Building strength

Are there any data on how many rounds of different calibers (or at least 75, 88, 122 mm) required to destroy a wall and a whole buildings of different types?

What building is more tough? Modular or individual? One store or multistory? Is any matter in "wooden" vs "brick" building?

AFAIR this data was very determined in good all CMBB times. What is for now?

You might have to set up a test to find out.

I do know that the 'barn' category of buildings is easier to destroy and provides very poor cover for troops inside it.

Also, different types of 75mm guns, for example, have different amounts of explosive in their HE shells, so that is another factor to consider.

Modular are tougher. Larger is tougher. A co is correct that different models of any given calibre might have different HE effectiveness. The German KwK42 l/70 had unimpressive HE performance, compared to the shorter barrelled 75s that were its contemporaries, and the 17lbr (a 76mm gun) had worse HE than the Russian 76. I've not seen anything about whether the longer 88mms were less useful as HE-chuckers than the shorter ones, though.
