Harugumo Question

Quick question for you all out there,

I've got the Kitikaze, grinding my way towards the Hairygumbo now. Up till this point I've been the KhabaKiller gunboat build, (BFT/DE/AFT/IFHE), but since the update, is it still necessary to run IFHE on it? I know that it can now pen 32mm armor without it, but does it make it any better / reduce the number of shatters by running it now? The table that I normally look up doesn't have the upgraded 100mm gun IFHE armor thresholds updated on it yet. If not, I'd love to swap IFHE out for CE. Anyone have an answer for this?

You need IFHE to pen 32mm.

With a ships such as Haru, DE is not actually really need because the amount of shells its putting out. But it does need ifhe to pen 32mm armor still.

I thought that they recently updated it so that with Akizuki/Kitikaze/Harugumo could pen 32mm armor without IFHE?

This is incorrect, as far as I know, they changed the HE pen on those 100mms from 1/6 to 1/4 of caliber, so you have 25mm pen without IFHE so you can pen up to 24mm plate without IFHE.

Ah, ok, thanks for clearing that up. So best to stick with my current gunboat build.
