Hello. Sorry about my english. I'm trying to make a comparison between soviet and german accuracy, but it's almost imposible to do it because of the different criteria. There are a few topics about accuracy, but I didn't find what I was looking for.
I know soviets use median dispersion and Germans use 50% zone dispersion. I have been reading this well-known page: http://www.panzer-war.com/page34.html
The autor says it's necesary to multiply by 2 the soviet 50% figures to be able to compare them with german's. But i'm not sure about that. For example, we can take one of the D-25T tests:
The results are as follows:
We can see the 100% zone (a circle, not a square) and the 50% is very different in both tests. If we multiply by 2 the 50% radius to get the 50% zone, the results are very different. Let's compare that test with the IS-3 test:
So my question is, is correct to multiply by 2 the R50% soviet dispersion get the german 50% zone?
I mean, you can get the 50% zone if you have the R100%, but not if you have R50% because R100% isn't double R50%.
PD: Making some tests about accuracy, I got this two figures:
In the first figure, I got the real dispersion between the shots to get the maximum dispersion between them. In the second figure I used the maximum dispersion, multiplied it by 2 (Radius - Diameter) and got a very different result.
