ID:0049936 23/Oct/2016 Unique HE shell penetration behavior (M103 HE-M356)

The M103 is the only tank with a HE that varies penetration on slopes/range:

Spoiler

The penetration varies between 45mm and 39mm, all the other HE shells always have the same penetration no matter the angle or distance, this shell should have 45mm under all circumstances

Here is how the HE penetration is calculated on WT (At least AFAIK)

Spoiler

I noticed the HE penetration values are directly gotten by 100g of TNT or equivalent = 1mm of pen so 4650g of tnt = 46.5mm of penetration minus 1mm used on all he shells the penetration would be 45.5mm

 

To demonstrate this actually applies to the game and the angle of attack and slope actually matters to this very special HE shell here are some screenshots and a replay of a arcade match, I specifically played with HE for this bug report:

 

Here is a shot to the roof of the turret a Tiger II H (40mm 77ºv):

Spoiler

I played arcade because the penetration marker, as you can see the marker is red, it doesn't even have a hitcam because I didn't damaged anything

Penetration test on 40mm plate on a usermade mission:

Spoiler

The test was made on the jagdtiger, first pic shows the plate itself, the second shows the minimum angle to NOT penetrate that plate with this HE and the third and fourth shows minimun angle to penetrate this plate:

Penetration test on 45mm plate on a usermade mission:

Spoiler

First and Second pics shows the non-penetration of the frontal 45mm 49ºv slope of the SU-85 and the third and fourth show the penetration of the 45mm 19ºv side plate

I hope that all this was not in vain, it took me more than 1 hour :p

The file is too big, I literary erased every old attachment with only the .wrpl and the .txt of this post left but the limit is still 44.88mb and the .clog file uncompressed is 46.5mb

 

Do you want me to upload the uncompressed .clog on a external service like mega?

You should be able to replicate the issue and generate a smaller clog file.
