Premium ammo tends to have a sligtly better velocity. Often I find myself tapping the "2" key when trying to hit the wheelies. 

When they are close, I tend to hit he "3" key.

How about you guys? Do wheelies cause more gold flying?

Yes but only for tanks that have more velocity on the 2 key. The gold ammo nerf is also gonna improve wheely lifespan.

only if it's APCR... HEAT is usually just as fast as normal AP or even slower... and no I don't think that a lot of people hit the 2 key when the see wheeled vehicles..

Many tend to hit the 3-key, though, even at T6.

 

(The M431 90mm HEAT round would be an exeption to the rule above, it (59-Patton, T95E2, Scorpion, HWK 30 and RU251) is typically faster than the standard option, close to "APCR speeds" (1145m/s).)

Depends. As I've done that vs lights for ages. As some tanks have terrible AP shell speed. And you want to take out that yolo scout before half your camping team gets lit. Same with wheelies. Tho.. the mid-tier wheels are not that tricky even with slow AP vs the tier X. But then again I've not seen a tier 9 or X in almost a week. But ofc only if I have APCR as gold. If it's HEAT. Or like on some Jap guns, AP even there. No point.

The guns that give my tier 8 Wheels issues are ofc those with APCR as normal ammo. Even the T71 has that. And the Swedish TD don't even have to lead much. And you missing by a mile, vs hitting his wheels even for less alpha. People will still do it I suspect.

People have said that about most of your premiums too. They are still there. So lets call it even.

You can call it even if you want.For me it's not.
Those vehicles are way too fast and they should not even be able to bounce a shell !
They need a serious speed nerf.

To be specific, after a certain threshold of target speed, size and distance. Shooting APCR or your faster shell is kind of necessary.

 

Doesn't matter though if it's a wheeled vehicle or a really fast/flat/small regular light tank. Yes such a thing exist but it isn't exclusive for dealing with wheeled vehicles.

I guess you didn't read the OP it's about shell velocity not pen or you simply don't know the characteristics of different shell types, take the the M26 Pershing as an example:

AP: 975 m/s

APCR: 1219 m/s

It's a heck of a lot easier to hit a fast moving target when your shell is almost 250 m/s faster, so loading APCR is quite a valid tactic to hit the WV's for the most part.
