I'm not so sure.
The ammo in FB 1.1 has great HE effect, but only rarely detroys armor.
Anyone else like to share their experiences (post patch)?

I've found it to be roughly as effective as before against aircraft targets, and considerably more effective against armor.

T-34s can be destroyed now from the front or the side, but requires multiple hits.

I tried it yesterday... took 3 shots from rear to destroy a T-34.
But is real life ( according to Rudel ) it often took more than just one shot. Once he used allmost all his ammo on one T-34.

While I can now take out a T-34 from the side, it is still very difficult. One problem is that you do not get the fireball that lets you know you've put "steel on target" as was evident in the HE rounds. This makes it hard to walk your rounds onto the armor. We've found it more reliable to sight on the first tickmark below the center crosshair rather than centered in the Revi. This is with your guns are converged at 350m. I'm sure it changes somewhat with different convergence settings. This may be due to the drop in the 37mm round.

I have had some problems with killing tanks with the Ju 87G as well in the new patch. But after reading this post I gave it another try. Using the old method I used in FB 1.0 (attacking from 6 high at a 45 degree angle) I was able to achieve excellent results once I got adjusted to the new trajectory. I was able to kill T-34's 8 out of 8 times with a single shot from the 37mm's. I set convergance to 350m as suggested by Spectre.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.
