So I sometimes have to fire HE at, for example, a JPE 100. I did around 200 dmg each shot. However, I shot HE at a hull down E 100 and did 100-150 dmg per shot. Does the amount of damage dealt with HE differ because of armor thickness or is it all chance?

When a he shell hits and doesn't pen half the damage goes into thin air and the rest tries to leak through the armor. The higher the alpha/calibre of the he shell the more damage "leaked" through their armor at what rate I don't know

I heard armor thickness negates some splash damage.

HE rounds look for weapspots close to where they where fired, damage also depends in armor of nearest weakspots

I find if you are going to fire he fire it at the weakest flatest part of the tank for the full effect to take place if you cant fire at a weak armored spot then fire at the flatest part of the tank that looks like it will get full effect i find turrets take most damage not the hulls

I was firing regular AP rounds at an E100 (all red) which only had about 220 HP left. After the third shot rang off without so much as scratching it, I changed up to a HE and blew it away. The tank was still pink and red, but it worked.

Armor thickness does reduce the damage of HE.

Also, tracks can absorb the damage caused by HE shells...but then that's the same with AP shells anyway.
