  • Slow torpedoes

Research

Researchable upgrades for Gustav-Julius Maerker is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for a larger health pool, improved maneuverability, and especially better AA. Research of this module unlocks progress toward IX Felix Schultz.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to FKS Typ 8 Mod.2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Recommended upgrades for Gustav-Julius Maerker:

Because of the lack of hydro-acoustic search capability, and if primarily firing at range, a Torpedo Lookout System to a base value of 1.8 km. might prove more useful. Also consider Steering Gears Modification 2 : -40% rudder shift time. / -80% repair time..
