    • Shell magazines explode when destroyed, causing the destruction of the naval vessel. All shells that are stored separately have ~11% chance of detonation from instant strong explosion damage. 
    • First stage shell stowage and fuse storages may ignite causing damage to their turret, and may initiate a fire in the whole vessel.  
    • Auxiliary guns shell storage and depth charge/bomb storage may ignite causing severe damage to surrounding compartments and modules, but this fire is not lethal to the naval vessel. 
    • First stage stowage shells can not destroy the vessel when damaged, but disable their turret.

For small boats it is therefore dangerous to be hit from 100mm calibre and higher HE shells.
