Okay, not many are interested in the ground aspects of the game but I just noticed after several tests that the small calibre AT guns can't hit wall in the game.

I got immediately better results with 50mm cannons and 76mm FGs, but the smaller ones couldn't destroy cars even if they were encircled by a car column.

They did fire but scored no hits. Nor did they any damage.

You can whack a truck with 37mm AP without damaging it much at all just by not hitting a
major solid part. If it doesn't have to move later you can even hit it in some critical
spots and never notice.
Same with a LAW rocket FWIW, nice big boom and when the smoke clears the truck is still
there most of time as if nothing happened. The AP shell just makes a small hole clear
through and keeps on going.

my way of think is similary.

for example, when I attack a column with the ME-262, I get much less hits then with a P-51 B (both having 4 guns).

I think the explosive charged placed on the projectiles don't make damage to ground targets rather then in planes.

Yes, that is true about AP ammo but they couldn't take out light armor either.
