Apparently I should really go with IFHE on my new Schlieffen. That said, I have never really used IFHE nor understand the penalty for using it that well. It mentions "without modifiers, you chance of causing a fire is reduced by half" if you choose it. Does that mean if I choose Pyro (I am assuming this is a modifier) along with IFHE, my chance of fire is NOT reduced? Or is that reduction across the board?

Pyro only adds an additional 1% to a ship that already has 27% - so I am thinking it doesn't make sense to choose Pyro--correct?

The fire chance penalty for IFHE works on your base fire chance. IFHE reduces your fire chance by 50%, then any bonuses from Demolition Expert or signals are added to that value.

You’re thinking about this wrong. You take DE for the same reason you would take IFHE - to boost the performance of your secondaries. They also receive the bonuses and penalties from both skills.

You take IFHE on the Schlieffen. It will allow it to Pen 32mm of armor. You'll do far more damage with that. The secondaries fire so fast that YOU WILL get fires also, even if the base is halved. 

Lutjens on the boat and you'll have a rainbow.
