I had a quick question relating to the Gewehrpanzergranate 30 as seen in the Gewehrgranatgerät weapon. The standard Gewehrgranatgerät is listed with having a HEAT round (with value 1) that I sometimes see equipped in units. However the Gewehrpanzergranate 30 makes an appearance as a separate weapon in 1942 with an HEAT value of 2 as well as an HE value.

I have a couple of questions about this. First several sources claim the Gewehrpanzergranate 30 penetration as 30mm which would be in line with the diameter of the shaped charge.

Second, what round is the 1cm HEAT value in the standard Gewehrgranatgerät weapon referring to?

Third, since the Gewehrpanzergranate 30 is simply the HEAT warhead used in the Gewehrgranatgerät and is roughly identical to the Gewehrsprenggranate, would it make sense to use the HEAT value in the standard rifle grenade system refer to the Gewehrpanzergranate 30 round. This would not only be a bit more logical, but potentially free up a valuable weapon slot in the Oob 17.

That question is now on next years list to investigate. Right now I have no idea without digging into it and I don't have time to do that now so I'll do it later

While you are at it look into the Sturmpistole, which was a Kampfpistole modified to fire the Panzerwurfkörper 42 LP shaped charge warhead with a penetration of 80mm.

Here's the answer to question #1........ it's a game code issue..... the nominal HEAT value of 1 given to WPN 93 allows it to be used by the game in close assaults. It was added in for that purpose about 8 years ago. Wpn #94 heat pen increased to 3
