womble Posted April 21, 2012 Share Posted April 21, 2012 So, I'm belatedly playing "Die Letzte Hoffnung", which is shaping up to be a nice campaign, and I find myself wondering if the "AP" designation of rounds for the enemy's 57mm ATGs and my Panther's 75mm Kanone actually means "Anti-personnel". In the first scenario, well over half my casualties were caused by the Americans' Ordnance QF knock-offs ( ). And that's not counting the ones behind armour in the Panther and Pz4 that got offed. 5 casualties were caused by the groundburst of ricochets. It's a good job there wasn't any HE available to the Amis for their little sniper rifles or things would have gotten messy. And in the second scenario, a Panther's AP (the kitty is immobilised and if it gets recovered, the ammo bins will be refilled, so I've been letting rip with every available round...) ricocheted off the steeple, and landed in the middle of a field with a few teams in (I've neutralised their indirect fires and the field wasn't overlooked), killing 4... I don't think I've had a Panther HE round kill more than 4 at once; I know the Panther's HE was historically underpowered, but it should be better than the bursting charge in an AP round. Anyway. AP: it stands for Anti Personnel as well as Armour Piercing... 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
