Does anyone know if the Designated Target perk works for gunners in SPGs, where the spot was done by another vehicle (not by the crew of that SPG)?

 

Thank you in advance.

The Designated Target Perk enables the Gunner to make targeted enemy vehicles within 10 degrees of your reticle remain visible for two more seconds than they normally would remain visible. This Perk works only while in arcade view or sniper view and not in SPG strategic view. However, any allied vehicle will benefit from a team mate's use of this Perk, including SPGs using strategic view. If two Gunners on the vehicle have the Perk, the effect is not cumulative. Primarily helpful for snipers and in some cases for scouts.

WOWS has the courtesy to mark out the skills that wont apply to the ship the captain is currently assigned to.  Wish WOT would do the same.

The ingame description for most stuff lacks the detail.

 

I still use the Wotwiki as a reference, and is a nice place to start when finishing a tank grind and wondering about buying the next tier up.

yup. but you still have to look at it.
Normally, the DT perk works on tanks that are within 10deg left and right of your gunbarrel centerline and 15 deg up and 15 deg down.
SPGs get it because deadeye doesn't work for HE and its a balance thing
