Hello,

 

What happened to the sonar on Cleveland ?! As far as I can remember Omaha it's predecessor did have sonar ?!

 

Is the missing sonar a bug or something ?

 

Weird !

 

Bye,

  Skybuck =D

I'm not at home so I can't check, but I think you can choose between sonar and the defensive AA consumable?

According to third party sites, the ship should still have the "hydracoustic search" ability. Sadly, I do not have the Cleveland myself so I cannot check it in-game, but are you sure it's not there if you try to replace defensive fire with something else?

Indeed, didn't know about this. Most ships have nothing to choose from except dabloon costing things.

 

Though the cruisers can now choose.

 

Kinda pisses me off a little bit that I did not know about this sooner.

 

Though perhaps it doesn't matter much... perhaps the plane also functions just like a sonar... and thus could be the reason for the devs to prevail the plane.

 

However if the plane spots torpedoes faster I don't know... perhaps yes.

 

And lastly... the plane can ofcourse be lured away with fighters will sonar cannot.

 

So sonar might be a bit more reliable... thus me slight pissy-niss ! ;) :) =D

Plane can spot torpedoes if is in the path of them (that is, closer to the torps than you are). It's situational at best. I mean, I will launch my plane if I encounter a DD but don't count on it to save you like sonar will. Sonar will also spot through smoke, unlike plane.

I'm considering sonar instead of defensive AA on my Cleveland and my Aoba. But now and then a carrier does come along... I dunno.

I wouldn't say sonar is worth it, It just doesn't have enough range to be useful,  If you're close enough to a stealthed destroyer to detect it on sonar, you're probably already looking at a spread of torpedoes to the face.
