Suggestion: 

To implement a focused target window in-game similar to the one seen to the left of the screenshot here:

As shown, the selected ship is shown with quite a zoomed-up view, in a pop-up window to the left of the screen. Most visual and special effects are not shown, or shown with reduced quality, to reduce graphics load, but the ship and ordinance directed at it is clearly shown. 

If implemented in WoWs, this feature will help to provide a focused view of targets that is stable and detailed even while the player must redirect camera elsewhere temporarily. It may help with judging ship speed (especially at low speeds), angle, and suppression fire from other sources. It may help to see how many fires are on a ship, whether a ship is listing, surviveability state of its AA and secondary armament, without having to resort to enhanced-zoom mods, or painstakingly toggle zoom manually.

 

The window should automatically switch to the most recent target fired at via main batteries, and stay on target until shells hit. It will then proceed to freeze-frame the image and highlight shell impact locations, be it on the ship or hitting the water. This will be helpful to the player who will need the ranging info for future salvos.

When it is not focusing on the main-battery target, the camera will automatically switch to aggressors instead who are firing on the player, by default the closest one. However, the player can also manually lock the camera on a target of their choice, with options to toggle temporary switching to main battery target. In short, it is highly customizable. Window position, graphics quality, etc.

Extended options this may serve is to show allies in need, for instance using a directed radio call, or on targets designated by allies, such as a priority target DD allies are signalling.

We do not need this.

 

Can we actually leave something for the "skill" ?

*SNIP*

I would not mind a little focus window, although purely for viewing the ship currently in focus enyoing it visually up close. Don't need the other stuff:Smile_sceptic:
