What will change during CT2?
Important: The effective penetration of the HE shell after passing through spaced armor will be reduced. In the previous version of the mechanics, the drop in armor penetration depended on the thickness of the screen. Now, the reduction will depend on the thickness of the screen and a multiplier.
Our main goal since the first Sandbox was to reduce the damage dealt to tanks frontally and succeeded. Now, we want to balance the penetration chance and amount of damage done to more vulnerable areas on a vehicle, usually covered by spaced armor (screens, external modules and tracks, for example). Now, the probability of penetrating the main armor after the HE shell penetrates the screen will greatly decrease, especially for vehicles with weak side armor. Therefore, the likelihood of receiving a lot of damage when penetrated by a HE shell will also be lower. The effective penetration of the HE shell after passing through spaced armor is reduced by the thickness of the spaced armor, times three. For example:
- In CT1, a HE shell with 100 mm penetration once it passed through 20 mm of spaced armor was left with 80 mm of penetration to the main armor.
- In CT2, a HE shell with 100 mm penetration after it passes through 20 mm of spaced armor will be left with 40 mm of penetration to the main armor.
