Combat Performance of 7.5 cm and 8.8 cm Guns

Thankfully, Colonel P.S Igumnov did all the hard work for me, and all I have to do is show figures from his doctoral thesis, "Investigation of Destruction of Domestic Tanks (using the experience of the Great Patriotic War).
Here's a nifty data set, distances of penetrations from the two aforementioned calibers:
And a nicer looking version of the data, compiled by fat-yankey.
