Firebird has an effective range of 18 meters. It deals its damage both during its flaming attack as well as after, by setting opponents on fire. The gun can deal damage to several tanks simultaneously. For a novice player, the main advantage of Firebird is that aim isn't really necessary. Just point a stream of fire at the enemy.
Description in Garage
In close-quarter battles, there is no better weapon than a Firebird. It is a weapon of mass annihilation that can and will melt down any tank and its crew in no time. It is highly effective in confined spaces against slow moving tanks. Firebird is relatively slow when it comes to recharging, but you can also shoot with a partially recharged gun.
Table of characteristics
Damage (tick) — damage dealt to an enemy tank in one "tick" (tick = half a second).
Amount of energy — amount of energy the turret has.
Consumption — amount of energy spent by the turret per second.
Reloading — amount of energy points recovered per second.
Min burning damage (tick) — minimum extra damage dealt to an enemy tank per one "tick" that occurs due to heating of enemy's hull. At the moment of shooting, basic damage and burning damage are summed up (the more time you spend attacking an enemy, the higher the burning damage).
Max burning damage (sec) — maximum extra damage dealt to an enemy tank per one second that occurs due to heating of enemy's hull. At the moment of shooting, basic damage and burning damage are summed up (the more time you spend attacking an enemy, the higher the burning damage).
Temperature limit — maximum temperature that an enemy tank can be heated to. Affects burning time and burning damage.
Heating rate (tick) — increase in an enemy tank's temperature per one "tick".
Cooling rate (sec) — the time it takes for an enemy tank to get back to its normal temperature after being fully heated. The tank receives burning damage during this period.
Range of max damage (m) — distance at which the turret deals its full damage. If the distance is greater than the max damage range, the damage constantly decreases till the minimum damage range.
Range of min damage (m) — distance at which the turret's damage stops decreasing. If the distance to the target is greater, damage will be dealt according to the "weak damage" parameter.
Weak damage (%) — the % of normal damage dealt to an enemy at distances greater than minimum damage range.
Cone angle (deg) — damage dealt at the end of damage cone. Turret does not deal damage outside the cone.
Rotation speed (deg/sec) — maximum speed the turret can turn at.
Rotation acceleration (deg/sec²) — acceleration of the turret getting to its maximum rotation speed.
Burning time (sec) — period of time (starting from the moment when Firebird's attack is over) during which enemy tank will be burning and receiving "burning damage".
