(only available for ships and submarines).


Separated into 3 sections:




Lists damage/flooding severity, speed/turn rates, efficiency and number of damage control parties.


COUNTERFLOOD Toggle: If ON, LEFT CLICK on a compartment within the ship’s hull will flood it with water. Can be used to help balance a ship that has flooding due to damage.


Counterflooding too many compartments will scuttle a ship!


AUTO DC Toggle: If ON, damage control parties will automatically repair the ship (including counterflooding!). Automatic damage control is deactivated when counterflooding compartments.

Grid displaying watertight compartments within the hull. Icons indicate whether a compartment contains a particular subsystem.




Below the Hull View is the Deck View. Icons display the various subsystems present above the hull. LEFT CLICK on a subsystem will assign a damage control party to it.


Subsystems on or above the deck cannot flood.


LEFT CLICK on a compartment will assign an available damage control party to it or if the COUNTERFLOOD toggle is on, flood it with water.




The current Efficiency level of a ship is listed under Status.


– Decreases repair/reload times and solution calculations.


– Decreased by 2% for each offline, flooded or burning compartment.


– Decreased by 15% if the command centre is offline or destroyed, namely the Bridge or Control Room for submarines.






A penalty is applied to time to extinguishing fires and increases fire spread chance.


– Carrier performing Air Operations: 160%


– Cargo on board:

Troops (120%)

Supplies (130%)

Engineering (140%)

Fuel (180%)


During a Dynamic Campaign, a carrier on cooldown after launching or landing aircraft is considered to be performing Air Operations.


If present, the vulnerable penalty is displayed at bottom of the Status section.


In the example shown here, an oiler carrying fuel requires 180% of the time to extinguish fires and fires have a 180% chance to spread.


When present, mouse over the Vulnerable text to display the cause of the penalty, in this example it would display “Fuel”.




Mouse over a compartment or region to display additional information:


The name of the compartment or region.


Repair time and an icon to indicate if a damage control party is present.
