The Soldier Target Type

The armor type of a unit determines how much accuracy, damage, suppression and penetration a unit receives from specific weapons. The effects of a weapon on a specific armor type can be found in the "target table" for that weapon on www.coh-stats.com (http://www.coh-stats.com/). There are different types of armor, before Opposing Fronts, the vast majority of infantry were of the "Infantry" type, some were "Infantry Elite" (Rangers and vetted Wehrmacht units), Airborne had "Infantry Airborne", and Knight's Cross Holders were "Infantry Heroic."


With the release of Opposing fronts British and Panzer Elite Infantry got their own armor type called "Infantry Soldier" (Luftwaffe Ground Forces are "Infantry" and British officers are the superior "Infantry Heroic"). Most small arms have modifiers reducing their effectiveness against soldier target type, making Soldier infantry much more durable.

The full effects of "Soldier Armor" in general is as follows:

All percentages are relative to the weapon's effectiveness versus Regular Infantry. For example, a Jeep has a 0.75 damage penalty on the target table vs Infantry and 0.5 vs Soldier Infantry, 0.5 is 33% less damage than it would do to Regular Infantry.
It should be noted that Flamethrowers do no extra damage to Soldier Target type, but are still effective because they suffer no penalty as well.
All heavy MGs, including vehicle mounted, have the same penalty: -25% accuracy, -25% damage and +25% suppression. Exceptions are listed in the following pages.
The majority of artillery weapons do -30% damage, while the Stuka and Hotchkiss Stuka do +20% damage.
Most tank and light vehicle main guns have -10% damage penalties. Exceptions are listed in the following pages.
