Surveillance Radar Data
Available for British, American, and Russian cruisers, as well as Pan-Asian destroyers starting from Tier VIII and upwards. British and American cruisers have longer lasting duration, while Russian cruisers have longer detection range. Pan-Asian destroyer radar is of very short duration, but does extend past their typical detection radii.
This consumable is excellent for hunting down destroyers, as it instantly reveals all enemy ships within the radar's specified radius, regardless of any obstacles such as smoke screens or islands. Additionally, it can extend view range in cyclones. For example, the American Tier VIII cruiser Baltimore can see enemy ships at 10.00 km during a cyclone, giving her a 1.0 km advantage. Note that this will only work for radars with a range of more than 8.0 km (as cyclones hard cap visibility range at 8.0 km). While active during a cyclone, Surveillance Radar will extend a ship's visibility range out to match the ship's radar range for the duration of the radar consumable. This allows radar-equipped ships to potentially fire their main battery undetected for a time.
While this consumable can detect ships, be wary to not confuse it with Hydroacoustic Search (), which can detect both torpedoes as well as ships. Surveillance Radar will only detect enemy ships.
For some American cruisers, this consumable can be exchanged with Catapult Fighter () or Spotting Aircraft () or either.
For British cruisers at tier VIII and above, this consumable can be be exchanged with Smoke Generator (), Catapult Fighter () or Spotting Aircraft ().
For Pan Asian destroyers, this consumable can be exchanged with Smoke Generator () at tier VIII and above.
Unlike other Pan Asian destroyers, premium destroyer Loyang does not have access to Surveillance Radar.
As of 0.8.0, Missouri is the only battleship in the game that has this consumable.
