  1. Note: You were supposed to get a Emergency Repair Goddess as a reward. If you got 43 12 cm guns; it's a BUG!1 Or more precisely, they mistakenly assigned the equipment ID to equipment quantity. They've fixed it and are going to compensate those who'd already cleared the quest.

    ID 1: 12cm Single Gun Mount
    ID 43: Emergency Repair Goddess
    They fucked up and coded "43xID1" instead of "1xID43"
  2. Note 2: Affected players receive the Emergency Repair Goddess on start-up. If you haven't got it yet, reload the game.
