Hello, 

Just wondering, are these numbers on the first gun normal, they do not seem normal!

Shouldn't the damage with gold ammo be same and higher with He. There doesnt seem to be a buff with gold and He seems pointless!

"no point in HE" "HEAT damage should be same/higher"

 

So if it is pointless now, how pointless would it be if HEAT had the same damage?

 

That said, 102 mm is great for HE, especially 90 mm HE. Find your targets and make them suffer.

If not, your gold ammo has 250 mm, and with the good RoF that should be some good DPM.

Doesn't that gun have HESH/HEAT/HE as the ammunition choise? HE-based shells (cHEAT is not HE) tend to do more damage than regular shells, but with lower penetration. And having 100mm of HE penetration in a light tank is quite good actually.

First shell is indeed HESH. Second shell is HEAT, which has different mechanics so it doesn't work like HE.

The standard shells are already a HE type, while the gold ammo isn't. If it had AP shells they'd do 240 average damage as well.
