After seeing this:

I thought I'd make a post for the new/learning players how to deal with these buggers.

Yeah seriously, the Brit TDs have such humungo cupolas. I never seem to have a problem penning them, even with my KV-5.

It seems to eat the ending tag if you use caps.  Try making all the spoiler and /spoiler tags lowercase.

For the record, the cupola still has 102mm of armor. So really, the people that need this thread most don't even have the guns to pen it. Nothing worse than getting into a fight with an AT 2, and you can't even pen it's weak spots. Also, the machinegun is another good spot to aim for if you're stuck shooting at the front of an AT. The AT 2 is, by far, the best of the series. After that, the weak spots get bigger and more numerous. Such a pointless line when being a steel wall is all it has going for it, and half it's front is a weak spot.

LOL.

 

I was cornered in my AT2 by a Pz4, T28 and something else.  I figured I was dead.  Then the PZ4 bounced 2 shots off me (NO DERP GOLD!).  I got all 3 of them :)

AT-15 is even easier, just shot the gun.

 

175mm pen gets thru' the mantlet easy and there's a big unarmored hole behind it.

There are large weak points on the hulls though, the odd hatch on the at2 and gun on basically all of them.

The fake gun (and everything around it) on the AT-8 is also a very large weakspot.

 

However, don't try it on the AT-7.......

Bonus for killing a noob in his AT2: they scream at you for cheating/using gold.

Tracking them usually causes them to repeatedly insist you are a coward.

I've always gone for the smaller gun, I'll adjust my aim for the AT8.

Navy, you have obviously not played Brit td's. at 2's mantlet is weak. At8’s secondary gun is 75mm and that side of the tank is 50mm. At7 is just the cupolas. At15/at15a gun mantlet. And tortoise has the cupola. On the at 8 and the at7, the top machine guns are loader hit boxes.

Tl;dr, cupolas aren't the only option.

Mantlets are also weak.

If you want to really hurt an AT, go around the back and hit the rear of the casemate. It's an Ammorack hitbox.

You shouldn't question Navy, he's a forum mod and therefore knows what he's talking about. They check content very carefully to ensure it's quality content before being posted.

While this is true, the fact remains that cupola's are generally the easiest place to hit.

Are you for real? That's not how it works. Being a mod doesn't make you infallible.

 

Zdude is correct in pointing that there are other viable weakspots besides the cupolas.
