I was doing a captain respec on my Henry and I spotted that IFHE does not have the X thing over it.  Is there a reason for this?  I mean it has some big guns so why is it not crossed out?

I know but its not even there for the Henry.  Its there for all the other ships that it doesnt recommend.  I just wanted to know if there is a reason

IFHE on the Henri allows it to pen 50mm plate. It's an important armor threshold as it's the bow armor of Stalingrad and Moskva. This is why you see people bring Henri IVs to clan battles and the KoTS tournament.

In Random Battles, you also got lots of ships with 50mm decks.  German BBs from Tier VII on have 50mm decks and they are very popular ships.  Guns of HIV's size getting HE Pens on top of Fire chances are nothing to brush off.  Throw in MBRB consumable for sh*ts and giggles!

That explains that Henri that melted me in a game last night. Still I drew him far of enough that my clanmates were able to kicking the stuffing out his and he was alone vs 3 at the end. One of our biggest wins of the night.

IF/HE on Henri IV also lets you do evil things to Khabas and their 50mm armor.

I remember a while back I was tormenting some poor GK.  The match was already a lopsided win for us, we were just cleaning up.  This GK's flank got rolled by us so hard that he was down in the south border dodging shots.  After he died he asked me WTH my fire chance was.  25% or something like that, with signal flags and DE totalled.  IFHE made it even worse for him.

"Jesus" was all he said :Smile_teethhappy:

 

German BBs with their 50mm decks take HE spam pretty well, despite a bunch of guys on the boards thinking they're exceptionally vulnerable.  They're not.  But HIV with IFHE + DE + Signal Flags eats 50mm armor like it's cool.  Mind you, Hindenburg pens 50mm even without IFHE.  It's just HIV has a bigger shell damage as well as very high fire chance.

IFHE Henri is viable for cometitive but for random, you can put it somewhere else.

 

The "X" on skill just means it provide near no benefit. That's why you can see as a BB player a big "X" on IFHE but nothing on SE.
