Make the 20mm & 37mm Great Again

Postby Walderschmidt » 09 Nov 2019, 23:22

So, .50 cals across the board got standardized and in some cases buffed to be more in line with the damage that .50 cals do.

So my question is, why not do this with 20mm guns since they feel like slightly better machine guns - hell, even the Flakvierlings barely feel like slightly better than one 20mm. Currently, they feel like they are underperforming given what I know about them and .50 cal having done a bit more homework.

For context:
Pentration tables for German guns 7.62mm to 3.7cm.PNG

Most US halftracks have up to 12mm of armor, M8 had up to 8-15mm of armor, Chafees had up to 25mm of armor (38mm on the turret), and M3/M5 Stuarts had up to 51mm/16-38mm (depending on source you use).

Perhaps you could give all 20mm two settings - AP and HE.

AP rips through vehicles while HE rips through infantry/buildings/damages tracks? A small timer between each to prevent hotswitching.

What do you guys think?

Yeah, i was about to make the same topic. I would give AP and HE swap for 20 mm guns, 37 and 40 mm Bofors guns.

The single 20 mm is currently more behaving like a 40 mm gun while the quad 20 mm more like a HMG42 with AP rounds active.
