The Type 1 Armor Piercing shell is an improved version of the secret Type 91 Armor Piercing shell fired from long-range cannons.
It is intended to work by plunging into the sea, striking the hull below the waterline of the enemy ship like a torpedo.
It has better performance than the Type 91, and has colored dyes for identification and target assists.
It can be equipped on battleships, aviation battleships, and fast battleships.


Armor-Piercing Shell AP Shells are mainly used for increasing the general damage potential of batleships, with further bonuses for Artillery Spotting and Special Attacks.

  • They also play some Anti-Installation role, notably against "Hard-Skinned Installations".
