Hi

 

So in current versions, game shows same detection icon whether ur ship getting detected by radar or by sonar. There shud be separate icons for them , so that DD player in danger can make a better decision , cuz many times ship which has activated this type of consumable is hiding behind an island & thus dd player is unable to judge whether its sonar or just a short duration radar.

 

Thnx

You could look at the enemy team line up first during loading or before match start and see whether there are radar ships or not.

 

  Many time there r ships of both kinds having either sonar or radar OR maybe both (yep british CL).

Well, you have to double check your position. As for RN CLs only T8-10 can got it but even so, they most teamup with some kind of destroyer. So lookout for those.

 

I think current hydro/radar is okay, but its nice to get a different symbols for it.

Radar can through island and can detect in the smoke but it can't detect torpedo(radar will allow at tier 8, USS and HMS 8.4-9.5, +0.5km Per tier and 30-40second, +5 sec for active per tier for USSR has longer but active shorter fix 11.7km 20sec and 25sec for Moskva)

Hydro can detect in the smoke too and can detect torpedo but it can't through island(German are farest and active longest(122,5.88km) but other nations 100-120,4.8-5.2km)

Symbol detected is same picture
