise, 10cm Twin High-angle Mounts or 10cm Twin High-angle Mount + Anti-Aircraft Fire Directors are preferred for their fleet AA defense modifier, though the latter is difficult to obtain.

or Auxiliary
Auxiliary equipment are typically equipped on destroyers; however, luck-based destroyers benefit the most from adding an additional torpedo to their equipment in terms of night battle damage output... Candidates for night battle cut-ins without luck modernization include: Yukikaze, Hatsushimo, Shigure, Ayanami, and Ushio.
Anti-Sub Warfare SONARSonar SONARSonar Depth Charges
Depth Charge
On maps with few subs, or where you don't need to kill the subs, two main guns and a sonar in the third slot are useful.

Using an Air RADAR increases the effect of the anti-air cut-in at the cost of night battle damage (cannot perform double attack with only 1 gun equipped).

RADARRADAR These two have high firepower, so they are typically equipped with guns. Priority equipment includes 12.7cm Twin Mount Type-B Kai 2 and 10cm Twin High-angle Mount + Anti-Aircraft Fire Director, or any improved small caliber main guns.

Ships boasting both high luck and AA can also be outfitted for mixed cut-ins instead of torpedo to better utilize their AA capability at the cost of lower effectiveness of the cut-in attack (both chance-to-activate and damage).
Akizuki/Teruzuki Dual-purpose Gun
High-angle Gun
Dual-purpose Gun

RADARAnti-Air RADAR Akizuki and Teruzuki can perform anti-air cut-ins without a fire director; they only need either two high-angle guns or a high-angle gun and an AA RADAR.
