Jagdpanther Bouncing E8 Sherman

Hello,

Recently had a game where a fully upgraded armor doctrine E8 sherman was capable of bouncing the Jagdpanthers gun. I believe it's a bug from the received penetration buffs the shermans had received and I think it should be patched so E8 shermans are garaunteed penetrations for the Jagdpanthers gun.

Hi.
Are you saying the Easy Eight constantly bounced the 8,8cm Kwk 43? At what range?

Here's the replay, not sure what the time of incident was. I also had an issue during this game with a different unit, on multiple instances the wespe on the south side would not fire its long range barrage (I think its called FERN shells, don't use it often enough to remember the name). I was shooting at a 25 pounder, sometimes with vision and sometimes without, but the unit would just sit in place without firing despite the UI showing that the barrage was in progress. Barnes didn't even know I had arty until I started using the airburst on some closer targets so I assume nothing happened on his side, as the 25 pounder I targeted was still at full health and firing regularly. Will make separate post for the sake of organization. I think the normal barrage and airburst worked as intended.

Actually, it wasn't even fully upgraded.

I rarely get the extra armor upgrades, for them, actually.
