List of consumables
Damage control party
Immediately repairs all damaged modules, holes in the hull and extinguish all fires.
Most important consumable. However, it should be used wisely as reloading it takes 90 seconds. You shouldn't waste repair for one or two damaged modules. Only exceptions are the engine and steering wheel which, if destroyed, makes you helpless. Second case when you should use the repair as quickly as possible is the fire. However, you should wait until you receive all enemy bullets as immediately after extinguishing a fire you can be set on fire again.
For 28 seconds, it replenishes a constant, usually smart amount of hit points every second. Repair party is available only for the battleships.
This item should be used as fast and as often as possible. The only thing you should remember is for your health to be not higher than 4/5 when you use the repair party. If you will have more hit points, then you will simply not fully use the repair and waste part of it.
Creates a cloud of smoke which hides you from enemy sight. It makes it impossible to hit you. The item is available only for destroyers.
Smoke generator should be used mostly for tactical retreat, after releasing torpedoes or when enemy has advantage in numbers. You must remember that it is possible to sail from the cloud and lose the protection. Also, it doesn't work on close distance.
Increases engine maximum power for 120 seconds, thus accelerating the warship. The item is available only for the destroyers.
Similarly to the smoke generator, the engine boost should be used mostly for quickly changing position on the map and running away. A good idea is to use this item, quickly sail towards the key point of the map, shoot all the available torpedoes, and escape immediately.
Increases the range of detecting enemy torpedoes and ships for 40 seconds, including the ones hidden behind a smoke cloud.
This item should be used in two situations. First, when you get very close to enemy smoke cloud, and second, when you're getting close to a narrow passage between islands and you're not sure whether the enemy destroyers have released torpedoes towards you.
