The game data is incorrect. The discussion is between Tiger 1 and the Panther. No one is disputing the Tiger 2's gun had
better armor penetration than the Panther.
Tiger I =92I think also the rounds available, had great value in real combat !
Tiger II =86
Crommwell = 64
KV I =111
IS II =28
Well, it's your design and you have the final say. This appears to be grasping at straws though.
By this criteria, the M36 and IS II would be extremely ineffective in terms of armor penetration when in fact the exact opposite was true.
I do understand the game data is a reflection of all aspects of the tank in battle, however, ammo loadout would have minimum effect imho. For example, the Tiger 1 has a greater hard armor defense than the Panther despite being slower and having less effective frontal armor but superior side armor. That is fair enough.
However, just looking at the M36 it has superior hard armor defense than the Panther despite having all-round inferior armor and actually being slightly slower than the Panther. Also, the M36 has vastly superior soft defense by the looks of it than all the medium tanks in the game of both sides, despite the fact it is open-topped.
I'll draw the curtain on my comments as to the data as it could end up being in the middle of a minefield. I will make my own adjustments.
