So, does that mean the Firefly Mk I now has 640 rounds of 20mm ammunition in total? If so...

HALLELUJA!!!

I spaded it a long time ago, but for everyone else it is now much easier to fight effectively in it... 60(or was it 70?) rounds per gun with no backup weapon was hilariously insufficient and meant that it couldn't engage any soft targets(or light pillboxes with AP rounds) without becoming totally defenseless if some enemy fighter comes by for a delicious Firefly snack. Not to mention that 60 RpG of the british Hispano Anti-Ground Belt wasn't even enough to kill a single light pillbox!

 

By the way... why is it that the british AP shell has lower penetration than the US AP-I shell on what is essentially the same gun? :dntknw:

I was unloading on them on, Midway I think it was, with my A26 and 14 50cals got 3 "hits" and not one destroyed! Figured something was wrong, especially since some maps, the LC's still seemed to have normal damage requirements.

HALLELUJAH MAKE MK 103 GREAT AGAIN

 

Seriously, I had just gotten the He 219 yesterday to see what all the fuss was about, only to find that neither minengeschoss nor HVAP from the MK 103 was even capable of scratching the stalinium boats. After confirming the issue in the B6R3, it took my hatred for Norway to a whole new level.

 

I hope this doesn't mean that the boats will retain their survivability when hit in 80% of their hitbox. That would still make the adamantium boats stronger than heavy tanks. I'm not sure why the landing craft DM even needed to be changed from what it was before.
