    Amusing Russian Bias

    So lets just say Russian Bias doesn't exist. If it doesn't how did my KV-2 (Zis-6) kill a Panther F from over .75 km away. I shot it through it's lower glacis. It has an effective thickness of 210 to 215mm of armor. It was either an unintended hack or Russian Bias. So yeah...

    Lower glacis was in a less steep of an angle?

    Best Russian bias proof is the Tu-4 - B29 debacle.

    Gaijin refuses to add B29 with 20mm tailgunner cuz it would be too op.

    Adds Tu-4 with far better firepower. Bigger bombload etc etc etc.
    And tries to pull a bs 6.3 BR for it.


    But as for your bounce. I'm calling incompitence on shot collission rather than bias.

    Ignoring the Tu-4 for the moment, since I don't have much useful to say about those
    Regarding the initial post, I was confused in how a panther could have more then 200 mm effective thickness
    So I checked it and I found it to be much more closer to be 130-160mm effective armor (no horizontal angling) which at that point you're much better off shooting the upper glacis
    And another thing you might have forgotten or don't know is that the APCBC shells don't penetrate the same way as you look at it in the garage,
    The way those shells works is, that they penetrate in a much more effective way by changing the angle of pentration, where they impact the armor
    You can find many guides and videos on how all different types of shells work, also feel free to ask questions if u see me online
    This one is a pretty good start if u take the time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDxzRnd8RcM
    Good luck and have fun

    There is also a warthunder wiki I just found (again) which shows and explains very briefly what the different shells are/do
