Enter your initial velocity, distance, angle of fire, bullet weight, air density, and ballistic coefficient into the calculator to determine various ballistics parameters for Tarkov.

## Ballistics Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the time of flight for a projectile in Tarkov:

Time of Flight = Distance / (Initial Velocity * cos(Angle of Fire))

Variables:

- Time of Flight is the time taken for the projectile to reach the target (s)
- Initial Velocity is the speed of the projectile at the moment of launch (m/s)
- Angle of Fire is the angle at which the projectile is fired relative to the horizontal plane (degrees)

To calculate the time of flight, divide the distance by the product of the initial velocity and the cosine of the angle of fire.

## Understanding Ballistics Calculation

Ballistics calculation in Tarkov involves predicting the trajectory of projectiles based on various factors such as initial velocity, angle of fire, and environmental conditions like wind speed and air density. Accurate calculation helps players adjust their aiming and shooting strategies.
