I like using this type of shell for maps like Breakaway , hunting tanks at great distances or for stopping bolts and hovercrafts dead in their tracks
Although can’t get these to respond to Helis , no matter how close you fire the shell to it… and when you actually get a direct hit with one I’m not too sure the hit registers any damage
anyone test ?
Not intended for use against aircraft as that would make it too OP. What it does excel at is long range hits vs ground vehicles. I parked one tank on one end of the map and another at the top of the mountain on the RU side of Breakaway and was able to hit it with staff shell at over 2200m away. In an actual game this won't happen as you will be out of visual range but it just goes to show you that if you can get eyes on a vehicle you can really pound it.
The downside is the weak splash damage but you can augment that with a secondary weapon + gunner/weapon station.
