Right, so I just did some testing on the "new and improved" HEAP which now bumps 150mm and 152mm up beyond the 32mm threshold point to penetrate tier 8+ BB bow and tier 8-9 BB deck (Iowa is 38mm however) This was tested at approximately 13.6km on a bow-forward Izumo using a fully upgraded Cleveland. Important thing to note here is that the shell caliber, and therefore the HE penetration* is shared with the Belfast and Kutuzov, two very special CLs with smoke and 6" guns that will see tier 8-9 BBs. *HE penetration is caliber/6-1 (so 150mm is (150/25-1)=24mm HE pen), the exception being German BBs rocking the caliber/4 rule (which curiously applies to their 128mm and 150mm HE on their secondary guns for both cruisers and BBs). And yes, I tested a Nurnberg 150mm HE vs Colorado 25mm bow. It shattered for 0 dmg without HEAP. Control test without HEAP captain skill: Test using HEAP captain skill: Yeah, pretty devastating isn't it? Shaves a full minute off time to kill, and on cruisers sporting an even faster shell output on their 6" guns (Basically every tier 7-8 light cruiser and Mogami 155), the difference becomes even larger as it gives fire damage less time to catch up between reloads. Bonus content: Melting a bow forward Iowa with Gneisenau secondaries and HEAP (impractical but still amusing to watch a tier 7 kill a tier 9 with only secondaries in under 3 minutes) edit: I can't format for shit.
