Could some one tell me what the weak spots of the tank are, and what the weakest spot is? What I mean by that is where there is less layers of metal, or however that works...

The rear side (Meaning the rear-quarter, if you will) of every land vehicle is the weakest area. Although I have noticed a glitch where a tank cannon round can destroy an opposing tank in one shot by firing between the turret and the tank's base.... I've only done this twice. By "rear side", i mean... If you shot the back end of a tank's treds from the opposing tank's left or right it would do relatively the same amount of damage as a direct rear hit.

I always thought that where the play sat and the top turned around in circles was a weak spot! Man I will have to remember that...

there all pretty obvious, the same weak spots as a real tank. spot between turret and main body, front and rear of treads, the rear (turret especialy), and the underside (use c4)

Yup, its not a glitch that the tank exploded after one shot... Where the Turrent and the Base join is a very vulnerable spot, Thats why a lot of tanks try and put heavy, and i mean heavy chain around the joint.. so when a shel hits it may divert the shell, or blow it up before hitting the joint, thats on some tanks, sadly the M1A1 doesnt have that feature, maybe because its stronger at that area... i dont know

Also the back of a tank, where the enging lies, its fairly strong, maybe the thickest area of the tank to protect the Engine but sadly it is still a weak spot...

The underbelly, i love it when i am being chased and i lay down and throw a c4 then run, bye tank

I always aim for the rear side/back with the tanks, front on seems to do little damage.
