to my recollection, in the last fire vs water team event, the special radar upgrade was not made available, even though all the other useless ones were. (spotter aircraft, smoke, dmg control party etc).

can we get an event where we can reliably get some radar upgrades. relying on SC is just too frustrating, i opened 11 SCs this weekend and got nothing.

I believe it was available, during the Fire & Ice event - definitely one of the two best modules (along with the speed boost module), imho.

Mounting it on Baltimore gives 45 seconds of radar - and has allowed that ship to completely wreck a match for many a DD and RN CLs.

It should be rare, though - as it allows a significant advantage for those players that are willing to forego the traditional slot choices, and whose play-style see them playing VMF and US cruisers in a cap supporting role.

It was available in the Fire/Water event. By recently moving the slot it takes to a different one, it's an easy choice to make and as ddoubletapp1 states, makes ships quite strong against DDs.

 

That would be the same DDs that pretty much sit on the bottom of the tiers for survival and damage - that's balance for you I guess. :Smile_facepalm: At least its only 8 ships that can mount the module, no problem, adapt and overcome. :Smile_smile: 

 

WG does say it will change things if balance looks wrong, I guess they will see for themselves soon enough, both the above stats have been that way for a while now.

I just got it in an anniversary container and put it on my Baltimore.  It is amazingly sweet

They're very sweet! I have 2 of them, the first one I mounted on my Des Moines. Got the second one this weekend in an anniversary container but cant use it on Atlanta or Indianapolis and I can use it on Neptune only if I replace Smoke Generator with Radar. :Smile_sad:

I may have to experiment. Replace smoke with Radar and drive Neptune like I do Des Moines. (lobbing over islands as much as possible) It might work, and having Radar AND Hydro would be sweet!
