As noted, does anyone use the TAS?  If so on what class of ships?

I use it on some battleships, but it's never on any recommended lists

I used TASM1 when I was a newbie and didn't know better.

CSM1 is just far superior.  Concealment especially with full stealth is very useful in controlling engagements, and there's the little dispersion penalty that your attackers have to deal with.  The latter isn't much but altogether, it's better than what you get back from TASM1.

 

IMO, TASM1 needs to be changed to be more useful.  Maybe:

+ Increase the proximity spotting range with TASM1 a bit

and

+ Improve Sigma, Accuracy of all guns and increased AA Efficiency

 

The defensive benefits of CSM1 are just vastly superior.  I'd rather have TASM1 be changed for the ones who desire increased offensive capability compared to the defensive benefits of CSM1.

Depends... If you're in a knife fight ship  TAS is a Cool adv to have... You Can see them before they Can see you.

In Cruisers to give you a heads up on who is sneaking up on you to radar/hydro them up

BBs rarely do I use TAS...  in a BB I think Concealment is your best bet..

If your specing a ship for long range battles in like a Yamato with the range module so your shooting over 30 km...it can help in early detection of torpedos so when you are focusing on a target and see the torpedo alert it can help in being able to determine a course of action soon enough to be able to do that....not many instances where you will find this useful but there are some.

Somehow I always run into people in IJN destroyers who are using them. 99% of the time they get outspotted and smashed for making that choice. 1% of the time, it's super annoying when I'm suddenly prox spotted through an island and can't spot the other ship back.

RDF CO skill gives you a better means of locating the closest ship. TASM only increases the awareness an extra kilometer. the only ship class I can see it being useful now are CV's. Just park behind an island and you have increased awareness.

As Flabass and Flamu are famous for saying:

Of course the Tirpitz is running aquisition....

....

Seems to be a EU thing.

....

I believe it helps hydro ships most.

I still am a newbie, and that is why...

I use TASM on my Tirpitz. I figure I’m going to be spotted anyway, and being forward means the risk of torps is higher. But tbh, it was hilarious in T8 Ranked, where I could charge a DD in their smoke, Prox spot them and slaughter them with point blank secondaries and smoke whilst they couldn’t spot me :-D

Yes, but when it's a BB that's got your DD spotted, it's kind of nice that he knows his fate is sealed and is about to get dev struck.

It is a dumb feature though.
