^^ Yesss me wallet warrior :D

 

However, this is sort of buff. Now tashkent wont die that quickly and Scharnhorsts can get overpens on DDs hopefully. That thing is a DD killer.

Now i'm curious how much HE dmg will be after overpen, if it could happen.

 

HE cant over pen, it explodes on contact

wait, DD have Armor?

that's  news to me:trollface:

 

They have, especially Umikaze, you should take a look into it.

Armor reduces HE damage.

It is why you can't damage BB citadel with HE.

Nope, it can pen. Not unheard of to get citadels via HE on paper targets, eg low Tier CV. Couple of days back I detonated a Gearing firing HE from my Benson.

You just have to sacrifice your soul to RNG

No, this ain't WoT HE mechanic..

If HE pens the armor, it deals 33% of maximum  shell damage..

If HE pens the citadel armor, it deals maximum shell damage..

If HE can't pen the armor = No damage dealt

HE penetration = Gun caliber/6

Don't forget damage saturation that will reduce HE damage overtime

It is from Mogami 155mm gun. Also one hit by her secondaries.

At public test.

I never play WoT

Just I used to net more damage by hitting DD bridge using IJN DD gun rather than the hull, which usually has more armor.

Also hitting ship deck, ship hull, and ship bridge varies the output.

Idk if there is another mechanic about that, i meant, not about the armor thickness.

The damage from hitting DD bridge is usually twice that hitting the hull.

Like 2-3k damage per salvo using IJN DD.

 

Idk where my shell lands at that photo tho, i just shot to the smoke.

And that photo is not to prove my previous statement true, just want to tell if there's change of damage inflicted to DD.

I think they're a lot squishy now.

Previously, i used Nurnberg, 15 hits HE for about 7500 dmg.

This is going to be great for battleships like the Friedrich der Grobe with a secondary’s build, with 6x2 x 150mm x 10.1km secondary’s + hydro are just going to make DDs lives miserable , let alone main batteries
