The Star Shell is a parachute flare fired from the ship's cannons.
It can illuminate the enemy fleet's position which can aid any allied ships' attacks on the enemy (it can also lower the offensive capabilities of the enemy fleet).

  • Chance to provide all of the following effects when a ship equipped with this enters a night battle:
