The question is in the title...

 

Can High Explosives and other Explosives shells (HEP, HESH...) can overmatch armor?

 

Thanks for your answers

 

Cheers

No.

OvermatchEdit

If the AP or APCR shell's caliber is more than 2 times the nominal thickness of the armour...

....

In cases involving HE shells or external module hits, overmatch does not occur.

HE shells can do anything.

Bounced my WZ 120 HE shell off the Scorpion G turret today.

LSD is so yesterday, just play WOT for a mega trip...

If you didn't yet, you should check the wiki. It's a must-read for every (new) player...

The game sadly doesn't teach the kind of things you asked about.
