I have done some tests with tactical air units against armour. It's a bit odd. When I check the Weapons Data, it says that 1000lb MC Bomb has an anti-armour factor of 138, whereas the 8 x RP-3 SAP Rocket has 0. Still, all the trials I make shows the rocket coming out on top; roughly being five times as effective as the bomb. Am I reading the data wrong? Shouldn't the number be as high as possible to achieve the best result?

The US P-47Ds used HVAR rockets which could penetrate 4ft. of reinforced concrete, used during the normandy campaign. That could blow any tank i think.

The RP-3 SAP i do not know about this one, seems british made. I am curious to see the answers.

Afaik, anti-armor is used for the HA hits. Rockets have penetration values used in AP hits.

Micheljq: I can't see that this rocket is in the game.

Helpless: Don't understand your answer, but it might have to do with my question being vague. I will look around a bit to see what I can find.

No, is there anywhere one can see bombs, rockets and such? There's nothing in the Commander's report.

They are under equipment->weapons (switch on the top).

Found it. But the anti-armor efficiency is still '0' for this rocket, although its actual proficiency seems good. Just a little confused.

Is it the HEAT value? That could explain it.

All penetration values are used to hit armor type targets (AP). HE also can hit AFVs, in such case anti-armor value is used.
