The Reinforcement Expansion is an item added in the August 10th 2015 update along with the Summer Event. Having the item allows you to reinforce a ship to permanently add an additional consumable equipment slot.
The reinforcement will remain after a remodel. This means you can equip a ship with valuable equipment like Damecons without compromising the main equipment.Currently, the Reinforcement Expansion is available as an event map reward, as a quest reward from B90 , B103 and B104 or through the Shop for 500 DMM points.
- Your Kanmusu's level must be at least Level 30 to install the Reinforcement Expansion.
To use the Reinforcement Expansion:
- Go into the equipment menu
- Select the ship you wish to add a slot to
- Mouse over the portrait at the right to the Kanmusu's name label but not the "remodeled" word: 改/改二/甲/zwei/drei/etc. You should see some words appearing in the portrait when you have done it right. Once those words appear, left click.
- Confirm with the left button (cancel with the right)
- The extra slot will appear over the portrait
- When properly equipped and when the flagship is heavily damaged during a sortie, the following screenshot is presented. In this case, it's with the Emergency Repair Goddess.
This additional slot can be used for certain consumables:
- Emergency Repair Personnel and Emergency Repair Goddess
- Combat Provisions and Canned Mackerel
- Underway Replenishment (Fleet oilers only)
The slot can also be used for certain equipment, including:
- Anti-aircraft machine guns and rocket launchers.
- Extra armor (size that can be equipped dependent on the ship type).
- Turbines (Improved Kanhon Type Turbine is the only one available).
- 8cm High-angle Gun and 8cm High-angle Gun Kai + Additional Machine Guns on a select few ships.
- 10cm Twin High-angle Gun Mount (Carriage) and 10cm Twin High-angle Gun Mount Kai + Additional Machine Guns on a select few ships.
