No, no no. What you're looking for a duds.

 

Also, HE shells don't overpen ... and now you just reminded me of that guy who argued that people shouldn't use IFHE on the Akizuki because the 30% increased penetration would cause the HE to overpenetrate.

Was there some mysterious announcement that I've missed? Or is this a random senseless rant?

 

Torp is like HE - explodes on impact, thus no overpens, quite obviously

I was going to post a meme, but El2aZeR already beat me to it so I'll just quote him instead

Now Mang, read your own post. "AP bombs bounce / overpen / shatter" - bcuz it's AP - quite obviously

 

He explodes on impact, torps explode on impact. AP can bounce, AP can lack penetration, AP can have too much penetration & velocity, AP can strike too little armour to arm the fuse. I'm surprised it wasn't obvious to you

Obviously, they should make AP torpedoes. Torpedoes that bounce if they hit at too steep an angle, that overpent destroyers and swim on and when they hit a broadside, they ignore the torpedo protection.

Torpedo can citadel. It's why when you eat a torpedo, it's often hard to get the damage healed back. The only reason it is hard to realise is because torpedos always deal full damage, unless mitigated by the torpedo belt.

But looking at your past postings, boring rants are all you do, this is no different. You post to troll and little else.

It can. Not sure if damage wise - hits on bow / stern still seem to do full dmg, but check the healability.

 

Take a BB (by far easiest to see as Nelson / Lion / Conqueror, might be relatively easily visible also on Colorado) and get some friend / clanmate / whoever go against you in a RN CL (or Gallant). One single-launch torpedo on the bow or stern - check how much you can repair. One torp midships - check how much you can repair now. They differ, and it looks like the ratio is the same as penetration (bow / stern) and citadel hit (midships), altho I haven't done exact calculations

AP bombs have a time delayed fuse. They do not explode on impact but penetrate the weaker deck armour due to inertia and explode inside... Though since AP shells and bombs both have explosive fillers, they could actually both cause fire... :Smile-_tongue:
