Does V-stab & GLD help with accuracy? in Core Skills & Mechanics Discussion Posted June 15, 2016 On 6/14/2016 at 9:27 AM, BlackAdder said: VSTAB doesn't reduce aim time, it reduces (aiming) circle, on turd tanks E100/IS3/IS7/WZ111... i use both to maximize gun handling. I feel like vents is worse on those kinds of tanks. By reducing the maximum bloom, VSTAB reduces the amount of time it takes to reach peak accuracy when you take away the source of bloom. Using the ST-I as the example again, at full speed the dispersion factor is 10 (0.25*40kmh), when you stop it takes 3.3*LN(10) seconds to reach peak accuracy (about 7.59s). If you mount a vertical stabiliser the dispersion factor is 8 (0.25*0.8*40), when you stop it takes 3.3*LN(8) seconds to reach peak accuracy (about 6.86s) If you had a GLD instead the dispersion factor would be 10 and it would take 2.97*LN(10) to reach peak accuracy on stopping (about 6.83s).
