But what makes German aircraft carriers so special?

  • Their attack aircraft are equipped with a new type of ammunition—armor-penetrating rockets. When successfully used, these are capable of inflicting heavy damage to enemy citadels. However, they may also ricochet or fail to penetrate armor when hitting a target at an acute angle—in this respect, they function in a similar way to armor-penetrating shells. When striking the thin armor of destroyers at 90-degree angles, they will often overpenetrate and deal 1/10 of the maximum damage.
  • German bombers carry armor-penetrating bombs. A squadron initially flies at high altitude, and an attacking flight can dive without the need to first climb to a higher altitude. As it is quite difficult to adjust the position of the target reticle during an attack, their bombs are most effective when dropped on slower targets.
  • The torpedoes dropped by German aircraft are fast, but have a short range and cause only modest damage.
  • The aircraft have a high cruising speed, but somewhat small HP pool.
  • German carriers are armed with accurate, long-range secondary guns.

Aircraft carriers IV Rhein, VI Weser, VIII August von Parseval, and X Manfred von Richthofen will become available to research in Update 0.9.7.

Directives

The new game event tasks you with completing 28 missions spread across four Directives. The first Directive will become available with the release of Update 0.9.6, while those that follow will be unlocked each week. Completing the missions and Directives will reward you with German Carriers containers, сredits, and signals.

In addition to that, you’ll be able to complete Directives of the Dockyard event that began in Update 0.9.5. They will remain available until August 3.

German Carriers Containers

Players will be able to obtain up to 22 containers for completing Directives and up to three containers from Daily Shipments.

German Carriers containers may drop a combat mission that unlocks Early Access to IV Rhein, VI Weser, and VIII August von Parseval; the “Black, White, Red” expendable camouflages; credits; and other valuable rewards.

A German Carriers container includes:

  • One of the following items: 1,000 Coal; or 1 day of Warships Premium Account; or 8x “Black, White, Red” expendable camouflages; or 2x special signals of the same type (Dragon, Wyvern, Red Dragon, Ouroboros, Hydra, Leviathan, Basilisk, or Scylla); or 15x signals of the same type (Zulu, Papa Papa, India Yankee, Juliet Charlie, November Foxtrot, November Echo Setteseven).
  • A chance to get a special combat mission that will unlock Early Access to a German aircraft carrier.

You can get even more German Carriers containers for completing chains of combat missions that are available on the weekends of the second and third weeks after the release of the Update. The difficulty of the chains, as well as the number of containers that you will receive, depends on your activity during the previous updates. The more you play, the more German Carriers containers you can obtain.

The chains are not available to players who haven’t logged in to World of Warships for more than 180 days prior to the date the combat missions become available.

The Armory offers German Carriers Premium containers for doubloons. These carry a greater number of rewards.

German Carriers Premium containers include:

  • 8x “Black, White, Red” expendable camouflages.
  • 10x special signals of the same type (Dragon, Wyvern, Red Dragon, Ouroboros, Hydra, Leviathan, Basilisk, or Scylla), or 10x “Black, White, Red” expendable camouflages.
  • One of the following items: 2,000 Coal; or 1 day of Warships Premium Account; or 5,000 Free XP; or 25 signals of the same type (Zulu, Papa Papa, India Yankee, Juliet Charlie, November Foxtrot, November Echo Setteseven).
  • A chance to get a special combat mission that will unlock Early Access to a German aircraft carrier.

How to Earn German Tokens

Throughout Update 0.9.6, four chains of combat missions will be available to players. For each completed task, you will receive German Tokens. The final rewards of the three chains are even more German Tokens, as well as the Iron Cross permanent camouflage for IV Rhein, VI Weser, and VIII August von Parseval. The final missions of these chains must be completed playing the corresponding aircraft carriers: Rhein, Weser, or August von Parseval. The last mission in the fourth chain can be completed playing VIII Graf Zeppelin or VIII Graf Zeppelin B.

Thus, if you don’t have the aircraft carriers required to complete the chains, you can earn up to 300 German Tokens. If you have obtained all the German aircraft carriers in Early Access, and you have VIII Graf Zeppelin or VIII Graf Zeppelin B, then you can receive up to 600 German Tokens, as well as three Iron Cross permanent camouflages for IV Rhein, VI Weser, and VIII August von Parseval.

Bundles with chains of combat missions for German battleships, cruisers, and destroyers are also available in the Armory in exchange for doubloons. You can get up to 1,800 German Tokens for completing these chains.

You can get an additional 600 Tokens from special bundles in the Premium Shop.

Rewards for Tokens in the Armory


Daily Shipments

During Update 0.9.6, enter the game in the period between July 9 and 23, inclusive, to start getting valuable rewards from the Daily Shipments section.

You can get a total of 10 rewards, while the shipments are available for 14 days. Thus, you can skip 4 days out of 2 weeks and still claim all the valuable rewards.
