Hi all!

Please tell me that these 47mm rounds don't suck as much as they are right now. Please tell me there's a bug where they do almost no damage and randomly fly off in the wrong direction. I know Italian tanks sucked, yes. I know. I do know. But the guns themselves seem to do no damage to the side of a Grant (despite registering a hit), and it takes multiple FRONT hits to kill a Cruiser Mk.1, which tells me that it's only slightly better at penetration then a 20mm Pzgr39.

Were they that bad in reality?

They aren't bad,

Yes the only tanks you can take on frontally are all the crusader tanks, 2-3 hits would be enough.

But the grants can be taken out to the sides by shooting at the little door/port and 2 shots in the back kill it nicely.

Stuart same thing can not be destroyed frontally (except after 20 shots) but can be hit in the sides.

the gun is weak but when you can ambush or camp the enemy it is good cause of its fast reload speed.

played gazala with m13/40 only and go 42 kills and 6 deaths most kills were tanks. i shot so many grants in the ass ;) and crusaders are easy 2-3 shots and they are dead.

your job is so easy because of the tiger-like armour on it...

i notice the grant 75mm gun sucked alot , now the shells tends to bounce off a panzer IIIJ, it's still devastating if not bounced off though *like 1-2 shot(s) kill*

the M13/40 gun is very fine until she meet a thing heavier than grant, and utter hopeless when met a valentine.( well, run is the only option)
