Your gun aims DIRECTLY at the center of the enemy tank when you auto-aim, meaning your shots will ALWAYS AIM for the center, regardless if he/she is moving. 2. SHELL VELOCITY. This is very important. Shell velocity are how fast the shell travels in the air before reaching it's target. EACH tank in the game has a different gun, and they all fire different caliber of different sizes, EACH SHELL has a different shell velocity. Examples of "shell velocity" The Panzer IV tier 5 German medium tank with the 105 mm howitzer has very low velocity, 640 meters/second (I think) means firing at a moving target who is even 200 meters away ON THE MOVE will surely miss. The Tiger I (H) tier 7 German Heavy Tank with the long 88 mm gun has a shell velocity of 1,100 meter/second (I think), meaning firing at someone who is on the move around 300 meters (except fast light tanks), should connect with ease. How you should aim. If you are firing at a moving target it is generally better to manual aim. If someone is on the hill and you spot him (400 meters) then auto-aim will save you time. If the target begins to pull behind cover then pull the trigger, never mind how your aim circle is, pull it, it might hit him since it is aimed at the center of his tank. When should you actually AIM in long distances? When the enemy tank's armor is too strong in the front and you are actually aiming for weakspots, but if it is an auto-pen... auto-aim can help you a lot. Hope these tips help you. N3RV3
