Hl/B and Hl/C Hollow Charge ammunition data

Post by Miles Krogfus » 10 Apr 2021 03:46

Use of Hl/B and Hl/C saved from becoming extinct at least for many months various caliber German field artillery and tank/assault guns. An example was the 2 SS division Das Reich's 19 captured T34's, from July through August 1943 using 7.62 cm Pzgr.39 rot and Hl/B against Russian T34's with BR 350 B projectiles. Read Otto Weidinger "Division Das Reich" Band IV:1943, pages 199-200. I post here data from three 7.5 cm firing tables giving velocity and accuracy figures for Hl/B, rated as penetrating 75 mm at all angles and ranges and Hl/C rated as penetrating 100 mm.
