Tank gun accuracy?

So I've that tank guns and the ammo have an accuracy of 0.2 mrads = 32" at 4 Km (M829 max range).

Which factors make a tank gun accurate? I mean besides any practical value, why hasn't anybody made a more accurate gun?

You know... to whack Ivans from a longer distance...

    >Which factors make a tank gun accurate
    Plenty of factors, hence why tanks sometimes have MRS, barometer, wind speed meter to account for each shot which is calculated by the tank's FCS
    >more accurate gun
    GL-ATGM

    Tank gun accuracy is presented as first round hit probability.

      Imagine missing a target that is touching the muzzle and everyone is like "yeah, that happens 1 in 20 times".

        You don't know this though. Your gunsight is centre mass of the target at point black, but the barrel is resting on their shoulder.

        That's what happens when you use 1d20 instead of 3d6.

    More accurate means you have to go with rifling which includes more problems than smoothbore guns that are accurate enough. The Americans had one for a while and the brits still have one but it’s about to be replaced. This thread is now over

      I have no idea what I’m talking about but I think the economy of scale when spinning a few kilograms over a mile or so has more issues than fin stabilized modern rounds
      I have no earthly idea

      if the ammo you are using needs the rotation, yeah.
      smoothbore isn't "accurate enough"
      its something we went back to because we developed a kind of shell that didn't need rotation and figured out that some of the newer antiarmor stuff we were trying to do was made WORSE by rotation.

    Just for context
    4km is 4374 yards
    One MOA is 44” at that distance
    If what you say is true then this is squarely sub-MOA so like super accurate

    Only very specific rifles are constantly sub MOA and they have a lot of stipulations to that like having your barrel between a certain temperature and with specific match loads

    It is actually very accurate

      with a rifle, there's a fleshy piece behind the gun that is responsible for a lot of the error beyond what the rifle itself is responsible for. with a tank, that variable is replaced with huge mass of steel.

    We have the technology to make guided shells, so we don't need to make the gun super accurate at long range. The gun can be off target by several feet and the shell will still hit where it was supposed to.

    God showed His love toward us when He sent His Son Jesus Christ, to die on a cross, then three days later Jesus Christ came back to life from the dead. He promised that whomsoever believes on Him will have eternal life. All we have to do is ask Him to forgive us of our sins.

    >0.2 mrads = 32" at 4 Km
    this is already significantly less than 1moa, which is pretty damn good. You are going to struggle to find targets at extended range anyway, the earth isn't perfectly flat, so terrain, concealment and the freaking curvature of the earth is going to be a significant impediment to engagements farther than 4-5km.
    so why make it more expensive, more complicated and require an upgrade package to do it?

    Tank guns are very, very accurate for what they are. Pretty sure every tank we have is submoa at this point.
    A lot of it is due to round design thanks to smoothbores and exception FCS.
    The only reason they aren't more accurate is due to environmentals. But being very under 1 moa is very impressive.

    They can't really be made that much more accurate. The limiting factors are completely out of control.

    The temperature of the air, the wind speed, the wind direction, the air pressure, the temperature of a rounds propellant, the fact that every round has a unique v0 even from within the same batch. Like yeah you can put all these values into your FCS to get a good of a chance as posible, but can you know if the wind speed and direction is the same throughout the entire course of the round? How can you know how fast the shell you're shooting actually is before you have actually shot it and messured it? Each individual shell can vary +/-25 m/s even if they are from the same batch, and there is just no way for an FCS to predict it, resulting in some slight deviations at a distnace, but tank guns are still accurate as frick even with all of this said.
