How does detection work?

If I install detection improvement mod, does it mean a DD with 5.7 km detectability will be actually 7.1 km for me, but still 5.7 km for other ships without their mods?

 

So confusing!

There is only one thing that you can do to worsen an enemy ship's surface detection range:  Setting them on fire.

Other Effects of Fire

  • Ships on fire have their surface detection range increased by 2.0 km and their aerial detection radius increased by 3.0 km. This is particularly noteworthy for destroyer captains.

No, it improves (decreases) your detection radius (the distance enemy ships spot you) by 10%. There are no mods that increase enemy detection.

Read the wiki article on detection.

If it worked that way 5.7 + .57 = 6.27...7.1 Wut?

2000 battles... 500 posts... doesn't know how detection works... :cap_fainting:

That was my thought: "He's asking NOW?"

I've been keeping an eye on his battle count. It hasn't changed in MONTHS. He's either playing on another server and posting here (fair enough if he's in Euro or especially SEA server and his first language is English) or is a confabulating troll.
