The new premium tank destroyer has an interesting feature that has never been noticed before.
We are talking about the armor penetration with special APCR ammo (APDS Kl / 14). Almost all shells in the game, except HEAT and HE, have a reduced armor penetration depending on the distance traveled by the shell. In the game, this distance is between 50 and 500 meters. The maximum armor penetration, even for sub-caliber shells, does not drop by more than 60 mm among all tanks in the game. In the case of the GSOR 1008, the penetration of the APCR shell may decrease by 101 mm depending on the distance.
Average armor penetration with an AP shell: 226-211 mm.
Average armor penetration with an APCR shell: 321-220 mm (depends on distance: 50-500 m).
When firing a shot up to 250 meters away from the enemy, the armor penetration can drop to ~ 270 mm. RNG should also be taken into account, as it affects the penetration by +/- 25%. Ultimately, it all significantly affects the ability to penetrate the opponent, and it is worth taking into account when shooting at more distant targets.
