File Name: Corrected Depth Charge Projector 1.0 (271.8 KB) Download

Description
What it does
------------
This tiny mod replaces the non-functional K-gun depth charge projectors mounted on various destroyers, destroyer escorts, sloops and corvettes with working K-gun Mark 9 projectors. Additional, this mod corrects the anti aircraft gun equipment of these ships to resemble historically accurate configurations.

Because of the discussion started here http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=192182 I thought this mod might be helpful for other subsimmers, too.

Description
----------
In SH5 there are three different types of projectors to deploy depth charges to the sides of a ship. One of them isn't functional, thus lowering the effectiveness of anti-submarine vessels:

- K-gun projector: Mounted on the sides of the ship, delivering the depth charges to either port or starboard. These projectors don't work. The projector is firing, you can hear the noise and see the smoke of the propellant charge, but no depth charge is delivered, no splash is indicating the depth charges impact on the water, no depth charge explosion can be seen or heard. Mounted e. g. on Black Swan class sloop, V&W class destroyers and (early in the war) on American destroyers and destroyer escorts (Fletcher, Buckley, Everts class).

- K-gun projector with Mk 9 depth charges: As above, but with faster sinking depth charges. Works fine. Appearing later in the war, these projectors are mounted on some American ships that were previously equipped with the standard K-guns.

- Y-gun projector: Mounted on the centerline of the ship with the arms of the "Y" pointing outboard, two depth charges are cradled on shuttles inserted into each arm. Works fine. In SH5 you'll find them on Wickes/Town and Clemson class destroyers.

That's the reason why some folks find the projectors working correctly (K-guns Mk 9, 1942/43 onward or Y-gun) and some don't (standard K-gun, 1939-1942). I found the destroyers that are equipped with the faulty K-guns to be less dangerous as they should be, because their projectors are not able to generate the wider dispersal pattern when used in conjunction with rack-deployed charges.

As a temporary solution I replaced each line 'LinkName=KGun' with 'LinkName=KGun_Mk9' in the equipment definition file (.eqp) of the ships concerned. Though the depth charge racks are working, I replaced the 'DCRack' with the 'DCRack_Mk9' respectively, so the racks contain the same type of depth charges.

Ships concerned
----------------
Flower class corvette
Fletcher class destroyer
Soldati class destroyer
V&W class destroyer
Buckley class destroyer escort
Evarts class destroyer escort
Black Swan class sloop

Compatibility
------------
It's compatible with Cerberus62 Historical Ship Equipment 1.3 and TDW's Magnum Opus. Install this mod last. It will overwrite the old equipment definition files of Cerberus62 Historical Ship Equipment 1.3 which is contained in Magnum Opus. Don't know of conflicts with other mods by now.

Install
------
Install with JSGME.

History
-------
1.0 First release.
