This may help with the basic aiming and a stationary target. Also use HE, if multiple HE shells are available, pick those with the highest damage, even if they cost more silver. Gold ammo is mostly not a viable choice.

haha thanks. he shells is what i have only haha french tier IV tanks  could of clutched so many games not even joking. las t game i played shot a hetzer in front weak spot with a nice steady 5.5 aim time big hole in front critical hit with about 160 damage you should see the hole in the front of the tank with the high exploses hit too. Says 345 to over 500 damage every angle iv hit has been a critical hit. someone is stopping me from hitting the full wack clearly im a guns for hire shop left with nothing but critical hits yes he shells do damage with critical hits but its not right to only hit them thanks for the advise but clearly somthing fishy about my game atm haha

Well, that could explain your bad performance. Such connection methods usually result in very high pings and sometimes also packet loss issues. So it's lag that hold you back. The only fix for that would be getting a decent internet connection that is not wireless.

 

What ping do you have while playing and is your lagmeter green or red?

HE only does full damage if it penetrates, and HE has low penetration, dont expect to be getting constant full damage hits shooting the front of enemy tanks.

Big hole clearly penetrated just keeps saying critical hit for 35% of damage then 95%-100%

Those penetration marks appear even when HE hits but does not penetrate. They are not reliable to determine if the hit penetrated or not. You should also switch from percentage to HP display, so you know how much damage you exactly did.

 

As has been already mentioned HE (High Explosive) shells have very low penetration values. Non penetrating shells do less damage.

The quick and dirty formula is: (Damage / 2) - (Armor value * 1.1)

If i understood you correctly you have a Tier 4 french SPG? It has an average damage of 450. Let's do some math with a KV-1 by hitting it on the front of the turret:

(450 / 2 ) - (110 * 1.1)

225 - 121 = 104 damage.

A KV-1 with the upgraded turret has 640HP, so that 104 damage would equal ~16% of it's health.

It gets somewhat more complicated with splash damage, when the HE shell does not directly hit.

 

You can read more into detail how HE works in the official Wiki:
