The Polish version of this gun, mounted in a tank has HE.
But neither the Polish nor the Axis Minor ATG version is shown as having HE. Of course, this is just taken from Chapter H

I suspect that you are most likely right about no HE for the 6 Ton. However due to my nitpicking nature, I can't totally rule out HE. Again an overactive and pedantic imagination.
Well it is an educated guess for this tank and for many other things in the Chapter H we wrote fro HP!. I can see the point either way. On the other hand, as this particular tank saw action in 2 or 3 occasions which have any potential for ASL scenario and in 2 of these this vehicle will be shooting Russian tanks it really does not have any significant difference in ASL terms.

The Bofors ATG is more important in ASL terms as this was in use several hundred examples throughout the War. And for that I have direct quote how it was.

Agreed both on the relatively few actions involving the original 6 Ton and the the importance of the Bofors AT.

Anyway a holy SSR absolves many, many ASL sins 🙏.
