    Can someone please tell me the difference between these two types of HEAT shells and when / how I should use them? Nothing in the manual...very little info in Wiki. Thanks.

    The main difference of the type A was early production and had a none reliable fuse ~70%
    Type B/C is more advanced shells where fuse reliability is ~90%
    HEAT shell were made for a self-defence activity only. It does when u out of AP shells then use HEAT. This shell had SdKfz.251/9, Pz.III/N, StuG III C/D.
    HEAT shell works like APC(sabot) shell and has two main features to compare with APC:
    - fire effect
    - less penetration
    In common case APC/HEAT has a needle effect. It does the shell was not designed to destroy the tank, but stop him. Shoot at gunmask, engine, fuel(HEAT), wheels.
    HEAT shell has a low speed, thus it is not precise shot.
    In the next update some HEAT shells will be re-adjusted to provide more penetration ~(10-20)% more.
