I always thought it would be a rather usefull tool because it would compensate mech movement and recoil and ensure safe hits with heavy single-shot weapons.
Thats also why the Masakari has one (PPC's shouldn't be fired into nowhere).
I think in real life it wouldn't be so easy as in MW4 where you just run around and shoot.
The mech itself rocks and moves in itself and it would be a much safer thing to a have computer calculate this, especially with convergence in mind so your shots would hit the same spot, thus improving their armor piercing abilitys.
It's probably build into all mechs to some extend, but the better versions could really be worth the weight if you think about it.
