Smoke Generator Smoke Generators can be used in combat to deploy a smoke screen.

Example of a large smoke deployed.
  • There are 3 smoke screen sizes, being Small < Medium < Large.
    • The maximum smoke size that can be generated is dependent on the number of smoke generators, being respectively 1/2/3.
    • Note that Improved improvements also affect the maximum smoke level possible.
  • It sharply reduces the accuracy of all fleets, proportionally to the smoke screen size (the hit rate is still capped at 11%).
    • This effect can be partially bypassed by using radars (both sides).
  • The effect will last for the day battle, even so the animation will fade before the battle's end.

Smoke activation button next to the Formation ones.
  • If equipped, it can be activated with a specific button when selecting the formation.
    • It can be activated multiple times per sortie until it triggers, being triggerable once, in day battle only.
  • It cannot be activated in Exercises in the current implementation.
  • The trigger rate is not 100% and depends on the fleet's flagship's luck Luck, as well as the amount and type of Smoke Generators used.
    • For combined fleets, it is the luck of the main flagship.
    • The size of the triggered smoke screen depends on how many smoke generators are used.
  • It will only trigger at the beginning of the Shelling phase.

The 3 different smoke size

  • The smoke gives an Accuracy malus to both fleets when used:
    • Please note that these are initial estimations and are subject to change.
    • It is currently unknown if the airstrike accuracy is affected by the smoke.
    • Some modifiers are impossible to determine because the fleet hit the lower bound hit rate (11% hard cap).
    • There are some inconsistencies between "old" and "new" enemies.
    • Having a (surface ?) radar equipped reduces the smoke effect for both fleets, but only for the shelling phase.

  • AA effects:
    • The smoke affects the allied shootdown but not the enemy shootdown.
    • No fixed shootdown above 2 has been observed under a smoke.
    • The guaranteed shootdown does not seem to be affected.
    • A modifier to the Adjusted AA is suspected but there is not enough data to confirm it.
  • The Smoke reduce the Anti-Air Rocket Barrage trigger rate either directly or by reducing the Adjusted AA.
