The WG42 is a ship-borne rocket launcher developed from another country (Germany) for anti-ground and anti-shipping attacks. It can be used aboard U-boats where it saw practical use. Mainly effective for anti-ground strikes, suffered from poor accuracy; however, it can be fired from a shallow depth similar to the anti-ground submarine missiles of today.

  • Grants a flat 75 firepower bonus against installation type enemies, in contrast to how Type 3 Shell behaves (2.5 firepower multiplier).
    • Subsequent WG42s will encounter diminishing returns (two WG42s on one ship will only confer a 110 FP bonus
    • This bonus is not affected by the firepower modifiers of the Type 3 shell
    • The WG 42 also confers a post-cap bonus against certain types of enemies, such as Supply Depot Princess [1]
    • Unlike Type 3 Shell, there is an unique attack animation when a ship equipped with WG42 attacks the appropriate target.
  • Akitsushima cannot equip it, despite seaplane tenders being listed as capable.
