axhat said:AP is pretty self explanatory, but when do I want to use HE? After I've damaged the armor? , or only on soft targets?
D3terioNation said:When the reload system is fixed, firing HE rounds at infantry will become quite common. Unlike now, where I will not bother wasting an AP round to kill an individual.
Atm you'd be mad to unload an AP round for an HE round, just to kill a 1 or 2 humans
sometimes one is sufficient. I blew away a Pz IV with the IS-2's 122 mm HE round on Barashka. I will admit it was a fairly close range shot though. I was on the allied side of the bridge and it was about half way across it. As an added bonus though I managed to get Kraut infantry man that was hiding behing one of the over-turned vehicles. =Dworluk said:2 HE on a PIV and its dead (and no it wasnt damaged unless some funny pak decided to damage it in the spawn)
APCR stands for armour-piercing, composite rigid. To quote wikipedia "The APCR projectile is a core of a high-density hard material such as tungsten carbide surrounded by a full bore shell of a lighter material (e.g. an aluminium alloy)." Essentially it's a specialised anti-tank round, with a higher penetration than standard AP. It was relatively rare round since it was expensive and used rare materials. I believe the devs gave it to the pz3 to balance out the game, otherwise the pz3 wouldn't stand much of a chance against the T34.futurenhler said:What about the APCR
im not sure what tank it is in though
