This night recon seaplane was developed for use of DesRon flagships. The airframe is painted black, has an excellent loiter time, and included within the crew is a skilled spotter trained in night operations aboard (it can also spot allied ships during nighttime reconnaissance).
Seaplanes are the main aircraft type used by non-carrier ships (mainly battleships, cruisers, and auxiliaries).
- They are notably required to trigger Artillery Spotting.
Reconnaissance AircraftSpLBRecon are planes that:
- Can trigger Contact.
- Does not contribute Fighter Power in Aerial Combat, and so cannot be shot down during it (can be shot down during Detection).
- When equipped to a Land Base:
- The scouting phase animation will not show up like day battles; instead, the night recon plane's animation is played in the enemy fleet's radar (as seen in this picture).
- Acts as an Reconnaissance Seaplane too in day battle (with activation rates proportionally lower with the stat).
- [Bug] In a Combined Fleet situation, if a ship in the fleet equipped with a night scout is evacuated from the combined fleet using the Fleet Command Facility, the night recon can still trigger and activate as the fleet proceeds onward and enters a night battle.
