The main Question is why anyone would fire HE in Yammy in the first place...

 

You fire positron beams, not HE shells. It's simple.

The thing is, senpai, she's accurate enough and the AP does so much overpen damage that even jst overpens will seriously hurt DD's...

True true yeah and there's no such DD having more than 76mm armour plating.

Exactly. The only reason someone fires HE in a Yammy is if the regular positron beam weapons are down.

I don't suppose it would make a difference on the secondaries, would it?

Maybe, but if you're going for a secondary Yammy you're doing it wrong. Secondaries are German specialty.

Not sure if Yammy's secondaries are still viable, they have the alpha damage but yeah they are crying for range, Republique has range and fire chance and the Greater Surface has volume fire when it comes to their secondaries.

Her and GK both. Don't the larger secondaries on Yammy fire AP though?

Yeah they do, that is a massive draw back actually, but compare the 127 & 128mm guns across the 3 ships.

Exactly. The biggest thing about German 2nd's is that you have to show more broadside to get them all firing, compared to Republique.
