A special kind of main battery shell used by battleships that is specifically used as an anti-air weapon.
The shrapnel, when ejected from the bullet in large quantities, potentially encases and then annihilates all enemy planes in formation.
The questionable accuracy rate of the firing mechanism of the main battery of battleships is the only weakness, but this is traded for the immense AA firepower boost.
Available for battleships, aviation battleships, heavy cruisers, and the like.

The Sanshiki (San-Shiki or sanshikidan, lit. "type 3") ) anti-aircraft shell, also known as "Beehives", was designed for several gun calibers, including the 46.0 cm guns of the Yamato-class battleships.

The round was equipped with a delay fuse set before firing that detonated the shell at the set altitude; on explosion, the steel stays and the incendiary tubes were ejected in a 20-degree cone forward, with the shell fragments from the explosion itself further increasing the amount of debris, in which the explosion of the shell deals heavy damage to incoming aircraft.

However, since it used the battleship's main gun, the low rate of fire means the battleship is vulnerable for a period of time, but it does increase the AA stat of the ship.

Available for BB and CA(V).


Buildable. Stock equipment of Hiei Kai Ni and Haruna Kai Ni.

Quest reward from B40.

Does increased damage against "installation type" bosses. All of these bosses were based on real-life airfields, which the type 3 shell was designed to destroy. With type 3 equipped, firepower * 2.5 is used for pre-cap damage calculations during night battle instead of firepower + torpedo.
