Is Inertial HE/Frag that uncommon? I thought it was just the go-to HE shell after you get more than a couple warheads. HE has diminishing returns, Frag doesn't and at 180 performs a similar function as HE. So as HE provides a lesser return you add in frags.

Getting off-topic here, but... where is the point where the diminishing returns set in? And I reckon the same goes for CRAM?

Diminishing returns are there from the second warhead as damage is proportional to (number of warheads)^0.65. The number of fragments on the other hand is simply the number per warhead times the number of warheads.

Apparently the 'number of pellets' for CRAMs is directly proportional to the explosive damage, but iirc the pack rate suffers from diminishing returns too.

@AdNecrias
I had never heard of it before I tried it out so I assumed it was not widely used.
