The T-100 LT's on the move accuracy is so good on the move, is it even worth using vertical stabilizer, or should I go gun rammer/laying drive? Or should I skip all of them and go binocs?

 

The Russian lights are the first line I want to grind through, so I want to ask before getting to the top.

Vert Stabs >>>> GLD

 

The aim time is fine and a GLD isn't going to do you much good on the move.

 

Edit: Not at it yet, but I'd run optics + vert stabs + vents or maybe maybe sub the vents for a rammer.

I run vents, optics, rammer, and food...

 

Trust me, it's more than enough on these maps.

That's what I was thinking, but what about binocs?

Binocs aren't necessary at Tier X because everything already has such good view range, and they're too limiting compared to Optics which are permanently enabled.  

 

I would agree that VStab isn't a lock for this tank, but you do need to pick 3 out of the following 4:  Optics, Vents, Rammer, VStab.  I'd base this on your playstyle.

Binos only work after you stop.

Optics have less VR than binos but optics work on the move.

The LT 100's strength is its mobility.

 

At T-X mediums can spot as well as LTs so staying mobile and keeping the OPFOR lit is best done with optics.

Sitting in a bush at T-X isn't as successful as it can be at T-VIII and down, where the VR of your LT is so much superior to other classes.

I like vents, especially if the crew has 3-4 skills/perks.

That's not entirely true. Yes, many tanks at high tiers can hit the 445m max view range, but going beyond that number will still help you spot high camo vehicles sooner.

 

Not saying you should run binocs (I wouldn't), just pointing out a common misconception about view range - there actually is an advantage to going above that 445m limit.

The combination of your camo factor + 490M of spotting range makes the T-100lt pretty damn hard to beat (when equipped as stated above).

I agree, I meant running: Optics, Vents, then Binocs, but I'm thinking Rammer might be better for me.

That's the reason I considered them in the first place.

 

Thank you all for the advice, no need for more replies, I think I got my answer.

I wasn't suggesting that going beyond the cap wasn't valuable, but I would disagree with your first sentence and say it is entirely true for Random Battles.  Sure, on paper and in a vacuum, 556 meters of view range is obviously better than 489 for breaking down camo, but 556 from Binocs doesn't allow for a dynamic playstyle at all times.  It doesn't allow for optimal active spotting in many circumstances.  It is so limiting, and unnecessary, when you can outspot everything with Optics anyway.  In one specific moment in one specific battle, sure, Binocs are better, but overall, over a large sample size for a Tier X Scout, Optics are by far the better choice.
