Example of recon nodes on map 6-3

Air Reconnaissance is a mechanic seen on 6-3 that enables a chance at increased resources from specific nodes with the use of Seaplanes.


On Nodes G and H, Seaplanes will be flown towards the "green X" (the recon route is shown on the map as green arrows).

  • Successful reconnaissance will reward additional resources upon getting a B+ rank on the boss.
    • Neither G or H have combat.
    • Animation will be shown for the Air Reconnaissance; if both Large Flying Boat Large Flying BoatsType 2 Large Flying Boat
      PBY-5A Catalina
      and other Seaplane Seaplanes (SPR and SPB) are brought, Flying Boat animation takes priority.
    • Success rate of the air reconnaissance depends on the LoS and Seaplanes count.
    • All reconnaissance rewards are forfeit if the fleet fails to win at the boss node J.

The formula for Air Reconnaissance is:

Air Reconnaissance Success Formula
[math]\displaystyle{ R = \sum_{\text{SPR ; SPB} } \text{LoS} \times \sqrt{\sqrt{\text{Plane}_\text{Count} } } + \sum_{\text{Flying Boats} } \text{LoS} \times \sqrt{\text{Plane}_\text{Count} } }[/math]
  • [math]\displaystyle{ \text{LoS} }[/math] is the base LoS Line of Sight of the plane without fit bonuses.
  • [math]\displaystyle{ \text{Plane}_\text{Count} }[/math] is the remaining amount of planes in a slot.
  • The minimum "[math]\displaystyle{ R }[/math]" to achieve success is 12 for G and 16 for H.
  • For Great Success, the requirement is
[math]\displaystyle{ R_\text{GS} = R \times (1.6 + rand(0 ; 0.6)) }[/math]
  • This means that the minimum and maximum requirement for Great Success for H is 25.6 and 35.2.

To sum up, the more LoS and Seaplanes used, the better, with Flying Boats counting for more than other seaplanes.
