I am doing the the damage internal modules missions for Chimera

 

Back in the day, these were simple, load HE and off you go

 

BUT, i am spamming HE across all tiers (7-10) and all classes and getting very few module damaging shots

 

Firstly, is this not the right approach, and secondly is anyone else noticing this ?

 

cheers

I think you are doing it right but I found it as hard as you do.

Try and focus on hitting light and artys then you will have a high chance of penning them and causing massive dmg to internal items.

If you have to shoot at heavier tanks then aim for the driver hatch or the commander hatch.


 

You could try and set someone on fire too.


 

Best of luck to you

It's a bit of a myth that HE does more module damage, especially internal modules.

 

Unless you have a high pen HE shell and get penetrating shots you are better off using AP.

 

Or take the easy option and play arty.

Play KV-2 or T49. 

 

You need a high calibre HE round. Shoot targets with thin armor or on top of engine decks, bottom of tanks.

Have you tried retraining your gunner with the dead-eye perk for the duration of the mission?

thanks - i think the lightly armoured could be beneficial, thinking about it.

 

Thanks to all replies, good food for thought :-)

I am trying this one too. (Chinese and Soviet)

 

At least tier 7 tanks.

So no KV2.

 

I am trying the tier 7 arty S-51 but i have the small gun and a crap crew.

How about the SU 152 can that mount an HE gun?

Chinese high tier TD's

I am grinding xp on the KV3 for the double barrel line so i might spam some HE in that. Its a tall tank so I might have some luck penning engine decks.

 

Good luck

unsure for what nation it is (keep mixing up missions between sets :hiding:) but did most of them in arty pretty easely, things with a pretty fast reload work pretty well, just spam paperish tanks over and over and you should be able to ruin their crew

 

other tanks like su152 should work aswell, but you quite need a big caliber gun otherwise you might aswell spam AP and try get crits that way

Managed it with the S51. A surprise because some of the crits were blind so i did'nt know until the end.

 

 

Just finished the Geman/Japanese version of this with JGPZ100.

Lots of HE shells :)
