Range Range is a stat that determines the Shooting Order during the First Shelling Phase and OASW.

  • In those phases, both fleets will take turns shelling the opposing fleet, with the turn order defined by each ship's range Range stat. It is possible to increase a ship's range with proper equipment.
  • The shelling order is Longest > Very Long > Long > Medium > Short > None.
    • If two or more ships tie for range, the order between them is random.
  • "Longest" range is only attainable on certain ships, using range extenders (see Range Extension).
    • Unlike the other ranges, Longest does not have a proper in-game icon and so is just displayed as "Very Long".
  • "None" range is mostly reserved for Abyssal Aircraft Carriers and Transport Ships.

Base Range

Some ships have a different range than the rest of their type (often following a remodel):

Base Range Type Exceptions
None N/A[1] N/A
Medium CA, CAV, CL, CLT, CT, AS
Very Long N/A
Longest N/A N/A
  1. Transport Ships and some Abyssal CV(L) are the only Vessels having "None range".

Range Extension

It is impossible to reduce the base Range of a ship, but certain equipment can extend it.
