Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary.

 

Flooding display is added to the Ship HP Indicator at the bottom left of the screen and in the lower part of the screen there are flooding effects. On the model of the ship, an emergency light alarm is activated and the effects of pumping out the water are displayed.

Commander skill tree UI is refreshed. Now the skills which are not useful on the current ship are marked with a special symbol.

In a previous blog or message, LaGal was also supposed to get a turret catapult, has that been dropped?

i thought that only worked on battleships because of the size of their turrets.

what is LaGal plane?an UAV?

edit: oh it's an loire 130,a flying boat.

I know what you're referring to. Here's the earlier teaser image; IIRC, from WG Fest earlier this year.

They probably canceled it. LaGal would have only had it on her A Hull, which should have been removed by her B Hull and replaced with additional AA mounts, as was done historically.

The problem though is that the AA mounts that replaced the turret-mounted Catapult is not modeled or a part of LaGal B Hull anyway, so in theory, should could keep a catapult plane if WG didn't want to buff her AA a tiny bit more to add the AA mounts.

So which planes will be available for these ships? The spotter plane, the catapult fighter, or both?

Arizona already has her fantail catapult. Historically she had one on top of X-turret (which she doesn't currently have in the game) and one on the fantail (which she does have).

Spoiler

Unless they are planning on giving her two planes at once (and somehow different from the captain skill), I don't see the point for her unless they are just trying to make the graphic correct. If she can launch a fighter and a spotter at the same time that would be nice, but I doubt that.

My Orion is still waiting for torpedo tubes (historically the ship was equipped with 3 x 21-inch submerged torpedo tubes, one on each broadside and another in the stern). It's the most awesome feature of Orion.:Smile_teethhappy:

WGing made the decision over 3 years ago to not put underwater tubes in the game. On a historical note about 99.9% of BB's that had them eventually had them plated over as they were found to be poor for seakeeping as well as the limitations inherent in the design.
