New mechanic: Anti-ship missiles

The first missile destroyer, Hamburg (Rank V), equipped with four MM38 Exocet missile launchers, will soon be available to players.

To utilize this formidable weapon, you must aim it at an enemy ship, lock onto the target, and fire! The missiles, featuring homing heads, will then track the target until impact. It is important to consider the position of your ship and the target for a successful hit. If there is an obstacle in the path of the missiles (e.g., an island) or the target is too close, the missiles won’t reach the enemy ship due to their specific trajectory.

The German destroyer Hamburg comes equipped with anti-missile defense countermeasures. When enemy missiles approach, deploy decoys to divert the missiles away from your ship. Note that decoys burn up and dissipate quickly, so it’s crucial to choose the right moment to use them.

Player Profile

The Player Profile viewing feature has been introduced in test mode. The feature is under development and will be improved and supplemented, including data on awards and achievements, player statistics and so on.

The "Medal" section in the Profile visually showcases a player's unique achievements. There is currently one type of Medal in the game, awarded for reaching level 14 star in the tank campaign and the level 25 star in the ship campaign.

In the latest update, the 14, 14*, and 14** levels of the tank campaign have been merged into level 14, and the 25, 25*, and 25** levels of the ship campaign have been merged into level 25. Players who have upgraded their star-level vehicles will be awarded a unique medal in their profile, and vehicles will retain their upgrades even after the levels are combined.
  • The vehicle menu has undergone a redesign: the linear bar at the bottom of the hangar has been changed to a separate window, organizing platoons and ships by campaign level, nation and rank.
