It's possibly because when you shoot him in the face the explosion would travel into the weaker armor on the top parts of the hull and do more damage that way.

frontal turret also has a couple of easier to penetrate spots that HE with a high penetration roll could get to

The "Police Bar" is still heavily armored. It has managed to bounce an IS4's 130mm at point blank facehugging range. Not just once, but several times in different games.

I estimate the Police Bar must have an unangled armor of like 200-220mm. T29's 105 have bounced off it.
============
Secondly, the T95 doesn't have 305mm of armor all over its front. I have done 150-200 HP damage to a T95 by HE'ing its face using the E100 15cm gun. Just don't hit the mantlet, that's all.

I have been able to get full damage with AP in a D-25T on the E100's "police bar", trust me, if it had armour, that gun wouldn't be able to penetrate it.

However I have noticed lately, I wont get a second shot in, and my damage per shot lately has been in the 6-700 mark using AP instead of the old 7-900 mark that I used to be getting, so I havent had the best luck with damage rolls lately

HeH

The Lowe Turret can take some punishment, if you can find a nice spot to sit you can hold out a while & listen to the incoming going "Plink" off your Turret all day.

Hey Pup, you de-railed your own E100 Thread mate ;)

I took out a T95 last night, with help from arty, 3 shots with HE into his face, just below the gun mantlet. About 400hp a shot. Great!  He was a bit far for AP to the hatch. He... bounced off me

And the other night I almost took out a Maus, AP to the turret as he was looking at me, first shot hit the gun mantlet, he was wriggling it around, 2nd shot got full damage. My mate in the IS4 got the last 2% of his HP.

Thanks for all the tips on where to shoot the Maus and T95.

I wasnt aiming to derail the thread. I was just pointing out to the poster above me that in my alternative tanks(IS-3, Lowe, E75, T29) I have no issues hitting the "Police bar". sometimes it bounces, but the majority of my shots that go there deal close to 90% of its potential damage, and thats worth the risk- for the first shot at least

Just joking mate.......

It seems the Police bar can bounce a shot if angled correctly, the other day I had locked horns with another E100, I fired 150mm AP right into the view finder port on the left side of the bar & must of ripped 40% off him, I had a square shot as he was pointed at me, next shot I put it in the same place, right into the gaping hole where his view finder used to be only to see it bounce, at this time his Turret was angled.
I need to remember that.

yeah, I have noticed unusual bounces, but they have been almost too random for me to count as something circumstantial. I mean, if the E100's lower glacis is exposed, shoot that after the police bar at least once, and I do mention that rotating the turret helps you in bouncing the shell, its the only solution to that issue

Having a late one mate?

I had my rear end handed back to me 3 times tonight, twice in the E100 & once in the Maus, all my fault, being to aggressive & overextending, worst was 4 hits & death in the E100, I pushed on through only to find 2 704's with the big sticks attached & a T30 25 yards in front of me, after 3 almost simultaneous hits in the lower glacis I was 20%, managed to get one into the T30 & ripped about 30% off his Lower glacis before the next shot killed me, the other 2 games were very similar lol.

One thing I have found, bounce with AP seems fairly consistent from about 250yds on, that's when I'll change to HE.
Personally I don't have an issue with the accuracy, seems fine to me, I know a lot of posts have said different but it may stem down to crew training in the end.
