Unit experience and Arty upgrades for ships

#1 Post by SGTscuba » Mar 16 2008

What benefits does it bring.

I have 12 balares frigates and they seem to be kicking ass faster than 12 non exped ones. They have roughly 550xp each and so does it make them fire faster or something?

Also, will ships with indirect attack (like iowa) be able to benefit from arty upgrades aswell in 2020?

Think of exp as a stat multiplier

Definately makes them fire faster,Id even say hit harder,and it has sub effects that compound its bonuses.
For instance ,the more a unit fires , the more its morale raises,which also increases fire rate.

There was a very funny design flaw that affected some high initiative units in which these bonuses combined, turned units (like certian mortar units )into killing machines that litterly buried enemy units in shells ,by allowing said units to break the soft caps in perfomance catagories (like fire rate).
They could have their fire rate upped to like 10X their normal fire rate.

Cant help here.Only devs can say what "will be ,or wont be" in sr2020.
And even than ,take whatever they saw as "it could change at any moment " :P
But i dont see why they wouldnt have it, since it was in sr2010 (with only minor issues)

So arty upgrades affect ships currently in 2010 as long as they have indirect fire thingy icon?

oops.I "think" I misread that question.

Your asking if range enhancer artillary techs work for ships that use indirect fire ?

Which off the top of me head i dont rightly remember the answer to.Ill try and remember to check when i get home from the shop.

Not all the artillary upgrade techs are range bonus oriented though.Im pretty sure some are reguired techs for units.

Like rail gun tech, which IF i remember correctly is required for the DDX.

Found a thread that answers the question:

Cool! By my calculations an Iowa class with all the upgrades can sit in dock at Norfolk and bombard England! :P
