Basically, you can only communicate with tanks, with whom your radio ranges directly touch.

u mean like chain reaction? if so i don't think so.

in my limited understanding of wot mechanics, you can see what your allies see within your radio range.

example: A (you) -------> B (within your radio range his radio within yours) -------> C (outside your radio range but within B's)

you (A) can see (enemy) what B see, B can see what C see but you cant see what C is relaying to B

its a lil bit confusing, yes, so am i  :Smile_trollface-3:  

again i might be wrong :Smile_veryhappy:

If two tanks have 300m radios they can communicate for up to 600m apart as soon as they go to 601m they will disappear from one another's minimap.
You cannot relay enemy positions that you yourself are not spotting. In order to receive intel on enemy locations you must have a radio range that intersects with the spotting vehicles range.

TL;DR:   Radio stacks up but then you'll get gimped by your tank's vision range.

You cannot relay information or get relayed information from other players indirectly through forwarding. Only direct communication between intersecting radio circles is possible.

There is however a skill/perk that allows relaying radio signals.

Relaying says nothing about actually relaying. It increases the radio range of allied tanks within your radios range by a max of 10%


Relaying:  This skill extends the Signal Range of allied communications within your vehicle's radio coverage by 0.1% per training level (up to 10%). It does not affect your own Signal Range. If two Radio Operators have the skill, only the higher rating is effective.

Signal Boosting:This skill extends the Signal Range of your vehicle's radio by 0.2% per training level (up to 20%). If two Radio Operators have the skill, only the higher rating is effective.

You can find info on all skills/perks in WOT Wiki
