French battleship 152mm secondary batteries didn't get their penetration buff like all the other 152mm guns, so they have a base pen of 25mm and with IFHE can only go up to 31mm. This is true for all the French battleships above tier 8.

Spec out of IFHE and go Demo. Spec out of Secondary spec once you get republic.

The only 152mm guns that got a buff from the standard 1/6 penetration to 1/5 were the guns of tier VIII+ cruisers. See the chart below from the news article that dropped with the patch. The only other such change last patch was to IJN 100mm guns (from 1/4 to 3/10).

The changes in HE penetration of some German 150mm and 128mm guns, including secondaries on mid-to-high tier BBs and cruisers, was a +1mm increase based on the change in the general HE penetration rule from "pens less than" to "pens less than or equal to" the result of the calculation based on shell size (rounded to the nearest whole number). For example, for German 150mm guns not mounted on destroyers, 150/4=37.5, which rounds to 38 (these guns get 1/4 base pen vs the standard 1/6). Under the old system, that would equate to 37mm of HE penetration, but under the new rule these guns pen 38mm of plating. The same reasoning is behind the increase in HE penetration of 180mm, 150-152mm from tier I-VII, 113mm, and German 128mm guns not on DDs (these also get 1/4 pen).
