Hi all!

Thought I'd compile a list of ships that currently carry ASW capabilities (depth charges and/or depth charge airstrike plane) along with some of their associated stats. Might be handy as a reference when subs are added to Ranked in 10.7.

 

Ship-based depth charges data:

Spoiler

Format: no. of launchers (groups) x no. of charges per launcher @ alpha damage | flooding chance

Launchers reload in 40 seconds and sink to a depth of -80 meters unless specified otherwise.

Do note that as this data was sourced from the PTS, it's liable to change. I'll try and update it again when 10.7 hits.

Can you verify Atlanta and Atlanta B are different and not a typo?

Who knows.

Played several games Thursday night and saw Vermont at least had one.

Thanks for assembling and this list is appreciated. I note the absence of a few ships, for example, the Des Moines and Salem, and the various SuperCruisers (Alaska, Azuma, Yoshino, et al). Will these have any ASW at all? I read somewhere (which I do not now recall) that the Petro would not have any ASW but the Smolensk also would not. I see that the Petro is not listed above, but the Smolensk is.

Oh, and this list is missing the Makarov as I think at least a couple of people have that ship.....

As near as I can tell, all CAs and supercruisers are completely defenseless against subs.  Well, not quite.  I played a CA for one game on the PTS and killed a sub by ramming him.

...and looks like DD DC damage is about 1.5x that of same-nation cruisers.  I'm pretty sure US DDs and cruisers (the very few that had DC capability) used the same charges, so this is maybe to represent that DDs were more effective ASW platforms than cruisers?

And here's the reason for the rocket change. Not game balance or "fun and engaging" reasons, just cold hearted practicality........

:cap_horn:I find it baffling that the Shima gets better DC capabilities than the Americans. Also, both Atlanta, and other ASW should be having more than two launchers when they either have the Y-Guns for broadside patterns and Smolensk and Alexander Nevsky Holland Freisland and Smalland included have RBU style forward firing rocket depth charges. ASW ships with RBU style rockets should have a major advantage over traditional Y-Gun and rail equiped ships.

Also, Worcester, and other CLs with catapults shouldn't have depth charges when they had planes that could do the job for them.

Minotaur and Goliath should have the option of equipping homing Torpedoes since they lack the catapults and depth charge rails of other ships. It would add much more flavor and value to different ships in different competitive lineup's.

Meanwhile thanks a thousand fold for this list.

How about Roma and it's sisters? It does look like they carry depth charges launchers...

Why am I not surprised that Smolensk does the highest DC damage of all cruisers?  Hell, it's even higher than some DDs.

I find it amusing that Vampire II and Daring literally have different depth charges... wth.

That could be av gas in quick release jettison racks in case of battle damage such as fire.

Good theory, especially since these things appear to be located right near the catapult.  And once I look at them closely, they don't actually look quite like depth charges, either, though I'm only familiar with USN depth charges, and the Italian equivalents could have had a different look.  Oh, and also the placement along the side on a BB would have really increased the chances of damaging your own ship with them.  There's a reason DC racks were placed on the fantail.  :-)

But bottom line is...I don't KNOW.

Ochakov has the same ASW equipment at T8. I finally have a use for the one I got in a container some time back. It's a pretty good little ASW cruiser, provided it lives long enough to make ASW runs.

I didn't notice dutch cruisers here. Also I played t7 it didn't have G depth charges button

Yeah... I noticed that too.  I'm wondering if that's because WG felt that the Eendracht already has the airstrike (4 key) available. However, I would expect that the airstrike would only really be effective on the surface since they are HE BOMBS, and not DEPTH charges.  I was not able to try it on any subs since they were sunk before they were in range. I also played the tier 6 Kijkduin and it also only has the airstrike attack option.
