Sounds too convoluted. There'd be issues with cumbersome implementation (Relic skeleton crew working on patch implementation, not sure if target tables can even handle penetration), odd mechanics (nothing in the game currently works like that) and most importantly player communication (we want to remove hidden modifiers, not add them).
Target tables do handle penetration vs target type, and a few weapons have damage vs target type (handheld AT weapons and AT guns for example do almost nothing to infantry via target table damage type).
The reason why I suggested Panther penetration was that it was the only (I think) tank destroyer type vehicle that didn't get penetration (or accuracy iirc) through veterancy. The reason why I suggested lowering IS-2 RoF is because Panthers have low DPM, and it would allow for the Panther to trade shots more evenly. The two would indirectly contribute to Panthers being more effective vs the IS-2 as well as other "problem" heavies people like to complain about, like KV-1s and Churchills.
Of course, I don't really care if IS-2s got an armor nerf to 340. I was just suggesting something to hit more than one bird with one stone.
