Ascend with Ashitaka

Ashitaka... The Love Hawk. No one knows for sure why such name was given to the sacred mountain sitting alongside the renowned Mount Fuji.
Then what would a foreign alien species from the future imagine upon discovering a lost warship with the name such as this?
Would they imagine the ship to soar like a hawk? What would the word "love" in its name depict? The bewilderment and confusion of the aliens can be seen portrayed on the reincarnated warship's architecture.
It seems, however, that the foreign species at least understood the concept of "love"; as its characters are portrayed on the hull, white as a virgin snow.

Ashitaka is a typical Japanese battleship, heavily armed with several 410-mm guns. Thanks to the guns’ long range, Ashitaka is great at artillery duels with enemy cruisers and battleships at long to medium distance. In close quarters, the 140-mm guns of the secondary armament pose quite a threat to the lighter ships.

Ship’s maximum speed is 30 knots, which is one of the best at her level. However, what she gains in speed, she lacks in AA-defense.

  • Powerful 10-gun 410-mm artillery
  • Great maximum speed for the class - 30 knots
  • Solid secondary armament that includes 140-mm AP weaponry
  • Increased credit income, and +50% XP earned per battle, thanks to her permanent camouflage

A special Makoto Kobayashi inspired camouflage will sweeten the deal for those, who get the bundle.

This camouflage has the following bonuses:

  • -3% to detectability range.
  • +4% to maximum dispersion of shells fired by the enemy at your ship.
  • +100% to experience earned in the battle.
  • +20% to credits earned in the battle
  • -50% to the cost of ship's post-battle service.

Update 0.6.14


A new Update is now live! Take a look at the highlights to learn more about what's new. Check the game's official website for a full list of changes: https://worldofwarships.com/news/common/update-0614/.

Pan-Asian Destroyers
Update 0.6.14 brings a new line of Pan-Asian ships, with one Tier I cruiser and nine destroyers. The new line also carries a new type of weapon: Deepwater Torpedoes. These explosive fish are hard to spot and dangerous, with their small detection radius and increased chances of flooding an enemy ship—perfect for facing off against enemy cruisers and battleships. However, this advantage comes at a price—the new torpedoes cannot hit other destroyers.
You’ll also be able to deploy a unique "Smoke Generator" consumable with unconventional stats, which should come in handy when facing enemy destroyers. It provides efficient cover with a short cooldown time, extended deployment time, and a shorter smoke duration, perfect for retreating after an unfortunate encounter or when laying down a massive barrage on enemy ships.

New Operation
Go boldly and put your skills to the test in the new "The Ultimate Frontier" Operation.
As the battlefront closes in, a research project on the Rouen Atoll falls under threat of persistent air strikes. A group of transport aircraft speed to Rouen with a mission to evacuate all personnel and documentation to avoid a catastrophe.
A two-phase operation in which you escort the transport aircraft to the aerodrome while destroying enemy ships posing any danger to them. Once that task is complete, you will have to hold the aerodrome, preventing its destruction, until the evacuation is over.

General Changes to Aircraft Carriers
We increased the action time for the "Damage Control Party" consumable from 5 to 30 seconds, with the probability of catching fire from HE shells now corresponding with the stock hulls of Tier VI carriers for all aircraft carriers in the game.
By introducing this change, we aim to reduce the priority of a distracting hunt for other carriers. In addition, the extended action time of the "Damage Control Party" will allow several squadrons to take off even under a shower of high-explosive shells, though the chance of fire when the consumable is on a cooldown increases.

US Aircraft Carriers: Changes to Flight Control
Update 0.6.14 brings balance changes to US carriers—now each ship has only one Flight Control module available.
Each carrier retains their unique six-aircraft squadrons and carries at least one of each of the following strike groups: fighters, dive bombers and torpedo bombers. With these changes, we want to increase the versatility of U.S. carriers while preserving their specific gameplay features.
High-tier carriers Lexington, Essex and Midway (Tiers VIII–X) will be able to equip their squadrons with AP bombs. Now, you’ll be able to try out a type of weapon that was once only available to specific Premium carriers.

Follow-Up Tweaks to Upgrade Slots
We changed the arrangement of upgrades in the corresponding slots. Now, each slot houses an upgrade more expensive than the one placed in the immediately preceding slot.
