In 1943 many German tanks were provided with "Schurzen" to better resist Soviet AT rifles fired from the flank. The additional side benefit of the Schurzen was a stand-off for heat rounds as well which made those much less effective.
Since the Schurzen were fairly thin, what benefit would be gained against larger AP rounds of 45mm and up?
In the game there is no differentiation for different ammo types fired at the flanks of German tanks fitted with Schurzen.
Here is a possible home rule to better differentiate the effects of different ammo on these.
1. ATR and Heat rounds would be the standard effect.
2. AP rounds in the 45 to 57mm caliber or less would add +2 to the normal side armor.
3. AP rounds of larger than 57mm and up would only add +1 to the normal side armor instead of the full Shurzen effects.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Since this extra armor is fairly thin, I really don't see it having a full effect against standard AP rounds than the other two types I listed.
