It may be a great news to some,..that we have 12 Playable boats in the game, unlike the 10 promissed earlier by the Development team.

The latest news for me.. the U-Flak,..that TypeVII full of anti aircraft flaks..

Here's proof.

Well, since these pictures are taken from the official SH3 website and have been posted weeks/months ago I wouldn't actually call it surprising. Or news. Or anything worth a new topic.

Still, nice they are included, although I'd certainly decline to command one of these deathtraps.

A real captain fears not the vessel but the lose of.....

Couldn't This just be a Add-on to your ship and not a new boat. The dev team said you can upgrade your ship. Whats saying this isn't upgraded with AA armament?

And from the list below, not only all of the boats featured are available but all that equipment as well. They include:

-Seven types of conning towers for the Type VII.
-Three types of conning towers for the Type IX.
-No less then ten (10) different torpeadoes, including three (3) regualar (straight running),four (4) pattern running,
and three (3) acoustic.
-Three (3) types of 3.7cm Flak guns.
-Five (5) types of 2cm Flak guns.
-Five (5) types of hydrophones & sonar.
-Five (5) types of U-Boat Radar.
-Four (4) types of Radar warning devices.
-Five (5) types of Counter mesures (BOLD)

-And maybe more...

Skrelnick, the Flak-U-Boote in fact weren't new boats at all, but merely Type VIIs with new conning tower design and increased AA weaponry.

And yes, you certainly will be able to outfit your boat like this during the campaign if you feel like it (and have the renown points to spend).
