Eagles do not breed doves!

A slightly old-fashioned reconnaissance flying boat biplane that can be launched by catapult, named after the walrus, developed and operated in the country of black tea.
Although it is slow, it is easy to use, with a mass-produced wooden frame, and it was used on battleships and heavy cruisers from the country of tea, including the battleship Rodney.
This equipment is implemented in its ship-born plane night reconnaissance version, for surface combat.

Seaplane Seaplanes are the main aircraft type used by non-carrier ships (mainly battleships, cruisers, and auxiliaries).

Reconnaissance AircraftReconnaissance AircraftLarge Reconnaissance AircraftSpLand-based Reconnaissance AircraftLBReconnaissance SeaplaneReconNight Reconnaissance Seaplane are planes that:

Night Reconnaissance Seaplane Night Recons have the ability to trigger Night Contact.

  • 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.
  • Acts as an Reconnaissance Seaplane too in day battle (with activation rates proportionally lower with the Line of Sight 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.

  • The particular camouflage of the Walrus in the equipment card uses the same scheme used by the Walrus stationed in HMS Rodney.
  • The quote on the description "Eagles do not breed doves" is HMS Rodney's motto.
