When the loader has the intuition skill/perk that says he/she can change the ammo without reloading, why does it only work now and then?

I like to derp people in the face with the derp gun on Borsig (works on most heavily armored tanks) and its very useful to switch between HE and Heat without going trough 16s reload.

It is a percentage chance only and not guaranteed I think.

Because it's a ten 17 percent or so chance that it actiates, as stated in the skill info.

 

 

The Intuition Perk creates a 17% chance that the Loader will magically and instantly switch the shell type to the best choice for doing damage, regardless of whether the gun was loaded and ready to fire or in the middle of the loading process. The effect of this Perk is cumulative, so if a vehicle has two Loaders and both Loaders have this Perk then the chance for a switch will increase by 34%. The Perk only works if more than one ammo shell type is on-board and available. After the Perk takes effect, the gun must be completely reloaded before it can take effect again. Note, that the perk will only take effect if you yourself switch ammo types, it will not do so automatically on its own.

Usefull for tanks with 2 loaders, as chance doubles to roughly 1/3rd

 

Edit: sorry didn't read post above mine

It's really so unreliable to rely on RNG (probably could've phrased that better...) for something practically useless, rather train an extra camo skill or repairs or bia or even fire extinguishing...etc.
