Hello,

 

I am looking through the equipment and need advice,

 

for tanks that have vertical stab, what is better, keep the current vertical stab or use the Impoved rotation mechanism?

 

and which is better for aiming, vertical stab or improved aiming unit?

Vertical stabiliser makes your aim circle 20/23% smaller to start with, improved rotation mechanism gives 10/12.5% - but also increases hull and turret traverse.

 

For purely aiming, I'd assume vstab is better, for something like a TD or a heavy with a slow turret then trading off some dispersion for quicker hull/turret movement it might be the IRM is a better choice

if you use a GLD/Vstab you get the benefit of both, so I can't see why you wouldn't - at work so can't test this though

Yes, the effect stack up.

Can the rotator be mounted on TDs as well? Some of those have okayish gun handling but dreadfully slow turret rotation speeds... :popcorn:

Yes, the improved rotation mechanism can be mounted on TDs too.

Improved rotation device is like half vert stabs, (slightly more in a bonus slot), but with other advantages like increased turret and track traverse. It can also be mounted on FVs and Arty so they are going to be able to aim faster for some reason, (shakes fist at WG). It counts as both a firepower and mobility piece of equipment so you get the bonuses when using it in Arty's, TD's and Medium tanks.

 

Aim unit makes your aim circle smaller when fully aimed, (so less minimum dispersion). You'll be more accurate with it but will have to wait a bit longer for your aim circle to shrink to the minimum size.

On tanks which have bad gun handling and no possibility to mount rammer, both are a good option. (BatChat, Bourrasque, Lorraine...)
