You could get an extra 2 seconds with the Designated Target perk, and now equipment choices can also extend it. Think some builds were able to get it to nearly 18 seconds (?). 

There's a directive too that adds more.

 This, and what puggsley said. The equipment 2.0 is a double edged sword imo. It really diversifies the builds, but also makes it more restrictive. The special slots, for example. Everyone wants to be the best. although WG said they're not forcing us to, it's a simple psychological trick to make us want that extra juicy seconds or percentage of less dispersion, or some extra HP.

 

18-20 seconds, then maybe someone decked his LT or MT out as the ultimate scout with vision systems, radio jammers and Binocs/optics, with a scouting crew and a directives + food. It'll just be like that sometimes now.

Not gonna lie, having 472m view range on a tier 7 lt is kinda fun with binocs.

Yeah, about that, was fiddling with the numbers on WG's Tank Compare function, and managed to get my AMX 13 57 to 595 view range (for comparison, Type 64 can only get 574 max).

 

The Optical Calibration directive is an odd one. Normally, it does not affect Binocs, but when you put Binocs and Optics together in a tank together, the directive's +2.5% now adds to the Binocs' view range. Must be an oversight of Equipment 2.0. A majorly-exploitable one.

 

Numbers run for view range:

390m: basic 13 57

488m: 13 57 w/ binocs

497m: 13 57 w/ binocs at the Scouting slot

519m: 13 57 w/ binocs at the Scouting slot, basic Vents, BiA

582m: 13 57 w/ binocs at the Scouting slot, dirty Vents, BiA, Food, Recon, Sit Awareness

582m: 13 57 w/ binocs at the Scouting slot, dirty Vents, BiA, Food, Recon, Sit Awareness, and Optical Calibration directive

582m: 13 57 w/ binocs at the Scouting slot, dirty Vents, BiA, Food, Recon, Sit Awareness, and basic/bounty/bondy Optics

595m: 13 57 w/ binocs at the Scouting slot, dirty Vents, BiA, Food, Recon, Sit Awareness, Optical Calibration directive, and basic/bounty/bondy Optics

 

For comparison:

561m: leFH18B2 w/ binocs, (open-topped so no vents), BiA, Food, Recon, Sit Awareness, and basic/bounty/bondy Optics

574m: Type 64 w/ binocs at the Scouting slot, (open-topped so no vents), BiA, Food, Recon, Sit Awareness, and basic/bounty/bondy Optics

640m: RhmPzw w/ binocs at the Scouting slot, dirty Vents, BiA, Food, Recon, Sit Awareness, Optical Calibration directive, and basic/bounty/bondy Optics

Don't worry mttspiii, you actually press 'enter'.

 

 

That is exploitable but CVS should still be number 1 anyway.
