Still needs good anmo so, and also is super easy to kill Challenger 2, you can 460 dmg at its frontal armour on a fully T-90, with stock anmunition!!

This. The Challenger 2 is a good tank, but it has an extremely weak spot on the lower front glacis plate. It also has only 750-ish health, which isn't remarkably high. Couple that with 400 damage and a 2.4 second reload, and you're talking a tank that could be significantly improved without becoming overpowered. If it fired a HEAT shell, only one level of HEAT, it'd be a better tank than it currently is and it wouldn't be rated any higher. Admittedly the rating only tells part of the story, but the Challenger 2 is also rather slower than most tanks it encounters when maxed. It can be competitive with a good driver, but it's very far from being a Merkava. It'll always be a defensive tank thanks to the low top speed - at least give it a fighting chance by giving it some decent ammo.

Chally 2 is supposed to have good armor, I don't see it. I left mine at lvl 61 were it's a great performer unless of course I run into the occasional low lvl type 10. Give it better ammo and I would definitely max it otherwise...

well the multiquoting thing for comments is being weird right now and all the quotes keep dissapearing, so ill do this in a makeshift style:

 

fierro just dont vote. but yeah i believe you and many player will be like that. not caring then complaing its op

 

 

 

 

would only british tanks use this shell? if that is so then it wouldnt be a good additon to tanktastic since players would just buy the british tanks.

 

 

 

 

it would be cool to add it since its does a unique thing.

 

 

 

 

there was so much reading in this topic, and i read it all. im gonna say yes.

High Explosive Squash Head ammunition. I think it would be a good idea to add this to the British tanks that are lacking HEAT, as It would be a good alternative. Bad against spaced, good against HEAT, but only on the British tanks.

Rats! I don't have a British tank!

I'm thinking HESH shell is to be added,some did say HESH shell do less penetration than HEAT. think about T-90(max) your on a Chally 2 and your being flanked on your sides and you shoot at his side and its repells the shell then it would be over for you because you didn't have the maneuverability to put flanked the T-90.

Britain is the primary user of HESH since their tanks still use rifled barrels, but the US also uses the same types of shells, under the name HEP (High Explosive, Plastic).

According to Wikipedia (which cannot tell a lie), besides the USA and the UK, China, Sweden, India, and Israel also use HESH/HEP rounds. Canada also fires a HESH round in their Leopard C1 and C2 tanks. Which means the major tanks firing HESH would be the Arjun, Type 99, Abrams, Leo1 & 2, Challenger 1 & 2, Merkava, Magach, M60, and the Chieftain. There'd be a few others, but the list wouldn't be long.

you do know that it kinda works 2 ways, right? while it will be good against arty, tanks without spaced armor (abrams, for instance), will kinda suffer a lot as well. eh... the chally 2 is gonna be the only tank with decent spaced armor that fires it anyway. so non-spaced armor MBTs will be glass cannons.

true but you've seen me use different shells on a fly so you know I would choose the best shell for the situation at hand which yes I would use HESH mainly against Artillery and no spaced armor tanks I would probably still use HEAT more against Abrams for I sense that even with the Abrams you would have to get to its sides to do anything with HESH where as HEAT does great damage anywhere on a non spaced tank
