"Equipment" are gears meant to be fitted on girls to enhance their combat capacity, adding several sets of Stats and unlocking certain Mechanics.
- There are 499 equipent as of the 28/05/2023 update.
Equipment come in multiple categories & types using different icons (sometimes overlapping between categories), and bringing most mechanics, each with its own behaviors and equipability.
The main ways to acquire equipment are:
- Development (crafting),
- Ships' stock gears,
- Improvement upgrades,
- Quests rewards,
- Ranking rewards,
- Event rewards,
- Shop purchases (some "Consumables Equipment" only).
Equipment Categories, Types, Icons, and Mechanics
Every piece of equipment in the game has an icon, regrouping them by type, giving a quick visual indicator of what a given equipment is.
- One icon can be shared with different equipment types.
- Some icons are used for a single equipment.
- Some equipment icons on the wiki will be displayed with "text" Text, indicating special notes like stats or sub-types of equipment.
All icons here and on the rest of the wiki are clickable.

|Anti-Ground Equipment||See Anti-Installation for a better understanding.|
- Some equipment have unique mechanics within their categories.

Note that some equipment can appear on more than one list. The lists below do not include buildable equipment. Note that buildable equipment can also be obtained as stock equipment, quests, or improvement upgrades. Please refer to the individual equipment pages to find a more detailed list of where/how to obtain them.
Equipment obtainable as ship girl's stock gears.
- Equipment from event-only ships are in bold
Equipment obtainable through Quests.
- Equipment available from "repeatable" quests are in bold.

Equipment available by upgrading other equipment through Akashi's Improvement Arsenal.
- Equipment only obtainable via Akashi Improvements are in Bold.
- Equipment requiring limited ones to be obtained are in Italic
Equipment currently unobtainable in-game. They were event rewards, ranking rewards, or limited-time quest rewards. They may return as stock equipment, improvement upgrades, event rewards, or quest rewards in the future.
- Equipment obtainable via improvement from "unobtainable equipment" are in Bold.
- This list does not include equipment from event-only ships.
Note that the equipment IDs 321, 448, & 462 were never added to the game.
- The Reppuu Kai Ni (CarDiv 1/Skilled) (ID 337) was added to game files, but never given away.
Each equipment in the game comes with at least one "Fairy" (just like the other NPC ones).
- Those fairies are mostly alone, but can come in groups or followed by some animals,
- Most fairies are "original characters", being only linked to an equipment.
- Some fairies are seen on several equipment, mostly equipment of the same family,
- Many fairies also represent specific ship girls, often on equipment historically tied to them.
Some gears can also have some historical details on them, especially advanced ones. Those details can be:
- Paintings, like for specific squadron planes,
- Fairy scenery, where the fairies are playing an historical scene,
- The fairies themselves, where the fairies represent some historical element, like a ship's insignia.
Additionally, some equipment can be "glowing", with either the gear, part of the gear, the fairy, or part of the fairy having a glowing halo around them.
- The equipment glowing, the part of the equipment glowing, and the color of the glowing are arbitrary.
