Added Experience and Silver earnings.

 

I would like to add the exact percentages of penalties to crew effectiveness in each category when a crew member is killed but I am having trouble locating this information. Would a WG staff member be willing or able to provide this data? It would be much appreciated.

This should be required reading for all tankers.  Sadly though, I fear most if my team mates lack the vocabulary to comprehend any of it.

Great work OP, going to try to switch from mobile version now so I can give you a +1.

Updated the Close Quarters bonus and thank you.

 

Added in Vision Mechanics which includes: view range, draw distance, camo factor, and spotting range.

 

EDIT: Sorry that section got a little long. I am trying to break it into smaller sections but you need all of that for the proper camo and spotting calculations...

How do you read the bell curve at the end?

Are .1% of my shots perfectly accurate with 0.0 devation?

The highest point would be the center of the reticle with 2 deviations out being the outside of the reticle. The 2.1% and 0.1% numbers are outside of the aiming circle. The percentages represent how likely it is that the shell will land there. There is a 68.2% chance that your shell will be towards the center of the reticle. I will clarify this in the section.
