The gun stabilizer is a system that improves the tank gun’s aim at the target and preserves (stabilizes) its aim even when the hull vibrates during movement, which allows it to perform effective aimed fire during vehicle movement or when temporarily stopped.
|Reaction time and accuracy between target detection and effective hit
draw the line between life and death in tank warfare
Currently a stabilizer on specific tanks is simulated with a generic high vertical guidance (elevation) speed on the gun - which, of course, makes firing on the move or after a short stop easier, but still this does not provide a real simulation of stabilizer and fire control systems. After the introduction of the accurate stabilizer simulation, the vertical guidance speed on specifically equipped vehicles will be reduced to real life values.
This new feature will increase realism on machines historically equipped with a gun stabilisation system
The stabilization system for tank guns will be enabled by default for all armored vehicles on where such systems were historically installed. For tanks with the ability to aim the gun using a lever, by default the gun will aim as before, with the help of the aiming mechanism. The button to enable the stabilizer on such tanks will unlock the gun and enable stabilization mode.
