I was looking for an SAP pen calculation on the forums and couldn't find one.  Is the formula the same as for HE shells?

I noticed last night that my 203 SAP shells on the Amalfi could not pen the Bismarck or Tirpitz which have 50mm deck armor.  I know that HE couldn't pen them from the 203s but thought SAP was stronger with the downside being no fires.

If someone could post the SAP Pen calculation (assuming it is different than the HE calc), would be appreciated.

Hold your cursor over your artillery in port and it should tell you the pen capabilities

Thanks....shows it as 54mm for SAP rounds...which makes it a bit more puzzling why I could not pen the Bismarck or Tirpitz. Appreciate the info...

You can look at the armor model in port. If I remember right the Bismarck has a 50 mm deck, but the side armor will bounce SAP.
