Smoke Generator Mod 1

I was taking the Huanghe out for a spin.  From what I have gathered, it has the Perth's smoke.  Meaning if you move at 1/4 speed, the smoke to move with you.  As I got the smoke on, there was a countdown timer on it.  It's lasting like about a 90 seconds per description.  So how does it work with the Smoke Generator Mod 1?  It states increase action time by 30% and reduce duration by 5%.  Because the smoke is moving with the ship, wouldn't that mean the smoke is active for the entire 90 seconds?  Therefore with the Smoke Generator, it will last another 27% while the -5% duration has no effect?

Huanghe smoke description (without Smoke Gen Mod): 

  • Emission time 90 seconds (the time puffing out new smoke circles)
  • Duration time 10 seconds (the time a smoke circle lasts)

Total duration would be 90s + 10s = 100s

Huanghe smoke description (with Smoke Gen Mod):

  • Emission time 117s (130% of 90s)
  • Duration time 9.5s (95% of 10s)

Total duration would be 117s + 9.5s = 126.6s

 

So yes, this consumable goes great with this ship. I hope this answers your question.

^ This.  Great mod for the Perth and the Huanghe.

And virtually no other ships.

I wish WG would get on and release these upgrades for purchase with your personal 'oil wallet' .

I have never received an upgrade no matter the SCs I have received and from what I'm aware, because other players have, they have requested a reduction in the chances of getting one (which WG implemented). So that makes it less likely.

 

If it is any consolation, if they were one sale for oil, they wouldn't need to be in SCs at all - I live in hope! :Smile_Default:

I use it on my Perth, and like it very much.  If someone bought me a Huang He (not spending my money on that thing) I'd put my spare on it until they release something else with creeping smoke.

Wise choice. I have yet to find a descent role for that thing to play...

Look at the stats for the Huang He, just because it didn't get good reviews doesn't mean it is garbage. If I get the smoke mod for mine, I will be so, so happy

For tier 6 cruisers:

#2 win %

#4 damage

# 1 experience

#1 K/D

#2 planes shot down, just behind  the almighty Cleveland

 

You have to play it very, very different from any other ship, I didn't buy mine either. I received it in a Santa crate.

I took it out for a spin and I loved the ship. She for sure doesn't suit everybody's playing style,

Once the Cleveland goes to tier 8, the Huang He will be by far the best AA ship at tier 6. When I get uptiered against a tier 8 carrier, it holds it's own
