Oh, does anyone know what the lowest concealment is now?

I think by comparison to Sims and Leningrad, something close to 6.6km from the 6.9 she is at now.

Cool stuff, should help the grind to benson and trying to torp drop with the stock torpedoes.  

 

Spoiler

OP got so excited we got hit with TMI and learned a new pair of pants was needed. :Smile-_tongue:

From the Dev blog; "Initial surface detectability range reduced from 7.92 to 7.64 km. The detectability after firing in smoke has been reduced: from 2.98 to 2.86."

 

So 7.64km base

 

camo is -3% (7.64 * .97) = 7.41km

 

CE skill is -10% (7.4108 * .9) = 6.67km

 

So 6.7km fully maxed. If only T7 had access to slot 5 upgrades.

 

It was 6.91km fully maxed before and it goes down by ~200m. That is not much of a buff. I wonder if they will buff it more if it still under performs.

Awesome

Been thinking about re-purchasing the Mahan for the upcoming Operation Dynamo - this concealment buff pretty much seals it.

Thanks. 

This is multiplicative reduction? (as opposed to additive reduction?) 

That helps a lot though. 6.9 was completely unworkable. 6.7... well. You'll be spotted for about 2-3 second more. Its still bad. 

But that's the thing about Mahan, 12 torps, with Benson's firepower at T7? That's generally pretty good. Also the torps are 9.2 range right?

That what happens in game and the values you get from the wiki.

 

In game La Gal\

13.3km base

12.9km with camo

11.4km with CE skill

 

From wiki

13.32km

camo 13.32 * .97 = 12.92km 

CE skill 12% 12.9204 * .88 = 11.37km for the 11.4km in game.

A sorely needed buff, possibly not even enough. She's very unfortunately sandwiched between smaller, stealthier T6's and T8's which have the concealment module. For a ship with the terrible ballistics of the 5in/38 that's a severe handicap.
