Ok this might be a stupid question..but how the hell do you know these numbers without having to refer to notes? Is there a printable table that you can refer to, or do most of you memorise this data?

Overmatching bow armor  is  calculated shell caliber/14.3

HE Penetration is 1/6 of shell caliber , some having 1/4 Penetration(German cruiser and RN BB(?))

Ship armour of different ship wise.. most is experience built over-time playing it and learning   the vulnerability of the ships played

HE pen for both primary and secondary guns is in the "Artillery" section.

 

AP pen is far more esoteric and needs third party sources to find out, like https://wowsft.com/arty?lang=en

There is also auto-ricochet angle and all that jazz.

That's the overmatch formula, not "penetration" in general  :fish_book:

This isn't AP pen, it's AP overmatch.  Overmatch is when an AP shell will not do an angle check and so the shell will not bounce regardless of angle.

AP pen is different for each gun/shell combo, and reduces with distance.  This superb tool here will graph the pen curve of every ship in the game, as well as the flight time and impact angle curves as well.

Edit: @Paladinum beat me to it by two minutes!  :Smile-_tongue:

Thanks for the info guys, and now I have a good reason to connect a second screen 😊 don't know why I didn't think of that earlier.
