    Found this and thought it would help some of us........

    M3 75mm Main Gun Targeting gauge used in the M42A Sherman with ranges in yards.






    Shell, fixed, AP, M61, supercharge, w/tracer, 75-mm gun (In game is “APHE”)

    - M61 (6.63 kg (14.62 lb)) armor-piercing capped ballistic capped high explosive with tracer (APCBC-HE-T) shell. The M61 replaced the M72. The M61 had a muzzle velocity of 617 m/s (2024.28 ft/s) and was credited with the ability to penetrate 81 millimetres (3.2 in) of rolled homogeneous armor plate at 0 from vertical at 500 yards range, which was a quite acceptable performance by the standards of 1942.

    Shell, fixed. HE, M48, normal charge, w/fuze, PD, M48, 75-mm gun (In game is “HE”)

    - The M48 was available in two versions, standard and supercharge, which had an increased propellent charge for greater muzzle velocity (1,885 ft/s (575 m/s) vs. 1,470 ft/s (450 m/s)) and range (2,300 yards greater).

    We do not have the M89 base-ejecting hexachloroethane (HC) smoke round and the M64 white phosphorus (WP or "Willy Pete") round, which proved highly effective in the bocage fighting around Normandy.

    (P.S., I’m still testing these measurements to verify accuracy.)
