I regulary get shot.  Does this mean all this time I could have been Complaining about it?  :trollface:

 

I was waiting for the SPG's to return fire, and see the results about comparative damage.

 

In the end it comes down to Knowing your Enemy, where they're weak spots are, or "Where" the generic weak spots are.

Good video for those that are interested though.

Just a quick question....

 

the video explains that the HE ammo detonates on impact with armour but then what is the use of armour penetration mm on derp guns, is it for HEAT ammo ??

 

I have killed and got killed one shot from derp guns even though I am not open top or hitting open top. Care to explain ???

You need full pen from HE to get full damage.

Thanx

 

So HE does massive damage IF it penetrates and minor damage if it does not

​"Splash" damage if it does not. The splash can still be significant, really depends on the gun.

A fine necro. Well worth the effort and really brings some of the critical aspects of this thread back to the fore.
