PSA: Penning swedish TDs
« on: February 14, 2017, 05:07:47 PM »

So apparently HEAT has a greater ricochet angle (85 vs 70) than AP and it is possible to pen the Swedish TDs frontally VERY easily with it.
If you have a low caliber gun, this is super helpful.

Here's some screenshots:

When he's looking straight at you, his armor's only angled at 80%, which heat can easily pen

Pretty close to the max angle you can pen heat at. Note that the effective armor is ~160mm and t8s often have 200mm+ of heat pen.

.. Armor view of the situation. Even at that angle, his UFP is pennable by heat.

Sorry if y'all already know this, I just found out today and wanted to let everyone know.

Problem is that the Tier 10 variant has the shield up front to counter HEAT. You'd have to loop shots over the shield in order to pen. Theoretically anyways.

also since the sides are typically 30mm thick if you have any sort of side shot you can generally overmatch it
