HE SHELLS even though they say have an explain RADIUS of( for 152mm guns) around 3-5 meters never actually desk that explosive damage. 

 

That's because the metric system and measurement are off by a long shot. 

 

Suppose the M4 it's front can't be more than 1.8 meters wide so taking that into account when you use the range finder to calculate the minimum distance to the ground it definitely shows it wrong. 

 

Whether it is due to the maps being small or other reasons the measurements need to be corrected for the best HE shell performance and explosive utilisation.

So you use range finder to find hight of a vehicle based on its width? What....?

No, the way HE works is that if it HITS a tank, it will only damage that one tank, explosion radius is not counted. If the HE shell hits the ground or other objects, then HE explosion radius is counted and you can damage multiple vehicles.
