Centurion 7/1, just researched and installed the 105mm, the premium ammo is a HESH round with 210 penn, less then the 268 APCR normal rounds. My first tank with HESH, when do you use them?
HESH rounds, when do you use them?

With 480 Avg Dmg and 210 pen I would think to treat it like a higher penning HE round. Use when you have a sure pen shot on a flat piece of side or rear armor for that extra punch.
Least that's what I've learned from Google in the last few minutes...

Never used the British HESH much but I'm a big fan of the HEP on the RU and German Bulldog, I think I bring 10 rounds.

I tend to use the HESH rounds on enemy mediums, lights and arty. There are a few heavies it works on as well. It comes down to knowing your opponent. I carry all 3 ammo types on the 7/1 and use them all in almost every battle. It is one of my favorites because it's ammo choice is actually important.
