    JP

    Today, on the last day of the Heisei era, we used the remaining time for a live update of the KanColle servers. We're now going to post the patch notes.
    01▼ Pre-release of a new main battery series
    The new main battery series that was pre-released today will display its full potential when equipped by a certain USN battleship that's going to be released soon.

    平成最後の日、本日【4/30(祝)】、平成の残り少ない時間でサーバ群を止めない形で実施した「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群メンテナンスに伴うプチアップデート情報をお知らせしていきます。
    01▼新主砲群の先行実装
    先行実装された新主砲群は、今後実装予定の米国主力戦艦でその真価を発揮します。

    JP

    02▼ Pre-release of a "Suisei" dive bomber with a special armament
    Today we're implementing the new equipment "Suisei Model 12 (w/ Type 31 Photoelectric Fuze Bombs)". This equipment is said to have been used by the "Fuyō Squadron" that fought tenaciously by going in head first... While limited in scope, it is capable of participating in night attacks.

    02▼特殊兵装を運用する「彗星」艦爆の先行実装
    本日、新装備【彗星一ニ型(三一号光電管爆弾搭載機)】を先行実装します。最後まで、正攻法で粘り強く戦った、あの「芙蓉部隊」も積極運用したと伝えられる本装備…限定的はありますが、夜間攻撃も可能です。

    JP

    03▼ Expansion of Night Attacks
    With the addition of "Suisei Model 12 (w/ Type 31 Photoelectric Fuze Bombs) we're also expanding the number of possible night attacks that can be triggered under certain conditions. Furthermore, we're also adding a night cut-in attack that uses this plane.

    03▼夜間攻撃の拡張
    本日先行実装した「彗星一ニ型(三一号光電管爆弾搭載機)」含めて、特定の条件下において夜間攻撃が拡張されます。また、本機を用いた夜間攻撃カットインも追加実装されます。

    JP

    04▼ Furniture Shop Inventory Update
    The furniture shop's inventory has been updated and is now featuring May- and Satsuki-themed items. Furthermore, since today is the turning point for a new era, we're also giving all of you a special and limited "'Reiwa' Wall Scroll".
    Thank you, Heisei! And welcome, Reiwa!

    04▼家具屋さんのお品書きの更新
    【家具屋さんのお品書き】が更新され、五月、皐月の季節家具などの取り扱いが開始されます。また、特別家具【「令和」の掛け軸】を限定実装、この時代の節目に、全ての提督方にお贈りします。
    ありがとう、平成!よろしくお願いします、令和!

    JP

    05▼ Anti-Air Cut-In Bug Fix
    We fixed a bug that caused Hyūga K2 not to trigger an anti-air cut-in even when fulfilling its requirements. To all the Hyūga K2 admirals out there, we're terribly sorry. You can now rely on her anti-air equipment again!

    05▼対空カットイン不具合の修正
    「日向改二」において、仕様を満たしている時に正しく対空カットイン射撃ができない場合がある不具合を修正しました。「日向改二」提督の皆さん、大変申し訳ない、安心して対空兵装山盛りでの出撃、よろしくお願い致します!

      If you look closely, those 16 inch guns are twin guns which was equipped on Colorado class BBs.  Nelson class had three triple barrel 16 inch guns.  Fairy is eating either a hamburger or hot dog with her coffee.

      Additionally the in the equipment description it says it was used by the Colorado class that was part of the Big Seven and the fairy is holding a burger, coffee and a hotdog. This all implies American BB. So will see either 1. USS Colardo 2. USS Maryland 3. West Virginia. I would say USS Washington is unlikely since it wasn't completed and destroyed during target pratice before WW2

      My best guess is that between the descriptions stating those guns were used on the Colorado-Class and the fact that for the MKI and MKV versions specificlaly mention 'sisters that were defeated at Pearl harbor' strongly imply either Maryland or West Virgina.

      ...taking this a little farther, the West Virgina was actually sunk at Pearl Harbor (she got better though), while the Maryland  took minor damage. (wikipedia says she got by relativly unscathed) and the Colorado was nowhere near Pearl Harbor at the time of the attack.

      This leads me to believe that the new girl is going to either be Maryland or West Virgina...though I'm strongly leaning towards West Virgina right now.

    • West Virginia would be the most interesting one, if only for her refit. After Pearl Harbor she was refloated and rebuilt extensively, and was fitted with modern (for the time) radars and fire control systems. A Kai Ni her sisters never got. That might mean some nice stats in-game and neat special attack involving radar-corrected fire.

      Anyway, whichever sister it's gonna be, her fairy is cute. I want Americnan Mutsu.

    • The new American Big Seven seems to like coffee, her fairy holds a cup in every equipment picture. Could that be a reference…?

      Also Mutsu fairy with USN clothes, how cute!

      I would have to disagree on it being West Virginia.  The descriptions heavily mention Colorado a lot as the nameship and the fairy for the MK 8 is paired with Mutsu.  Which indicates more Maryland.  However it should be noted that Colorado was the second Battleship of the class to be completed which is why most non-American powers called it the Maryland class.  Before Japan pleaded for Mutsu's case all Colorado class but Maryland were going to be scrapped.  So it could be that Colorado herself is Mutsu like.  Alternatively it's Maryland.  That said West Virginia is always a possibility.  KC is no stranger at giving ships remodels only their sisters recieved anyway.  The existence of the Mk. 8 makes it seem like the Colorado class ship already has a kai 2(or rather MK II) planned in the future.  If we are lucky maybe she will even have the K2 form upon implementation if the devs are feeling generous.

    • I hope the plane is a reward this event. Those Suzuya and Kumano fairies are delightful. I want the gun with the cosplay Mutsu fairy as well, but judging by the stats, it's going to cost a lot of Screws when it eventually becomes available via Akashi. Bleh.

      It won't cost as much as the Iowa gun.

    • I am hoping for Maryland, simply because you can shorten her nicely to just Mary.

      That being said, with all the Big 7 coming out Iowa needs an Update, she only has slightly more Firepower than Nelson while her actual real life shells have the same penetrational power as Yamato's. (Obviously not the same explosive power, since smaller)

      I'm really just going off of the Google-Translated text for the MKI and MKV guns; they state that those were specifically for the Colorado-Class and that 'the sisters were defeated at Pearl Harbor' and then following up with a mention that they got some upgrades and rejoined the fight combined with the information on the Colorado-Class as a whole on Wikipedia as a guide for my speculaton.

      The fact that the flavor-text just says 'Colorado-Class' tells me that the devs are probably pulling their information from US-sources (maybe even just Wikipedia like me XD) as opposed to other sources (as you mentioned). 

      This all being said, I'm speculating that the new girl will either be West Virgina or Maryland because both check all the blocks; both are members of the Big Seven, both are Colorado-class, both were at Pearl Harbor and both were damaged in that attack (though West Virgina got the worst of it).

      Now, even though I'm putting my money on West Virgina because she got the worst of the two at Pearl Harbor, I *want* Maryland because that's where I live (I'm originally from Ohio, but 've given up on seeing any Ohio-Class anything in this game XD)

      ...as I type this, I can't help but want all of the Big Seven to be implemented and for there to be some sort of super-epic CI if you have them all in the same fleet...because that would be just f**king amazing!

      Mutsu being there instead of Nagato imho suggests it's Maryland. 

      But yeah, the question is how accurate the CG even is. I think you are right about it being the rear turret, but if you take a close look, at your picture the blue part isn't supposed to be all the way to the back either.

    • Mutsu being there instead of Nagato imho suggests it's Maryland. 

      But yeah, the question is how accurate the CG even is. I think you are right about it being the rear turret, but if you take a close look, at your picture the blue part isn't supposed to be all the way to the back either.  

      Actually I have seen many Japanese say Mutsu being there indicates it's Colorado.  Colorado and Mutsu were to be scrapped leaving only Maryland and Nagato to be the only 16 inch battleships in the world.  Then Japan pleaded for Mutsu's case and the rest is history.  So basically Colorado has Japan pleading for Mutsu's existence to thank for her finishing construction.  Note this is the point of view of some Japanese comments I've read not mine.

      Well, the Mark VIII cgi is clearly turret 3 of the USS Colorado - each sister had different camo painting and that one has tell-tale lines of Colorado pattern.

      But.

      The problem is with Mark V cgi which has the same pattern. And it shouldn't because Colorado turret 3 didn't really have straight roof. She had catapult there since late 1920s that was replaced with AA platforms in early 1942.

      So only thing we can say for sure is that artist used Colorado turret 3 as a reference for artwork, but also took some liberties with that.

      It  depends on how accurate the CG is, because that's not exactly Colorado's camo either. The Blue part on Colorado's camo doesn't gfo all the way to the back while it does on the CG. It's a minor difference btu still there. TbH it looks like a mix of Maryland's and Colorado's as the paint on Maryland's third turret actualyl extends that far back. However, it also has larger blue painted parts. 


      And if that is any concern for Tanaka at all, Maryland would also be easier on the VAs as they can just refer to her as Mary.

      My guess, based on how this discussion has unfolded, is that the artist used the Colorado turrets as a baseline/example because this is for the Colorado-Class after all...but the descriptions for the MKI and MKV guns imply that these are not for the Colorado (yet), but rather for Maryland or West Virginia. 

      Again, I think we're getting West Virgina...but Maryland also has a case here as well. But that's just my speculation based on the information we have right now. Things may change between now and before the event kicks off, with leaked information from Comptiq or some other source.

      You mean mk V and mk. VIII.  Mark I is the gun they started with.  They all recieved the MK. 5 and mk 8 during the war.  Kinda surprised Tanaka even bothered with seperating them since mk. 5 and mk. 8 had the same performance.

    • Also some of the Japanese are complaining that the devs should change the name of the American guns to arabic numerals.  It's confusing for them that they are using roman numerals like the british gun and not arabic like Iowa's gun.

    • I wonder who the artist is gonna be for the new Ship. Virtually all ships from other nations have had their own designated artist. Konishi has done all the British ships, Jiji handles Italian ships, Fumikane does all the German ships and Yadokari handles Soviet ships. Only Japan and the USA have had multiple artists attached. I imagine Zeco might have been hire to become the official handler of the US navy but the way crown on the fairy's head makes me wonder. I think Shizuma might be making another US ship. Which is fine with me.

      Could Konishi be attached to her? I mean, for second, I thought she was one of Nelson's or Warspite's sister ships.

    • I know both European powers and Japan called it the Maryland class.  This is because Newport News finished their Colorados(Maryland, West Virginia) faster than the New York ship building corporation finished theirs(Colorado, uncompleted Washington).   This is most likely why the US Navy chose West Virginia over Washington to keep(there is no official reason we have been able to find but this is probably one of the big factors).

      My understanding is that West Virginia was complete (or mostly complete) while Washington was not. Further, apprently the Japanese made a strong case to keep Mutsu with regard to the Washington Naval Treaty, becuase otherwise they would have had to get rid of her...and the US would have only been able to keep Colorado.

    • My best guess for the identity is a toss between Colorado and Country Roads-

      I checked the Pit-Road scale kits for all three of the Colorado-class, and Maryland didn't receive 20 mm gun tubs on turret three while the other two did.

      As stated though in a previous post, the camo pattern makes it hard to discern who among the two of them since it's not in any dazzle pattern that Colorado and Wee Vee had worn in 1944 (but look like Measure 1 instead, which was worn by TF1/Battleship Row on Dec. 7.)

      That would be wrong.  Washington was launched in September 1921.  West Virginia was launched in November 1921.  At time of being Struck Washington was 75.5% complete.  West Virginia at the time when she was launced was 65% complete.  According to https://www.usswestvirginia.org/uss_west_virginia_history.htm

      Take not Washington was struck on February 8, 1922.

      While West Virginia might have caught up to her unlucky sister I doubt she was anymore complete especially considering her commissioning wouldn't be until the following year inn December 1923.  Most likely they were in a similar state of completeness at the time of the Washington Naval treaty but it was clear that Newport News was the better shipyard at completing this battleship class faster.  Note that Colorado(built at the same shipyard as Washington) herself wasn't complete until August of 1923.  Perhaps New York ship building corporation could only build one BB at a time efficiently.  In any case it was clear who was better at building ships rapidly.

    • Also only Maryland and Nagato were going to be kept origininally.  It's less that Japan made a good case and more that they had to make a deal for the school children who donated for Mutsu.  Unless they wanted their money to go to waste.

When can we get the Big Seven cut in combo? like having 3 Big Seven ships from different class will triggered there own combo in one sortie different to "Nelson Touch" and Nagato's "Full Broadside Attack" insted of only flagship will trigger they will do it simultaneously?

      I want them to add a ultimate meme combo.

    • Tanaka decided to have someone who has never done a battleship, draw one.  I'm surprised Akira got booted out.  Now I feel the most likely are Drew and Fujikawa.  I guess Parseri, Bob, and even ones who haven't really drawn for KanColle since forever have had their chances increase too.  Souta was also contacted by the Devs recently for Zuipara drawings too.
