DCS Reference: Ships, WWII

All these ships require the WWII Assets Pack. All are optically guided and do not create any kind of firing indication beyond flashes and (minimal) barrel smoke that has to be spotted visually. Since these systems come in a DRM:ed expansion, the data files are encrypted and cannot be mined to the same detail as the base game systems.

The weapon systems are approximations based on what is known to be available and defined in the game, what the in-game models show, correlated with what the historical information suggests.
