- When originally introduced on 24 February 2016, this equipment was introduced as a Seaplane Bomber and behaved as such until the 29 February 2016 update.
- In this period, when equipped on Seaplane Tenders, Aviation Cruisers, Aviation Battleships, etc., the ship would attack enemy subs, but when equipped on remodelled Italian Battleships or Cruisers, either alone or alongside a Seaplane Bomber and/or a Type 0 Passive Sonar, these ships would ignore these targets instead.
