With 388mm maximum penetration probably
19:12 Added after 5 minute
Had to check it. Theres like 250mm armor in gunmantlet. Every tier x gun is going through that like hot knife through butter

There's parts where the mantlet overlaps with the turret which makes for a strong/thick armor combo, but it seems in this case the shell has hit more or less the weakest possible mantlet spot, close to the gunners view port (see that hole there?), with no extra armor behind it. And the angle was also kind of perfect, from your opponent's perspective obviously. So those ~310mm of base HEAT pen potential were enough to meld through.

I didn't say it was well aimed either... :P

But nevertheless, pretty much a perfect shot.

112 turret armor has 250mm spaced armoring. Behind that the turret has 0mm armoring. As lang as the spaced armor hasn´t any angle it won´t protect you against heat.

Also have to factor in that battle hits mod is sometimes inaccurate.

Ah...the good old argument of "when I hit, it's skill, when they hit, it's cheat", albeit in disguise.
