You know what’s soul destroying?  Get a Radleys, High Caliber etc etc on Malinovka and still ended up with a draw because your full health skorpion is too afraid to take the shot to kill a one-shot su-152.

Yeah, I was in the little lake-bowl on Fjords, in my STB and there was a AMX 105 TD above me who'd rushed up to the rocks like a doofus. I THOUGHT I was going to get free farm damage and clearly hold the position. Instead I was the one who got farmed.

 

I did kill him, but lost so much [edited] HP, that that sealed my fate, and - later on - the game.

 

WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT, NO SIR.

 

Funny, I also was on Fjords when that happened to me...

High pen tanks rarely use one.

Yeah, really depends on the tank. I usually put 10 or so rounds on APCR as a rule of thumb. Now if it's other tanks, it's either I use a lot of prem ammo (sorry, but I do.) or none at all. Like... say KV-2, all HE. The KanPan 105, no need for HEAT. Derp Gun... used to have 5 HE and all HEAT but that's when we were Hetzing. Now, rarely do it. 

I used to play Type 59 with all APCR... but a good friend taught me how to play using regular ammo. So I have 5 HE then half regular half prem. Leopard 1, regular APRC is better than HEAT but I carry a few just in case. I agree that high pen guns don't really need it. 

So, at least personally, it is really situational (save a few cases). 

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. Guess which one I am.

Always carry some especially the 3 T8 Chinese prems.

 

Had a guy on a team last night who pushed the ice road in Mountain Pass, driving a M103.

 

He had 12 shots fired for 9 hits and 438 damage.

 

Afterwards asked him why he only fired HE when we could have won if he loaded a few prem rounds.

 

"Its not fair using those rounds." was the reply. He had a 47% WR...

47.5% :medal:

 

Jokes aside , I just had my 2nd mastery game today .

I used mainly APCR ( default shell ) and 2 HEAT since I ran out of the APCR I brought in the tank , my loadout was 26 APCR 22 HEAT 2 HE . Knowing what type of shells to use will help win you games , if you see a tank you just can't penetrate with your default shell and you insist not to use gold shell is just grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory .

Personally, I carry premium ammo on all my vehicles, however, I only use them when necessary or when I completely run out of Regular Ammo. As a personal rule, I carry more regular rounds as I do premium rounds, and some HE rounds, just in case. My ratio is usually 70% Regular ammo, 29% Premium Ammo, and 1% HE. Always wise to carry premium ammo in every battle cause you would never know what the situation calls for in order to win, but spamming the things, (IE, firing them endlessly at a light tank or any vehicle with NO armor or constantly firing HEAT at spaced armor) that is highly questionable.

 9 HE hits with 120mm? or what size of M103 gun. Thats terrible HE spam, I could get 1k+ in stock IS-M if manage to get 9 HE hits.

Man, 5 games in my Leopard and I get hit with nothing but gold, even from top tiers. Well, people need any crutch they can get a hold of I guess.

One understated but more important reason to use sprem, especially against nimble paper targets: more shell velocity. One example is the (old) RU215's 90mm's, where players load HEAT sprem only because standard AP is horribly slow for the tank's skirmisher-scout LT gameplay.

 

That said, I do sometimes find it hard to use sprem because of this: I usually shoot too far forward against heavily-armored targets at max render range because I got accustomed to the slower standard shells.

This usually only applies to the situation where regular ammo is AP and the sprem is APCR. For a lot of high-tier Meds, this is less useful since their basic round is APCR and their sprem is slow-[edited] HEAT.

I carry 70-80% prem rounds. Usually its about 50/50 but depends what I am shooting at. Most tanks these days require prem rounds to even have a chance at damaging.
