ok, after reading a whole bunch of posts all over the internet, this is still clear as mud.

The 105mm secondaries on the Graf absolutely don't get the /4 HE pen buff, right?

The case for the 150mm is more murky - it DOES seem to get the /4 buff. but again, there's not a definitive answer here.

The answer to these questions (along with the FDG 105mm buff)  ABSOLUTELY need to be either on the respective ships Wiki Entry, or on the main HE penetration wiki page.

That we have to scour Reddit and other places for a "maybe possibly might be" answer is ludicrous. and please don't tell me to look at the DevBlog and Release Notes, because the former is filled with speculation and non-final assertions that don't make it into the game, and the latter is neither easily searchable, nor complete (which is astounding for "Release" docs).

Trying out a ship I don't own (using a  just for testing captain respec) also not a viable answer.

So, what is the answer to the HE pen for the Graf Zeppelin, and why isn't it in the wiki?

All 105mm secondaries on tier VIII+ German cruisers, battleships, and carriers pen 25 mm of plating (1/4 pen). Lower tier BBs that also have these 105mm guns, such as Scharnhorst, do not get the extra penetration buff for these weapons.

For German battleships in general, secondaries of 128mm or larger get 1/4 pen.

Totally agree.  Having to rely on non-official sources for this stuff can be frustrating.

However, one of the best non-official sources for this stuff is https://wowsft.com/?lang=en
