"Equipment" are gears meant to be fitted on girls to enhance their combat capacity, adding several sets of Stats and unlocking certain Mechanics.

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:

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" Empty SlotText, indicating special notes like stats or sub-types of equipment.
    • Categories labeled as Empty SlotSp are for "special subtypes", types of equipment with the same mechanics as their normal main type, but corresponding to "larger variants", equipable on respectively larger or more capable ships.

All icons here and on the rest of the wiki are clickable.

For a better understanding of plane-related mechanics, see Aerial Combat
Carriers-Bassed Those planes are mainly equipable on Carriers (CV/CVB/CVL).
FighterNight Fighter Fighters Fighter Fighters FightersFighterNight Fighter/Night Fighter are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to bring Air Power during the 1st Aerial Stage, with their "Fighter Power" Anti-Air stat being the most important factor in this regard. Fighters are additionally needed for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI) during the day Shelling.
Night Fighter Night Fighters
Dive Bomber Dive Bombers Dive Bomber Dive Bombers Dive Bombers are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to do damage during the Airstrike, with their "Dive Bombing" Dive Bomber Attack stat being the most important factor in this regard. Dive Bombers are additionally needed for dealing damage during day Shelling, especially for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI).
Dive Bomber Fighter-Bombers "Fighter-Bombers" are "Dive Bombers", both behaving the exact same way, with the only notable difference being the Improvement effects given by Improved.
Torpedo Bomber Night Torpedo Bomber Torpedo Bombers Torpedo Bomber Torpedo Bombers Torpedo BombersTorpedo BomberNight Torpedo Bomber/Night Bomber are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to do damage during the Airstrike, with their "Torpedo" Torpedo Attack stat being the most important factor in this regard. Torpedo Bombers are additionally needed for dealing damage during day Shelling, especially for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI).
Night Torpedo Bomber Night Torpedo Bombers
JetFighterBomber2.pngJetFighterBomber1.png Jet-powered Fighter-Bombers Jets are a special type of carrier-based bombers that follow the same damage calculation as regular Dive Bombers using the "dive bombing" Dive Bomber Attack stat, while providing great additional "air power" Anti-Air, as well as "Long Range" Range.
  • They will notably carry out an additional exclusive attack called "Jet Assault" (JA) before the beginning of any battle.
  • They cannot trigger the CVCI.
  • They bring some accuracy bonus against PT Imp.
  • See Jets for more details.

Land-based Patrol Aircraft Patrol Aircraft Land-based Patrol Aircraft Land-Based Patrol Aircraft are counted as regular Land-Based Attackers on every aspect.

Additionally, Patrol Aircraft are ASW Aircraft, and so are mainly used for ASW (see here).

Large Aircraft Land-based Heavy Bomber Heavy Bombers Land-based Heavy Bomber Land-Based Heavy Bombers mostly work like other Land-Based Attackers, but unlike them, they have only 9 planes in LBAS slots, instead of 18, as well as slightly worse damage modifiers, dividing their base attack power by about half.
Interceptors/Fighters Land-based Fighter Army Fighters Land-Based Fighters/InterceptorsLand-based FighterLand-based Fighter are LBAS exclusive fighters, that are used to either:
  • Provide Sortie Fighter-Power, where the "fighter Power" Anti-Air, "interception" Interception, and "combat radius" Operation Radius stats are the most important,
  • Intercept enemy bombers, where the "fighter Power" Anti-Air, "interception" Interception, and especially the "anti-bomber" Anti-Bomber stats are the most important.
Land-based Fighter Navy Fighters Navy Fighters
Rocket Interceptors

  • High Altitude Interceptors multiply the total air power of all land bases in Air Defense mode, when defending against enemy High-Altitude Bombers. The multiplier depends on the number of high altitude interceptors equipped and which difficulty the event map is played on:

  • The scouting phase animation will not show up like day battles; instead, the night recon plane's animation is played in the enemy fleet's radar (as seen in this picture).
  • Acts as an Reconnaissance Seaplane too in day battle (with activation rates proportionally lower with the Line of Sight stat).
  • [Bug] In a Combined Fleet situation, if a ship in the fleet equipped with a night scout is evacuated from the combined fleet using the Fleet Command Facility, the night recon can still trigger and activate as the fleet proceeds onward and enters a night battle.

  • This cut-in also triggers the Star Shell effect and bonuses.
Seaplane Fighter Seaplane Fighters Seaplane Fighter Seaplane Fighters share all the regular Fighters mechanics, with a different set of ship equippability. Additionally, they:
Large Flying Boat Large Flying Boats Large Flying Boat Large Flying Boats share most of the properties of Reconnaissance Aircraft. They notably:
  • Can perform ASW attacks on their own (similar to Rotorcraft).
  • Increase the minimum Range of Land Bases, from +1 to +3 range depending on the base's unmodified range.
  • Can be used in the Air Reconnaissance nodes mechanic.
  • When equipped in any slot size, the plane count is dropped down to 1, refunding any bauxite.

Although it is a scout which does not actually participate in Aerial Combat mechanics-wise, it is still included in the launching animation if other planes are launched.

Misc Some auxiliary aircraft, mainly used for ASW.
Rotorcraft Rotorcraft Autogyros Rotorcraft are ASW Aircraft, being used to trigger some OASW and Land-based ASW attacks.

As they do not have any Dive Bombing Dive Bomber Attack stat, they do not participate to Phases 2 & 3 of Aerial Combat and are immune to shootdown. They:

  • Will launch during aerial battle if other planes are launched, but cannot start an aerial battle on their own.
  • CV/B/L equipped with them will still require a Dive Bomber Dive Bomber or a Torpedo Bomber Torpedo Bomber to attack submarines, as they are unable to attack anything without a bomber.
  • AS and Akashi can equip them, but the former cannot attack SS, and the latter has a carrying capacity of 0 so they do not function.
  • AO can equip them, but their attack animation will still be a depth charge animation.

Their LBAS Combat Radius cannot be extended.

This is a segment from a bigger article. See Combat/Anti-Installation for details on Installation mechanics.

Carriers will only attack installations in the shelling phase if equipped with Torpedo Bombers or Anti-Installation Dive Bombers.

  • Additionally, carriers will attack installations if equipped with non-special dive bombers AND one of the special dive bombers below.
  • Any other dive bomber will completely disable shelling against installations even if the carrier has a torpedo bomber equipped.
  • This can be very useful to manipulate the targeting mechanic so the carriers attack important targets.

This mechanic is still under investigation!

Activation
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It will only trigger at the beginning of the Shelling phase.
Once activated
  • The amount and type of Smoke Generators used affects the effect of the smoke screen.
  • It sharply reduces the combat effectiveness of all fleets by decreasing their accuracy.
    • Enemies equipped with radar can bypass this effect.
  • The effect will last for a limited duration.

When an equipped ship's morale drops below a certain level during a Sortie, a ration is consumed, greatly restoring the morale of the ship,

  • The ships directly above and below in the combat screen are also given a small morale boost.

They slightly increase TP gauge drain during Transport Operations.

When a Ration is equipped on a girl upon entering a Boss Node, a prompt will appear giving a choice to use the Ration or not.

Rations consumed by a girl give a Post-cap bonus against all Installation.

Special categories
Anti-Ground Equipment See Anti-Installation for a better understanding.
Notes
  • Some equipment have unique mechanics within their categories.
  • Certain mechanics like AACI and ASW will differentiate equipment within their category depending on their raw stats.

Equipment Cosmetics

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.
