G’day tankers.


This query relates to understanding the benefit of equipment. It should be obvious, I just haven’t found a n exact answer. You know those increase by X% types like vents. I’m wondering if they are percentage multipliers or percentage adders especially in relation to vents. For example the equipment vents in conjunction with  signal boosting. Does it increase my signal boosting skill by 5% or does it increase my signal  range by 5%? Does it more than double the view range bonus given by situational awareness skill, taking it from 3% to 8% extended view range or does it increase view range by a minuscule amount because the increase applies to a percentage of the 3% bonus given by the skill and not the view range itself? Does it affect default loading and driving parameters or only the crew skills associated with those things and unless the crew has such a skill trained it provides 0 benefit? Does it work with perks? 

Just looking for clarity.

i think vents is indicated as a 5% increase on all skills however in  reality its closer to 2.5%. easiest way would be to measure the effect on your reload time. i think the boosts you get are slight (from equipment and skills/perks) so as not to be overpowering but give you an advantage.

what we need is live tank stats AKA tank stats that change due to crew skills and equipment/consumables.

Vents improve crew skill, which is a factor of tank ability.


5% to commander skill level =/= +5% view range because:


If a 50% skill commander has a 350m view range, and a 100% commander has a 400m view range, each % of commander skill is worth 1m of view range. 105% trained commander would give 405m view range, and not 420m view range (which is a straight 5% additiona to 400m view range).
