In the course of tracking ship repairs I have had a number of ships undergo refits. Enough for me to suss out a couple of interesting bits of info.

If the ship is due for a refit, the SYS damage must be below (225/Durability)+/- 1.
When the refit is applied, the ship will take SYS damage of (225/Durability) +/- 1, maximum of 13.

The 225 number may not be exactly right, but it is pretty close. It is definitely between 200 and 250. But the formula of (225/Durability) is at least a good rule of thumb.

When DD's take a refit they usually get sys damage in the 20's for me. Same for other small ships.

Allied ships or Japanese? Did they have zero SYS damage before the refit? I said they will take 225/DUR damage, not that they would be raised to 225/DUR damage. An 8 DUR DD with 10 SYS would be elegible for refit and would end up at 23 SYS.

In my experience they only update when less than 5 sys damage. I am talking about ships with 0 sys damage when the upgrade is performed. Allied ships. Probably the SC size ships are almost always in the 20's. DD's certainly get more than 13 sys damage. What you are saying might be true for larger vessels.

Okay, this is strange. In the course of my tracking I've watched more than 40 ships refit, 20 of them DDs or APDs. None gained more than 13 SYS damage and several subs refitted when they repaired down to 8 SYS. Are you playing stock Witpqs?

Whether stock or CHS it didn't seem to make a difference. Maybe it's different under v1.8. I have not played to the point of getting any upgrades since the patch. I'm waiting for RHS CVO to settle down before a start a game to run a while. When I do I'll let you know what I find.

After my last post, I read thru the patch "What's New?" file and nothing about refits or ship repair was mentioned. That's not to say that there wasn't something done that indirectly affected it, but this drastic a change?

Late night thought. Do you have Allied Damage Control turned on, witpqs?

I just had a whole slew of DDs upgrade. dtravel's estimate of up to 13 additional points of sys damage sounds about right +/- a little. Most of those DDs had sys damage about 5 before the upgrade and are all at about 15 - 20 sys damage now.
