This is a searchlight used to illuminate ships at night battle.
While this can assist other friendly ships in attacking the enemy at night battle, the enemy may focus their fire on the user.
This can be used aboard destroyers, light, heavy, and aviation cruisers, seaplane tenders or other related ships.
Unbuildable. Stock equipment of Jintsuu Kai Ni, Kirishima Kai Ni, Ayanami Kai Ni, Sendai Kai Ni, Yamashiro Kai Ni, Furutaka Kai Ni, Choukai Kai Ni, Akatsuki Kai Ni and Kako Kai Ni. Can be upgraded to Type 96 150cm Searchlight through Akashi's Improvement Arsenal. Quest reward from A53. Provides the following effects when a ship equipped with this enters a night battle with more than 2 HP:
- Night battle attack accuracy of your fleet increases.
- Cut-in rate of your fleet increases.
- Cut-in rate of enemy fleets decreases.
- Ships equipped with searchlights are aimed at more often.
- Ships equipped with searchlights are hit more often.
Can NOT be equipped on Training Cruisers (i.e. Katori).
Recommended to equip on ship in Flagship Position since flagships are targeted less often and your flag will always open fire first, therefore increasing the effectiveness of this equipment.
