Default Armour piercing that disables vehicles

Hey

Ive searched the AAS thread but couldnt find anything.

Currently (0.86) when you fire AP rounds from an APC aganist a light vehicle, (such as a humvee) it doesnt take many shots before you have blown it up.

This is what I am suggesting: that when you fire armour-piercing against a light-vehicle you will make it unable to move (blown the engine block appart). If you want to blow it up, you have to use HE rounds. I would like this to happen especially for APC rounds, but also maybe for tank rounds. So if you want to blow a light vehicle appart you have to use the HEAT round. I dont know if it should also work like this for tanks, APCs, saying that AP rounds only disables the vehicle. The difference however, between a tank and APC and a light vehicle, is that those vehicle carry alot of high explosive ammonition in it.

Also a question: currently, can you blow an APC appart by using a HEAT round? I havent tested for myself yet

tell you the truth AP rounds are made to destroy a vehicle. It uses a massive amount of force to push its way through the armour and destroy anything in its way, that includes ammunition. Often enough of a tank is hit badly enough that it can cause the entire tank to brew up.

if you miss him... try, try again

I fail to see the point of this suggestion. What would you gain by making a tank/apc shoot a light vehicle twice...

I think the point is, that AP should be used against hard targets like in real life.
While HEAT is used against soft targets, wich includes jeeps.
If this could be impleted i would say, yeah this would make more realistic use of round i think.

But AP should kills anything that is above the APC's
And HEAT should be used to kill anything below APC's

When AP rounds hit a HMMWV they would not only penetrate it, but due to the big pressure (and therefore big heat accumulation) it would kill everyone inside it.
Limiting the effectiveness of AP rounds just because the gunner don't know when to use them is ridiciulous.

But I think it would make sense if 12.7 mm NATO would cause that effect. Although I am not sure if it is able to penetrate the engine block of a HMMWV.

At the moment, AP rounds are more effective than HE against any vehicle. So basically usage is HE for infantry and AP for everything else. Now, at first this seems unrealistic but if you stop and think it's actually perfectly alright. HE rounds tend to detonate on the surface of the vehicle whereas AP will penetrate and do huge damage to vehicle internals.

The point is to make the mod more realistic IMO. Isnt that the ideal of any suggestions in this mod? Though the main point is that you will need to choose you ammo type wisely.

Man, you should have written this suggestion for me, that is exactly what I mean. At least when HEAT stands for High Explosive Anti Tank. Though it should be renamed to HEAAPC (high explosive anti APC) IRL. I suppose its a tricky name though.

Good point Stu. Though I belive HE rounds would rather rip a vehicle appart.
