The WG42 is a ship-borne rocket launcher developed from another (Germany) country for anti-ground and anti-shipping attacks. It can be used aboard U-boats where it saw practical use. Mainly effective for anti-ground strikes, suffered from poor accuracy; however, it can be fired from a shallow depth similar to the anti-ground submarine missiles of today.
Winter 2015 Event E-3 Hard/Medium clear reward.
Spring 2015 Event E-2 Hard clear reward.
Grants a damage bonus against Installation Type enemies.
For Soft-Skinned Installations, the bonus for one equipped WG42 is +75 to Basic Attack Power (applied after Type 3 Shell's 250% damage bonus, affects both day and night battle), ~110 for two, ~140 for three, and ~160 for four. For example, a non-modernized CAV with 60 total firepower equipped with two Main Guns, WG42, and Type 3 Shell will have (60 * 2.5 + 75) * 1.2 = 270 Pre/Post-Cap Attack Power in normal condition for Double Attack in Night Battle.
Unlike ASW, ships equipped with this are NOT forced to attack an installation-type enemies and will choose randomly as usual. Equipping this also enables submarines to attack installations. Daytime Artillery Spotting and Night Battle special attacks are NOT disabled - a ship with the ability to perform a Night Battle Double Attack for instance will perform the Double Attack; while the WG42 mushroom cloud animation does not play, the damage IS still increased against Installations.
