Ammunition Data

Note that the penetration values below ("RHAe" in milimeters) are line of sight (LOS) estimations measured at the muzzle against a semi-infinite target meeting the specifications for a NATO single heavy type array. As the armor model of Steel Beasts Professional takes in to account armor angle along with velocity fall off due to range and armor composition, actual in-sim penetration values may vary considerably (generally lower) than what is listed.

The "Range" column indicates a given round's "maximum effective range" and the cutoff range for AI engagements, not the round's maximum possible range. This value is derived from published data representing such factors as tracer burnout (small arms and HMG), ballistic computer limitations, or the round's performance degrading below the 50% probability of hit/kill threshhold.

100mm D-10T: BR-412D AP-T 1200 240 887 1953 This round was still in use by the Egypt and Syria in 1973 Yom Kippur War, since it was surplus ammo by that time and the BM-8 was expensive by comparison. It seems that the BM-8 was fielded exclusively by Warsaw Pact and Soviet units of the same period.

The T-55 with BR-412D should be used for all third world nations until the 1980s.

Based on the penetration value of the BM-4 and BM-6, the BM-4 cannot penetrate the Shot Kal from the front, but the BM-6 can penetrate it in the front hull area.

  • Green text: RHAe (HEAT) penetration
^TOW 2B, RBS56 BILL and RB57 STORM are top attack
*Hellfire, Spike LR and Javelin have a diving terminal phase
#Tandem warhead, defeats ERA
†Minimum range for both top attack and direct fire modes (rev 4.006)

Note that Steel Beasts Professional does not simulate the actual arming or "gathering" ranges for all ATGMs but instead inhibits computer controlled units from firing their missiles within certain ranges. This means that it is possible for units to be destroyed by certain ATGMs if the missile is fired before the element in question is below the minimum range indicated above.
