Posted by on

Summary:
* APCR, HEAT and APDS shells to tanks, SPGs and cannons.
* Armor has a longer viewrange (~100m) where you aim, which makes it more independent in combat against enemy armor.
* It is possible to zoom out about twice as much.
* Infantry is 1.5x more expensive.
* New maps, vehicles, tanks, skins and content in general.

ACPR
APCR shells have a better armor penetration than the standard AP shells. The German and Russian shells generally perform best over 80-100m, whereas the American counterparts are effective up to 120m. The supply of APCR shells is somewhat short for all of the armies, so these rounds should not be spent in vain against armored vehicles standard AP rounds can deal with.

HEAT
The HEAT shells is most common for the Germans. The HEAT round is vital for the short-barreled 75mm tank guns of the early Panzer IVs, since they can't penetrate the T-34 and Sherman medium tanks effectively without it. However, the HEAT shells have a poor accuracy at ranges over 100m, and they are not particularly useful for the long-barreled 75mm tank guns of the late war Panzer IVs.

APDS
The British APDS rounds -available for the 6-pdr and 17-pdr- have, like the American APCR shells, an effective armor penetration at 120-140m, och the supply is also good; except that the British tanks equipped with the 6-pdr and 17-pdr have plenty of APDS shells, they also have them in their supply trucks. However, the drawback of the APDS ammunition is that it, like the HEAT ammunition, lack accuracy at ranges over 100m.

Commentary on the "special shells"
It is worth mentioning that the Americans and British are stronger now than before because of their access to high-quality APCR & APDS rounds. These shells make them more competitive against the Germans and their heavy armor. The Germans are also better equipped in the early war against the Russians and their heavier armor (T-34 & KV), as a result of the good supply of HEAT shells for their short-barreled Panzer IVs and StuG IIIs.
