Question with regards to AP

I am having trouble understanding some aspects of AP as it works in the game, namely I'd like to be able to see penetration values at different ranges for the guns on my ship and enemy ships.

 

I can't seem to find a penetration table in the harbor, is this an intentionally hidden number that I'm supposed to get a feel for as I play or is it tied to something else?

You won't find penetration values for AP shells ingame.  Go to the Fitting Tool link in my signature, then hit the Artillery Chart.

 

There's lots of things in the game that you can't find out while in it, and have to do some homework.

 

Anyways, good luck and keep at it.  Learn what you can and if you got questions, ask them.  We argue with each other a lot around here about certain things, but you'll find that the knowledge around here is pretty good.

If you're a BBer, I've found just memorizing or noting bow overmatch thresholds on the various BBs is a big help.  And for higher tiers, it helps a bit to look at the cruisers as well.  Otherwise, I just observe how my engagement unfolds and switch based on results.

Unfortunately the way angles of fall and target angle work the pure numbers are... less than helpful. They can tell you relatively what guns pen more than others but turning that into this ship penetrating this plate at this range/angle is more involved than is practical.

You can use this website to look up and compare penetration values.

Thanks this is exactly the sort of tool I was looking for slight problem though in that I only own the Italian ships as they're my highest nation and what I really started with and they're not listed but thank you nonetheless
