HESH acts the same way for HE and HEAT and has a hissy fit whenever it hits spaced armour.

The same way you can't penetrate Sheridan's hull with HE because it has a thin layer of spaced armor all over the hull.

HESH, as HE and HEAT detonate on impact. If you hit a spaced armour or external module, you HESH will immediately detonate, losing half of the damage potential. I see nothing wrong here.

You do know that if you hit ANY module. Even wheels. Splash damage is what you get vs a full pen. Be it wheeled or even the side of an IS-3 hitting his wheels or tracks. Heck the lowest I've done with the 183 is 4 damage. Hitting the tip of the barrel of a T-10.

Would like to see in real life what a gun like the FV's (most likely naval gun) would do to a slighly armored 20-ton wheeled veichle. Perhaps the wheels would land like 500 meters away?

You mean you would actually be able to find bits of the WV ???????

 

Wargamming are completely insane they are destroying this game, seen it before in other games company get that big they think they are the only ones who know anything, completely ignore the player base who then start drifting off till all of a sudden one day the company wake up go to work and find a closed sign on the door.

 

Shame this game HAD ! the ability to last for a very very long time but UTTER GREED ! wins out and in the end the company make less money.

Had worse.

JPE100 vs EBR 105

~150m + AP shell = just a damaged wheel, not even disabled.

 

This is beyond ridiculous. This is why people hate the WV's. The speed, magic extra auto aim mode, insane camo, insane soft gun stats etc. are all irrelevant to me; it's just the stupid damaged wheel mechanics. 

Make them behave exactly like a normal tank, i.e.  hit the wheel, tanks stops, and there will be no more problem and they'll be fairly well balanced.
