Target painter and signature radius

Recommended Posts

So the question is: When targeted NPC is target painted by me, does it have increased signature radius only for me or for all other fleet pilots who are attacking the same target as me?

I was reading about it on Wiki but couldn't find this information. I understand that the biggest advantage of target painters and increased signature radius are for Missile doctrine but there is also small advantage for turret doctrines shooting the same target. Am I right?

Target painting a ship makes its signature radius larger for everyone. Turret tracking and damage application is a bit complicated but having a higher signature radius on a target is definitely helpful.

Have a look at the missile and turret tracking damage from the EVE university wiki. https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Missile_Damage#Missile_damage_formula and https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Turret_Damage#Math

 

You can see that a higher signature radius will increase the hit chance for turrets and the applied damage for missiles. In both cases the painter will have more effectiveness when used on smaller and/or fast moving targets.

 

The entry for target painting explains about the painter improving things for the whole fleet https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Target_Painter#Target_Painting

Thx, very insightful articles. Copied from wiki: "Target painting improves everyone's chance of hitting the targeted foe, not just the painting pilot, and so a single target painting ship can be a great complement to a fleet of damage dealers."
