I vaguely remember some designer comment that it was deliberately turned up to 11 ... ahem ... 16 to give a CCV player pause. It's not the first thing to be over/under tweaked. The PF/PFk are overrated and the effects of both direct HE and OBA are underrated. The HE underrating was a quite deliberate decision right from the start with SL.
Which it should. The 16FP isn't a measure of how many steel shards the round can expel or how big the detonation is, but rather a measure of how likely a squad of men would be to stick around once it went off. There is no quantifiable measure of this, unless someone wanted to find AARs that reported in detail what the men's morale was like after an encounter with an enemy tank actually firing the thing.I vaguely remember some designer comment that it was deliberately turned up to 11 ... ahem ... 16 to give a CCV player pause.
