Default Re: 10.5cm K gepanzerte Selbstfahrlafette IVa (Dicker Max)

"Encyclopedia of German tanks..." article for the vehicle has 132mm vs 0 degrees and 111mm vs 30 degrees at 2000 meters. Ammo not specified. Appendix in the same book has similar figures for the same gun - the 10,5cm K18. All 30 degrees with PzGr Rot (ABCBC according to Hogg)

100m - 164mm
500m - 149mm
1000m - 133mm
1500m - 119mm
2000m - 109mm

With 164mm at 100m and 30 degrees, I would think that 0 degree penetrations would be more like 190-200mm point blank?
