I saw this post on one of Aerroon's videos about IFHE.

 

Nelly Nelson

Aerron: With IFHE, all secondaries above tier 7 theoretically should be able to penetrate the 32mm bow/belt of the Yamato. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bismarck w/o IFHE: ---105mm / 4 = 26mm (cant penetrate 32mm bow/belt) ---150mm / 4 = 38mm (can penetrate 32mm bow/belt) Bismarck w/ IFHE: ---105mm / 4 = 26mm x 1.3 = 34mm (can penetrate 32mm bow/belt) ---150mm / 4 = 38mm x 1.3 = 49mm (can penetrate 32mm bow/belt)

 

Does this actually work?!?

Here's the scientifically detailed mechanics of IFHE: http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/112361-dealing-damage-heapifhe-edition-he-mechanics/

 

 

TL;DR: HEAP for tier 5-7 DDs, Clemson 102mm, Akizuki 100mm, tier 6+ 150mm, 152mm and 155mm (which can fire HE) and any German BBs with 128mm secondary guns* for maximum effect.

*Applicable to tier 10 German BB, Gneisenau is a little too low tier to benefit unless you find yourself fighting tier 8+ opponents often.

What i'm asking is:

If German HE is divided by 4 than IFHE should work on the 105mm secondaries on the Gneisenau and up.

E.g. 105/4 = 26.25 x 1.3 (Because IFHE = +30%) = 34.125. Therefore being able to overmuch the Bows of Battleships.

Or isn't this true.

1. Base Alpha Piercing HE is a value set by devs manually. The value is caliber/6 (or 4 for certain German guns*) and is rounded.
2. IFHE calculation is not rounded, so 152mm (Alpha Piercing HE=25mm) for example, gets 25mm*1.3=32.5mm HE Piercing after IFHE. Effectively the same as 33mm Piercing and is able to penetrate up to 32mm armor.

*the certain German guns include the 150mm on T7+ German BB, Graf Spee and Roon, 128mm on Gneisenau and GK and everything of or above 283mm.

 

 

Conclusion

High tier KM BB's 150mm can penetrate BB bow with or without IFHE. 105mm can't penetrate BB bow or even CA/CL 25mm bow even with IFHE. 128mm secondaries can penetrate cruiser bow without IFHE and can penetrate BB bow with IFHE. 105mm have very low penetration, can't even penetrate DD hull.
