the word "snap" is confusing me.
is the accuracy increased during turet rotation?
or
when turet stops rotating and crosshair snaps to enemy?
then there is short time period after snap for accuracy bonus?

It reduces the accuracy penalty applied during turret rotation by 0.075% per training level (up to 7.5%).

AFAIK dispersion during turret rotation will decrease.

Reduces the accuracy penalty applied during turret rotation by 0.075% per training level (up to 7.5%). If two Gunners have this skill, only the higher rating is effective. Typically not as valuable on vehicles without turrets, but it does apply to lateral gun movement on turret-less vehicles too. The skill is cumulative with a Vertical Stabilizer.
Primarily helpful on fast tanks that like to circle or flank, but also useful for peek-a-boo shooting.

So yeas, your aiming circle won't spread that much while you rotate your turret, read it like: will be smaller so you will be more precise :)
And no, this does not affect your aiming time while your turret is standing still, ONLY reduce penalty while rotating turret

9gag? First I would need to know what that site is. :Smile_veryhappy:  I started using "AFAIK" several years ago, I think It was a Youtube comment.

When ever you rotate your turret you have dispersion, of course when you rotate it with the speed of a dead snail, dispersion is  unnoticable. And yes, skill works during turret rotation, doesn't matter how fast you do it :)

AFAIK and other abbreviations are nearly as old as the Internet, nothing wrong with them IMO.

Eny Dr from UK, USSR or USA will disagree.

Allso my taperecorder are older than the internet, and it have got (among other buttons) FF, Rec and Rev-button.
AFAIK LP's predates the internet aswell.

AFAIK a snap shot is one that is a quick reaction to a target, taken as soon as the opportunity presents itself rather than a carefully aimed one, so in theory it gives you a better chance to hit with this first shot. 'Snapping off' a shot at a target of opportunity.

Well, I ment the abbreviations used in written conversations, such as AFAIK, LOL, BRB, not abbreviations as a whole.

I learned abbreviations like AFAIK already in z-net, back in the early 90s.

Maybe what he meant with "as old as the internet" was "as old as the world wide web (AKA 'www')"

As a sidenote: the worldwideweb is just one service available in the internet and dates back to the mid-nineties, while the "internet" dates back to 1969

Those have been around since the time of the telegraph, where words cost money, and were imported into the internet by lazy typists like me.
