Summary0006650: Ah-64 Apache M230 gun has too little penetration
DescriptionThe Apaches gun seems to only penetrate around 25mm RHA when it should have closer to 50mm penetration.

Even the Ah-1z guns penetrate more at 36mm .

https://youtu.be/RCGKUc7E8Rg [^]
Steps To Reproduce1. Place a millitary Cargo tower into the Editor and shoot the walls with the AH-64. The tower has around 30mm of armor but the apache can not penetrate it.

2. Compare it to the Ah-1z which can penetrate those walls.
3. See video
Additional Informationhttps://www.gd-ots.com/munitions/medium-caliber-ammunition/30x113mm/ [^] Lists apache gun penetration at least 25.4 mm RHA at 50degrees which is about 40mm RHA flat penetration.

"25.4 mm RHA at 50degrees which is about 40mm RHA flat penetration." it is closer to 30mm - 33.16. Are you actually calculating 40 degree angle?

" Yes it should be 40 degrees it seems. 33mm rha would match what is presented here https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net/ndia/2003/gun/roth.pdf#page=10 [^] where they seem to have about 1.5 inches or 38mm of penetration.

ah, I see, they are taking plate at 90 degrees as their point of reference. Some of the military materials are treating 0 degree value when plate is lying flat, not when it is standing at 90 degree from the ground
