IFHE on Ishizuchi (Is a Zucchini)?

Hi all,

 

I'm a little confused about the mechanics behind IFHE and it's impacts on certain shells and armour thicknesses.

The Ishizuchi has crap AP but her HE is great for her tier. If you were to add IFHE, coupled with the skill that increases the Burn Chance of her HE shells, would this be of benefit?

Game description of IFHE clearly mentions about the increase in penetration value, not increase in the damage of individual shell. And there is nothing in T5 that Ishizuchi HE cannot pen already (ofcourse except battleship belt).

Want to penetrate the citadel armor belt of cruisers with HE shells? Totally no need to do so. The penetration value is enough to penetrate 50mm armor belt, but still inefficient when face 75mm armor belt. By the way, the sacrifice of fire chance is too expensive.:fish_glass:

Yes but penetration values and what they mean are not presented in game.

A player is given a small set of values for the AP and HE shell, and then presented with an "armour" viewer.

None of which make any sense unless you go outside the game/forums.

So, what I should have said was "not presented clearly" rather than "misleading".
