But at least from Vietnam on HEAT rounds were found to make satisfactory substitutes for HE. Of course, caliber mattered.

On Donbas too. You can see frequently how both sides are actively using RPG-7/22/26 and SPG-9 HEATs on enemy in buildings. But an explosion of HEAT inside structure dirffers itself from explosion on the ground. When HEAT impact the wall, it penetrates and creates additional fragments of wall material, creates dust cloud and suppresses troopers in close compartment. Explosion of HEAT under open sky  just going in one direction - to the ground with some minor fragments aside.

I agree I recall seeing a number of videos from Syria, of different incidents, showing a packed group of up to a dozen or so SAA personal getting struck right on point by a large caliber ATGM, but suffering few casualties...
