OHK radius is as follows:
PZIV = 1.13
T-34/85 = 1.15
Sherman HE = 1.08
now if in your opinion 0.07 bigger OHK radius is more important than AOE radius of 4 I can not really help you because you are cherry picking stat and painting a false picture.
Sherman HE round are simply not inferior to PzIV/T-34/85 as anyone can see from MMX analysis.
I thought OHK of HE shell would be 0,88 as the other Sherman shells. Yeah 1.08 to 1,15 / 1,13 is neglectable.
Again cherry picking and quoting half my post just so that you can compare different things. This is what I posted and what you deliberately left out.
While you are doing this constantly (deliberatley leaving out that half of posts where you can't argue about anymore) that wasn't what I did (look further below, there I declare why I compared to TD). In addition I just admitted I was wrong (see above), haven't seen you doing this once since I'm at this forums. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
"The 76mm has the most cost efficient AT shell and it penetration values are way high than other units of its class.
M10 and M36 are decided TD and not in the same class as the 76mm.
The switch mechanism does not make the unit change class.
The class is defined by its shell. One of its shells is like beeing a medicore TD, the other shell is like beeing medicore generalist tank. So there is no other unit that can be compared to 76mm. This only would be true if shell switch would be instant, but that is not the case. 76mm can change between role of TD/generalist tank. It is both of two worlds. It is logical to compare its AP shell which has no AI value to the shell of other TDs which have no AI value too.
I am not sure why you want to argue semantic here, things are pretty simple if 76mm had both HAVP and HE shell it would be simply be OP.
Op is defined by performance in comparison to cost. If a unit is too cost efficient it is op. Having HE and AP shell simply has to be taken into account if you calculate cost. So as I said two times already in this thread a cost adjustment has to be made in that case.
