Why can't I get HEAT rounds for the Sherman/Patton line of tanks? I have read that the 76mm's on the later Sherman's used HEAT rounds.

Which Sherman are you speaking of?

Most people prefer APCR over Heat. Why would you rather use HEAT?

Rather have APCR over HEAT. The HEAT keeps pen at distance but that's usually the only benefit it has in most scenarios.

APCR is way better than HEAT. HEAT can be stopped by spaced armor, or if it hits tracks. 

 

APCR is much better since it flys faster and doesn't care if its spaced armor or tracks.

The only guns on American mediums that I recall having HEAT are the 105mm derp guns. These can be mounted on all mediums from the M4 Sherman to M46 Patton. However, it IS still a derp gun, which has rather poor accuracy. This is even more problematic for HEAT. So yes, you can technically fire HEAT rounds on American mediums, though I would strongly argue against relying on this HEAT for reliable damage past tier 5. Its pen is barely over 100mm, so there is little point to carrying it past the M4A3E8 or Jumbo, respectively.

Prefer APCR,  over HEAT. Wish we HESH rounds.
