Hi,

So accuracy in this game is sometimes a bit of a mystery, so I looked up what the wiki says and compared it to the actual game.

https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Battle_Mechanics#Gun_Accuracy

Points of note:

"The accuracy value for a gun is given in meters at a range of 100m. The lower the value the more accurate your gun is. The value describes 2 standard deviations σ from the center of your aim. "

The aiming circle (also called the dispersion circle, dispersion indicator or reticle) describes the area of 2 standard deviations (2σ from your aim point.

So consider STRV103, which has an accuracy of 0.3. As per the above theory, @356m the diameter of the aim circle should be (2x0.3)x3.56 = 2.14m

So look at the attached screen shot of the JT and ~356m. you can clearly see that the aim circle is bigger than the JT. IRL the JT is ~2.8m tall so clearly something doesn't add up (unless the JT is smaller in the game of course).

How would this make sense then? Well if the aim circle was actually 3 standard deviations and not 2 as stated then we get an aim circle of 2.14*1.5 = 3.2m, which roughly is what we see.

I have seen some other guides where the aim circle has been stated as 3SD, so maybe the wiki is wrong ? And I have no idea if this lines up with the dispersion distribution !
