Why shooting the side of a tank results in no damage crits

Recommended Posts

for you that have trouble understanding armor layouts of tanks, I have put together a small but helpful guide as to why your shells may not always do damage even when doing crits on low armor tanks! I have had to reroll 5x, and play tens of thousands of matches til I got hardly blue stats to understand the intricate system of armor in this game.

Here we have a pubby pershing, a typical specimen of the game world of tanks.


You as a slightly above average skill player think, oh boy lets get that damage! So where do you aim?


lets aim at the lowest part of the tank and try to track him! good boy, you surely will track him and get your goodboy spotting points while damaging him.

you fire, but oh no what's this?


you not only didn't damage him, you didn't even track him!


His track absorbed that module damage, and the shell had a trajectory below the actual hull of the tank. 

better luck next time fellow unicum.

That Pershing is not only baiting unicunts into shooting his tracks but is also ready in case anyone tries to flank him. 50%er for sure. 

This is also known as "Tanking for Shitters" ;)

You should make one for Russian tanks and their Stalinium. Hit one flat on the side armor for no damage! 


spaced armor, and angled armor, look closely.
