I found that no artillery has any anti-armor value.

Why? Historically, artilleries were quite effective against light-to-medium tanks, destroying the lighter vehickles and damaging the medium ones. Obviously, they were of marginal utility against heavier chassis, but still they were a very VERY useful tool if no dedicated AT weapon was at hand.

Am I missing something, since I actually remember armored vehicles taking losses from artillery strikes? Does Artillery units have an "hidden" AT value?

Half of the AP is used as AT ... now I have to look for that in the Manual ...

Ah, thanks, so there was indeed an hidden AT value.
