    Another story from my father-in-law about the weapon his platoon used in Korea, here.

    It's never too late to have a happy childhood

    Interesting to read that the HE round was used in ricochet fire.

    A NAVORD report on HEAT penetration credits the 75mm HEAT round with 3.5 inches (89mm) of penetration, which is really not enough against the T-34/85 glacis (45mm at 60 degrees from vertical giving 90mm line-of-sight thickness), or turret front (90mm rounded).

    All the best,

    John.
