Hello.
I have noticed (and probably so have you) that the default ammo load on the ISU and Object (De Mighty BL-10)(and possibly other high caliber TD guns, don't know) consists of mostly HE Shots with very little AP to them. I just accidentally entered my first battle in 704 without checking them because they are mostly alright for me. (Un)luckily I died before I needed the extra Shots, but It's really annoying.
What do you think?

A lot of tanks have a default ammo load out that doesn't suit me. Can't help it really, I never buy ammo when I buy a tank, I load them manually to get the load out I want.

DEfault ammo setup is almost always BS.
I guess its from "historical information". Those guns were indeed widely used with HE shells because you simply didnt need AP. There are storys about blast off turrets of Tiger tanks hit by 152mm HE shells.

Implement that And I'm all for it!  :glasses:

But let's be realists here, It's not too much of a big deal, but it could be a decent addition to the game!  :playing:

On my Object 704 I mostly just use AP rounds, only for far far away targets 400-500m away I (sometimes) use HE.
In the past I used HE rounds more often, but since HE was nerfed to almost useless... AP is the way for normal distances. When a HE does hit now... it almost doesn't do any damage hell if it does any damage out of tracking or damaging a gun or something.

Bouncing shells with HE or 50 damage really sucks with the BL-10.  :sceptic:  :angry:  :amazed:
