Both WZ 111 5A & M48 Patton's HEAT ammo cost 4k8 cred/shot.

 

But when you look at T92 LT (Also M41 Bulldog/double T71s), 210 pen HEAT with 150 alpha... 5k6 credits, really??

WG likes when you shoot premium ammo. And if you shoot much, you might need premium account or tanks, which means you pay WG money. So an income for WG.

You completely missed his point. He is asking why prem Ammo of a t8 lt with 150 dmg costs more than Prem ammo of Wz1115A with 490 Dmg on t10.

and you are forced to load gold ?  you might not say no thanks  35 more pen for 20fold the price ?

 

chi-ri for example is rather bad at premium ammo to  skill Type5/183/stage 2 beat them easy at costs and if you want it insane just look at the price you pay for a full gold T3 mg tank loadout like for the pz 1c and these tanks couldnt possible score high damage numbers (total) since thew whole team might just be about 3-4k hp combined

 

while  a T10 match might offer you 30k+ damage to do (team of 15 maus tanks would offer you 45k hp)

Higher prem shell cost makes WG even more money.

Especially when the premium round is so bad (210 HEAT) that many will just not pen, so even more are needed.

It shouldn't be a surprise the ammo for the WZ111-5A is cheaper, it is made in China. Duh!

Premium ammo is still too cheap.

 

Prices should be much higher, maybe when we will see less Premium ammo spammers...

You coukld ask the same for the regular ammo, the two first ones cost 1K per shell, while the third is only 270 per shell. The inverse of prem ammo.

 

Shell prices are quite inconsistent. In general: bigger caliber, bigger price (but this isn't always the case, as seen by the regular ammo price)
