Is it recommended to install IFHE on Moskva?

Why would you IFHE 220mm guns? IFHE is meant for smaller caliber guns with less penetrative ability no?

To answer the OP's question, unless you really want to spend 4 captain points for the ability to HE pen the deck armour of some American BBs, the answer is no.

Yes, IFHE is a must on any ship. The higher the gun caliber the more damage you get.

Ref: Old Notser videos. 

i use IFHE on fiji and edinburgh, they become sorta like usn cruiser with heal and smoke

also use IFHE on iron duke, it become a conqueror at T5

true story bro!

Hi, this is Notser,

This time I will play as IFHE Moskva, which I will show you, is benefical.

 

Jokes aside, not Moskva tho, but IFHE Henri IV is a no joke.

Moskva stock Alpha Piercing HE=37mm

IFHE Moskva=48.1mm

At normal MM this allows penetrating

N.Car weather deck 37mm

Alabama weather deck (37 or 38mm IIRC) 

Atago weather deck 41mm

Iowa weather deck and mid section side plating 38mm

Missouri weather deck and mid section side plating 38mm

Montana weather deck and mid section 38mm

Painfully, IFHE 220mm cannot penetrate 50mm plating (high tier KM BB&part of Yamato weather deck and Khabarovsk)

We are on the verge of greatness, we are this close

Similar results for normal 203mm HE.

If you truly hate these BBs, sure you can pick it, it does improve your efficiency at tearing them apart. But do you consider it worth four captain points and reduced efficiency against other ships? If yes you can pick it, but if you want a Kutuzov/tech tree share captain, I would suggest a Kutuzov+Chapayev or Kutuzov+Dimitri

 

And a simple suggestion, use a calculator and armor viewer, IFHE questions are easily solvable on one’s own. If you still can’t decide, go PT would help you solve captain build problems.
