[1.97.1.75] German 2cm SPAA should not have Pzgr. 40 APCR rounds

Issue: German 2cm SPAA have access to 2cm Pzgr. 40 shells but these shells were not issued to FlaK units.

 

Affected Vehicles:

  • Flakpanzer I
  • Flakpanzer 38
  • Wirbelwind

 

 

According to the German Army Ammunition Manual "Merkblatt 22/1 Munitionsmerkbuch"

http://michaelhiske.de/Wehrmacht/Heer/M_HEER/Merkbl_22/22_01/Deckbl.htm

 

The 2cm Pzgr 40 APCR shell is only issued to Tanks (Pz.Kpfwg.) and Armored Scout cars (Pz.Sp.Wg.)

While 2cm Flak guns (single and quadrupel mount) are only issued the usual AP-T, HEI-T and HEI shells.

Solution: Remove the 2cm Pzgr. 40 APCR shell from the affected vehicles.

 

PS: Don't hit me with "they could fire these shells so they should have them" logic. Early US planes also don't have acess to API and API-T ammunition unlike late war planes, even though they could fire the same ammo.

The Pz IV C also doesn't have access to the HEAT shell type C, even though it uses the same gun as later models.

Hello,

 

Thank you for your interest in helping to improve the game.

Can You clarify the source of the information? It's a website, which is generally not considered by devs as source, but as I understand it, it's a document/book in a digital format?

Can You provide those information from the original source?

 

Regards

The Tech Mod Team
