Grab a big cup of coffee.  There's a lot to read in this one.

  • The Venezia and Hindenburg lines, Prinz Eugen and Admiral Schröder will receive Depth Charge Airstrikes instead of the Depth Charges they currently have.
  • Tier V-VIII battleships will receive an increase in the Depth Charge Airstrike range. Both Tier V-VIII battleships and cruisers will have their Depth Charge Airstrike cooldown reduced. To balance this, the bomb damage will also be slightly reduced for these ships. This means that you will be able to use Depth Charge Airstrike more often but with a lower damage output per use.
    • Ships that currently have special ASW settings will not be receiving any changes unless specifically noted.

I'll insert a suggestion here:  Can there be certain ships that drop sonar buoys that detect subs at all depths for 5 seconds.  Perhaps Scharnhorst '43 ?

I was wondering why some of my Submarine Captains were trying to circumvent my Port's supply system to order large quantities of "FlexSeal".
I guess they read your words.  😉

Airship Escort
 
Airship Escort is returning to the game as a standalone, temporary battle type!

In this mode, players will be tasked with leading their allied airship to its destination before the enemy team does. Players can also achieve victory by destroying the enemy ships.

This iteration will use the same ruleset that was used before Airship Escort was added to Random Battles.

Players will be able to utilize Tier VIII-X ships of any ship type.

This is a welcome action, I feel.

Finally, to balance out the changes to ASW, we will improve the turning circle radius of all submarines, so that they have the opportunity to better maneuver and reposition. On average, their turning circle will become around 20% better. 

Wow WG physics. Modern Russian Alpha class subs have nothing compared to WG subs. I am glad they were not teaching this when I went to school. Granted, at the time our classroom pet was a Velociraptor.  53EB5C0D-3B99-4A7E-8E10-0AD06C0F515D.gif.201f684365a411bc4b1914e529d99ec2.gif Lets hope that WG does not get the idea to use Newspeak from 1984.

Karl Doorman only as a normal commander? I thought he is gonna be the legendary commander for the Dutch. I don't know who they are planning to introduce as legendary one. And no info about new ranked season?

DDs opened that can of worms years ago, and MN BBs and speed boosting RC BCs sealed that fate. Hyperactive Torpedoes were the ink on the parchment.
