Skilled lookouts can be deployed on surface warships.
Using their skilled naked eyes, they can largely contribute in scouting the enemy depending on the situation and before the advent of enemy radars, can spot for targets, especially during night battles.


Lookout Surface Ship Personnel are equippable in RE. They:

  • Increase cut-in rates in Night Battles for the ship equipping it,
  • Are required to trigger some "New Type" Cut-ins,
  • Play an animation right before cut-in animations,
  • Bring an accuracy bonus against PT Imp.

Historical Background

A crow's nest is a structure in the upper part of the main mast of a ship or a structure that is used as a lookout point. This position ensured the best view for lookouts to spot approaching hazards, other ships, or land. It was the best device for this purpose until the invention of radar.
