So I am looking at the new German CV info and has pretty much everything listed except the armor pen values of their rockets... Anyone know how to find that info or where it might be?

Is it not in the same place as HE pen would be for everything else? Airplanes module tab?

I didn't think AP pen was shown for anything, rockets, bombs, or guns.

I looked in every place I could find, from ship stats, to all the aircraft modules, port view stats, I certainly don’t see the AP Rocket pen values anywhere and that info seems rather important as it could make a difference in what one might use if the presence of German CVs is heavy on a given day.

try finding AP pen for anything, you wont. because ap pen is not a flat value in wows but a curve (mostly distance related)

Right on the money.

@Hapa_Fodder

As mentioned already by someone earlier, AP Penetration isn't a flat, easy to present value like HE Penetration.  AP Penetration alters quite a bit given different ranges, while HE Rockets & Bombs have fixed values.

 

If we never had an ingame means on figuring out say, Bismarck's AP Penetration capabilities, I highly doubt WG would all the sudden take the time to do so for very niche CV AP Rockets.

I don't think we have to worry about ranges as that will have a maximum value due to being a rocket attack. 

Even if it doesn't get an in game value, a chart with values at a few different angles would be nice.

Yeah could use some clarification on this. We do have the mm pen values for AP bombs that have been data mined but nothing for rockets. They need something in port otherwise its just a guessing game.

I've always thought they should just present AP pen at 3-4 different standard ranges, say 5, 10, 15, and 20km, just so you have some idea.
