It seems that FAW is now taking [Acc] modifiers into account on Redshirt.

For comparison, here is the old buggy state:

Without FAW:

Plain beam array: 89.35%

With FAW:

Plain beam array FAW2: 69.72%
Acc2 beam array FAW2: 69.74%

Plain beam array FAW3: 69.22%
Acc2 beam array FAW3: 69.96%



Turrets for comparison:

Plain turret: 71.05% (expected value from formula: 70.07%)
Acc2 turret: 83.14% (expected value from formula: 81.5%)

[All data analysed with the ACT plugin v1050 (for raw damage and accurate hitrates).]
And here are some new results from redshirt (significantly more variation than the old test, only 700-800 swings per value instead of the 10k+ in the old 4h test):

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Defense: 67.7% (includes 10% elusive)
Bonus Accuracy: 15.0%


Without FAW:

Plain beam array: 85.54%
Acc2 beam array: 86.98%


With FAW:

Plain beam array FAW2: 62.37%
Acc2 beam array FAW2: 72.44%

Plain beam array FAW3: 65.86%
Acc2 beam array FAW3: 73.08%


Turret for comparison:

Plain turret: 68.60% (expected value from formula: 65.49%)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Defense: 57.7% (includes 10% elusive)
Bonus Accuracy: 25.0% (includes 10% accurate)


Without FAW:

Plain beam array: 89.03%
Acc2 beam array: 96.32%


With FAW:

Plain beam array FAW2: 74.61%
Acc2 beam array FAW2: 86.98%

Plain beam array FAW3: 73.85%
Acc2 beam array FAW3: 88.80%


Turret for comparison:

Plain turret: 77.19% (expected value from formula: 75.36%)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Defense: 82.7% (includes 10% elusive)
Bonus Accuracy: 15.0%


Without FAW:

Plain beam array: 75.67%
Acc2 beam array: 78.65%


With FAW:

Plain beam array FAW2: 58.84%
Acc2 beam array FAW2: 66.95%

Plain beam array FAW3: 57.22%
Acc2 beam array FAW3: 70.29%


Turret for comparison:

Plain turret: 61.88% (expected value from formula: 59.63%)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


So it seems that FAW is still an accuracy downgrade because of the beam / cannon accuracy difference (see http://hilbertguide.com/blog/#2012-08-18 for my personal theory regarding the source of this discrepancy), but it correctly applies [Acc] modifiers now.
