Any Total War fans out there? Humble is having a huge Total War Bundle Sale this weekend... https://www.humblebu...al-war-weekend/

Love TW! Have most of them... I suggest Medieval 2 ($5 is worth every penny)... my personal Fav. You can get all kinds of cool mods for Med2, including Skyrim, Game of Thrones and Middle Earth.

SGrant7 : (14 July 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Ohhhh... Middle Earth would be pretty awesome!

Vikinger : (14 July 2017 - 08:37 AM)

Although not related to a book or movie, the Stainless Steel mod is pretty EPIC too.

Holy Cow! Started grinding the Mauschen, and it is stupidly good. Seems like it is going to be one of my best tanks.

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?

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...

HESH/HEP is pretty great. Won't go through tracks or spaced armor though. I wouldn't use it often (except for the 183 or 4005...straight HESH), just like when you would use HE; vs. Borsigs or Waffles, maybe to really mess up LTs, and if you want to one shot most (maybe all) SPGs.

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.
