Huanghe Smoke mod 1

I run my Huanghe with AA spec and do ok with it. 

I was thinking of getting the Smoke mode for it, it will make me lose my slot 3 AA and I will lose 20% range on my AA, if I run the mod.

I really would like the extra smoke though to increase my damage output.

Has anybody ran this ship with it?

Yes, it is pretty essential in making Perth and the Huang work.
Though playing that ship is always a ride on the struggle bus.

The only special upgrade I use in the whole game is Spotter Plane in Perth's Slot 1.  With Arsenal up I'm fighting temptation to put Hydro in Slot 2 and Smoke in Slot 3.

I feel like I'm missing something somewhere about ships only being able to mount a single upgrade at a time, but too lazy to look it up.

Hold on *ahem*, @Huanghe

Anyways, if you have the mod, and don't have a Perth, that's exactly where I'd put it.

I was unaware that Huanghe was able to mount the smoke mod, and I would say that you should definitely use that mod if it can mount it. I think that since the AA upgrade increases your AA range to 6km (7.2 with AFT) that you will be getting yourself plane spotted more when out of smoke (unless you constantly turn them off and on) by planes. The smoke mod would increase the smoke puff duration to 117s from 90 (and your AA bloom will be a manageable 6km, or 5.0km without AFT). Tell me how it works out for you! 

The problem I have with being a new-ish account is that I don't have any coal (because I am not in a clan) and haven't gotten any special modules from any kind of event or super container. I am looking for adding the hydro and smoke special upgrades to my Huanghe when I get the chance.

I actually removed the smoke mod to go full AA. Damage did drop a bit, but plane kills went up alot. When my smoke is done I try to hang around islands & shoot down spotter planes. I usually turn off the AA guns until a flight spots me, keeps them from fleeing too early. I say give the mod a try for a while, you can always put it back on later if you want to go full AA again...

I took mine off of Perth and put it on Haida. Much better use for that mod(I believe it lasts 50% longer), assuming you have that ship(and are limited to only 2 mods covering the 3 that it works for: Perth, Huang Hue and Haida).

It's worth it.  I have one on Perth and another on Haida.  I never figured I'd find a use for the second one I got from a super container.

Hey

I just got the Huanghe and don't see where there is a upgrade slot for smoke, unlike the Perth.  Too bad you don't have defensive AA, which would give this boat better options.

You have to somehow (buy, win, steal) get the special mod in you inventory 1st, then it will show up, in the middle upgrade slot i think.

This screenshot illustrates where to use it. The Smoke Generator Mod 1 is available from fine shops like the Arsenal for only 17,000 coal plus shipping.

Hey

Thanks for the info guys; does the smoke upgrade mod help the Huanghe as much as it does for the Perth?  What about the smoke expert on the captain skill?  Thanks for the feedback.

Hey

Since the Huanghe is somewhat of a Meh boat; too bad they don't give is Defensive AA so you could make it into a quasi AA boat.  As right now, it's not really good at anything, it sure could use a bit more HP to be on par with the Perth at least.  The Defensive AA could at least give it it's own identity/specialty.

Absofreakinlutly. This is a must have on both ships.

Unless you plan on covering teammates with your smoke on a regular basis, this would be a waste of a skill points. It will not help you.
