Insufficient explosive power for SMAW-NE/excessive explosive power for SMAW-HEDP
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Despite the SMAW-NE being a thermobaric round with an enhanced explosive capability when compared to the other SMAW rounds, it performs more as a penetrating weapon rather than a thermobaric HE round. From what it appears like, the HEDP round seems to be functioning like the NE should (it has a large high explosive effect in addition to armor penetrating capabilities), while the NE has a minimal HE effect and an erroneous amount of armor penetrating capability.

Circled blue area show point of impact for the SMAW-NE round, notice how only the first row of infantry were killed (and all of them were un armored).
