In looking the equipment file, I am confused by some of the variation shown in the AP rating for given weapons -- I mean the variation shown between their direct and indirect fire use.

The period in question is mid-20th century. Following are some quotes from file. The first figure is the direct fire rating; the second figure is the indirect fire rating.

Note that the direct fire AP rating for tanks includes a machine gun's effect. This effect (either +12 or +27 to the rating) has been subtracted out in the data below.
75mm		66		90
90mm		150		96
100mm		196		116
105mm		128		128
122mm		179		179
128mm		196		196
150mm		260		260
152mm		220		220

What is interesting is that the final five sets are identical for both applications. And this makes the first three really stand out. Why the variation between the direct fire and indirect fire rating?

Cheers
