Playing my Atago, with her 203mm, I was getting a fair amount of shatters, so free-specced to IFHE which *seemed* to help. Is it really worth mounting IFHE to try and reduce shatters - even though the game blanks it out as a non-recommended CO skill for Atago COs? Or is the game-client right and the break-points for armour-vs-calibre such that the extra IFHE pen is insufficient to penetrate any additional armour schemes in the Tier8 battlegroup, making the extra pen overkill on stuff that it won't shatter on? Same question for Prince Eugen - who I'd prefer to be using to spam AP like a bawss, but don't always get the choice when presented with angled battleships. Going from 33mm to 66mm penetration seems like a significant improvement, and I seem to recall there being lots of ships with armour in the 60-70mm range that would suddenly become squishier to this? I'm assuming the game *is* actually right to discount IFHE on Azuma, as her big (310mm) guns don't seem to be giving me a significant number of shatters at all. Although, as a side question, are the armoured panels on her stern useful? Using her to kite seems feasible (especially given her speed), but if the most armoured part of her is still rubbish then that makes conservatively kiting circumstantially less desirable than just closing the distance.
