Seriously I don't understand why it doesn't get one. And it would be quite useful. I'm thinking something like 410 alpha with 40-50 pen. Similar to the PZ 4H and VK 3001H

If you go for the stock gun it does have the option for HE, used to use top gun but pen is seriously lacking even when premium is used.

So switched back and now use HE exclusively, at least it will do damage now.

Agreed. Ridiculous that the top gun is worse than the stock.

This is especially true since the main purpose of the vehicle was to provide infantry support flinging big HE-shells...  which is why it was named Infantrikanonvagn (Infantry gun wagon in literal translation).

There's four people in the posts before yours that disagree, but in fairness I don't mind having some other tank's unhistorical derp gun removed instead.

Took me 37 battles to move on.  Seems like yet another non-issue.

I used top gun because it was the better gun.
HE would be a nice addition. But not needed.

The tank is already fairly decent, though hard to play.

I do agree that it needs an HE shell. But not with that alpha, as it's not a pure derp gun as such here. As the derp guns on the Pz 4H has 104 HEAT pen with gold, not 140. And their HEAT ammo does 350, not 300. So HE with 350 alpha would compensate it enough. And 38 to 40 would be more then enough vs the 53 the 105 derps has. As even their ROF is higher. Because they have 0.55 dispersion. 103 don't.

Gotta be honest, once you get used to the gun, the shell speed and curve of the shell. It's not a bad tank.

On the contrary, the Ikv 103 was a PURE derp-gun, with some surplus HEAT-shells thrown in for self-defence in extreme cases.
