So, quick question, and I think I know the answer but I wanted to ask first before I did anything. 

 

Currently, I'm at the Benson and I have a couple of questions about concealment. I know that you can take three active measures to reduce it: 

-The level 5 captains skill to reduce by 10%. 

-The module upgrade to reduce by 10%

-Ship Camouflage to reduce by 8(?)% (that could be wrong, i forget, but its irrelevant.) 

 

I know that these reduce your ships ability to be spotted visually. But what about when you're firing your guns? Do these mods/upgrades do ANYthing to reduce the amount of time that you're visible after you fire? Or reduce the range that you can be detected while firing? Like I mentioned before, I'm fairly certain that the answer is no, but I am curious.

 

Also, another quick one. When you do fire, your detectability is increased by how much? I read somewhere it was 2km on top of your normal detection range. 

 

Thanks! DD on!

Ships camo only reduces visibility by 3%.

 

When you fire, none of that visibility reduction means squat or decreases the time that you're visible and firing also, I think, increases your visibility by 3 Km, not 2Km.

 

Also, turn off your AA.

I think it's 4km, atleast on the farragut, as i can fire out to 11.4 or so km and not get spotted, anything below that is no good.

It's just under 4km for most ships. 3.8km is the norm, but some of the lower tier stuff can get 3.6km.

 

It also appears that that 3.8 penalty is applied after your camo bonuses, so maxing camo on a Farragut actually gives you a 2.19km window of stealth gunnery.
